New Restricted ‘Savages’ Promo Hits the Web
by Marc Patterson
Ironically, though I manage a film blog, I actually don’t get out to the movies much. So how the fuck does that work, you ask? Meh… On Demand, Screeners, etc keep my life pretty full. I personally treat theatrical moments like I would my women – I save myself for films that really look like they’re going to deliver a good time and keep me smiling all night long. I have to say, from where I’m sitting Oliver Stone’s Savages might be my big summer cinema score. (Plus, I’m a bonafide sucker for all things Salma Hayek. I mean, you DID read our Top 10 Sexiest Female Vampires article didn’t you?)
Earlier today we were sent this promotional video. I hope you enjoy…
Synopsis: Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry-raising some of the best weed 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 maneuvers in a high-stakes, savage battle of wills.
Savages hits theaters nationwide on July 6, 2012.
