Oliver Stone is one of the biggest and most respected names in Hollywood. Though his last few films haven’t lived up to the films that made him famous, he’s still prety great at what he does crafting tense stories to explore with multifaceted and fractured characters. In his new film Savages, the girlfriend of two pot growers has been kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel…I’ll stop there because as you’ll see in the trailer, it gets so much deeper and more intriguing from there.
Starring the kind of ensemble that Stone films are known for, Savages has quite an impressive cast to say the least. Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Salma Hayek and Emile Hirsch. So far so good right?
For now this has me more than intrigued and Savages has moved up a dozen places on my Must See list. Oliver Stone brings Savages to theaters at the start of Summer on June 6th, 2012. Looks like I know what to expect after The Avengers. What do yo all think??
