Savages, directed by Oliver Stone, is an upcoming release about two guys who run a profitable business raising some of the best homegrown weed ever. Ben; played by Aaron Johnson, is a marijuana producer, and his close friend Chon; played by Taylor Kitsch, is a former navy seal. Both guys have more in common than just weed, and share a love for the beautiful Ophelia; played by Blake Lively.
Life seems great in Southern California, at least until the Mexican Baja Cartel decide to move in demanding a partnership with the trio. The head of the cartel Elena; played by Selma Hayek, and her enforcer Lado; played by Benicio Del Toro underestimate the bond of friends Ben, Chon and Ophelia. With the help of dirty DEA agent, played by John Travolta, they wage a war against the Cartel. A war that can only been deemed unwinnable causing a series of ploys and maneuvers in a “high-stakes savage battle of the wills.”
Savages releases to theatres on July 6th 2012. Be sure to check out the trailer below and the following links for more information on the cast, crew and even Oliver Stone.
