Oliver Stone has enjoyed a long and very illustrious career and any movie of his that hits the big screen is not to be missed.
He has worked in the war genre as well as the biopic and the sweeping historical epic but with this new movie Savages he tackles the crime/drama.
This is the first movie for Stone since Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and we have the new trailer for you to have a look at:
Taylor Kitsch leaves the big budget blockbuster behind as he leads an all star cast alongside Aaron Johnson, Blake Lively as well as Benicio Del Toro and Salma Hayek.
The movie is based on Don Winslow's best-selling crime novel that was named one of The New York Times' Top 10 Books of 2010.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, 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 (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 (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel.
And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and manoeuvres in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
Savages is released 28th September
