    First Look At Blake Lively & Benicio Del Toro In Oliver Stone's 'Savages'

    Benicio Del Toro, oh where have you been? After his impressive performance in Steven Soderbergh's "Che," Del Toro appeared in the botched monster movie revival "The Wolfman" and has kind of disappeared for a while. He popped in a brief cameo in Sofia Coppola's "Somew...

As Pixar seems like a stud...
