Look out, Spider-Man, because Oliver Stone is on your tail with one helluva cast. Opening just a few days after the webbed one goes 3D, “Savages” is hoping to cater to adults looking for a break from spidey slinging and this first full trailer certainly promises quite the diversion.
Based on the book by Don Winslow, the concept is quite simple: a girl who hangs with two beach bum drug dealers is kidnapped and held for ransom after they refuse to give up turf to a Mexican cartel. And of course, all hell breaks loose. The cast here is outstanding with Aaron Johnson (those dreads!) and Taylor Kitsch leading the pack with Blake Lively (who hints she may not live to the end of the movie) as the girl, Uma Thurman as her mother, Salma Hayek as the leader of the cartel, Benicio Del Toro as her main enforcer, John Travolta as a burnt-out DEA agent, Demián Bichir as a double-crossing attorney who represents Hayek’s cartel, Joel David Moore as a computer nerd, Mia Maestro as Del Toro’s soccer Mom wife and Emile Hirsch in a still secret role.
“Savages” opens on July 6th, watch below. [MTV]
