Universal has released a trailer for Savages.
Savages is an upcoming crime–drama movie, which was directed by Oliver Stone. The film is based on the written novel of the same name by Don Winslow, who co-wrote the action script alongside Shane Salerno.
The adaptation of the bestselling book is about two pot growers from Laguna who are muscled by a Mexican drug cartel. When their shared hippie girlfriend, O (Blake Lively), is kidnapped, two marijuana farmers — University of California, Berkeley graduate Ben (Aaron Johnson) and former U.S. Navy SEAL Chon (Taylor Kitsch) — battle a Mexican drug cartel to get her back.
In the film, Uma Thurman plays O’s mother and John Travolta plays a DEA agent.
Savages is set to hit theaters in July of 2012.
