It looks like Oliver Stone is moving back to the world of crime, drama and mixed film stocks with Savages, which seems more like his successful films on the 90s than the likes of Alexander and Wall Street 2. In the film, Laguna Beach ‘entrepreneurs’ Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch), run a lucrative, homegrown industry – raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town, until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon – with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta) – wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills. Savages is due out in the UK on September 28th, 2012.
