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.

    taylor kitsch aka boxoffice poison

    That's ridiculous. Disney did a terrible job marketing John Carter, which is actually a fun, entertaining film. The dvds/blurays have been flying off the shelves at stores & it was the #1 dvd. Battleship was a bit choppy & could have used some better editing but it was fun & the ending was great. Neither movie did badly at the box office because of Taylor Kitsch. If you've ever seen Friday Night Lights then you'd know he's an excellent actor. If you haven't seen it then I highly recommend it. Such a beautiful show. I'd also mention both John Carter & Battleship made tons of money overseas. Who knew the Avengers would take over America?

    Nithely done, Kingthlayer, but I dunno how much he can be blamed for "Battleship". He wasn't really marketed at the expense of the rest of the cast, and I think its failure probably has more to do with everyone (correctly) thinking it was a ridiculous idea for a movie and staying away.
