With just a few weeks before it hits theaters, Universal released six film clips from Oliver Stone's R-Rated crime thriller "Savages." The clips feature all the main players: Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson as Chon and Ben, two prosperous marijuana growers; Blake Lively as 'O', the pot dealers' shared surfer girlfriend; John Travolta as Dennis, a dirty DEA agent; Salma Hayek as Elena, a ruthless leader of a Mexican drug cartel and Benicio Del Toro as Lotto, Elena's sadistic thug enforcer. In the film, the story starts when Chon and Ben's girl is kidnapped and held for ransom by the Mexican drug cartel. Now the boys are faced with a dire dilemma: Should they agree to give up control of their flourishing weed business or take on the powerful mob alone?
Oscar-winning visionary director Oliver Stone adapts author Don Winslow's best-selling novel into this all-star ensemble crime drama about a pair of peaceful, Laguna Beach marijuana dealers on who are targeted for extortion by the ruthless Mexican Baja Cartel. Ben (Aaron Johnson) is a devout Buddhist and dedicated philanthropist, and his best friend Chun (Taylor Kitsch) is a former mercenary who trained as a Navy SEAL. They may not seem like major drug dealers, but together they make a comfortable living selling top quality marijuana. And they share more than just a profitable business; their mutual girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) is more than enough woman for two ambitious young entrepreneurs to handle. But just as Ben and Chun are feeling like they're on top of the world, their blissful life of lawless hedonism threatens to yield dire repercussions. The Mexican Baja Cartel wants a piece of the action, and their cruel leader Elena (Salma Hayek) has dispatched her top hatchet man Lado (Benecio Del Toro) to ensure that she gets it. When the cartel kidnaps Ophelia and threatens to kill her unless Ben and Chun comply, the desperate pot dealers enlist the aid of a shady DEA agent (John Travolta) to try and avert a tragedy. Emile Hirsch and Uma Thurman co-star.
