Featuring a massive ensemble including Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir, Oliver Stone's upcoming "Savages," based on Don Winslow’s best-selling crime novel, is bringing a lot of talent and a crackling story to the big screen. And to help ease you into the film, we've got an exclusive video below all about Taylor Kitsch's character Chon to get you started.

In the film Chon -- a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary -- runs a lucrative, peaceful business producing marijuana with his friend and business partner Ben (Johnson), and the duo also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Everything is peaceful in their world until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands they partner with them. The pair refuse to give up their turf, but when the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), go after them, they underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends.

A thriller arriving right in the heat of the summer season, "Savages" promises to be something intriguingly differet at the multiplex. The film opens on July 6th -- watch the video below.
