Guns, Tattoos & Blades: Poster For Oliver Stone's 'Savages' With Blake Lively, Benicio Del Toro, John Travolta & More

Recently moved to a release date right in the middle of summer, just a few days after "The Amazing Spider-Man," Universal has high hopes that Oliver Stone's "Savages" will be a pulpy multiplex diversion. And the first poster has dropped giving us a much better look at the array of characters we'll meet in the gritty thriller.

Based on the best-selling crime novel by Don Winslow, Blake Lively plays the gal pal of two Laguna Beach drug dealers (Aaron Johnson and Taylor Kitsch) who is kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel who wants to move in on their turf. The cast is rounded out impressively by Benicio Del Toro, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, the recently Oscar nominated Demian Bichir, Salma Hayek, Joel David Moore and Emile Hirsch. And it seems everyone is pushing their game a bit. Hayek has borrowed a wig from Nic Cage, Lively is doing her sexpot thing, Travolta is gleefully playing a burned out DEA agent, Del Toro brandishes a blade as a cartel enforcer....and who is in the mask? Could it be Hirsch whose role has been kept under wraps?

Hopefully a trailer is around the corner. "Savages" opens on July 6th. [JoBlo] Update: 15 seconds of a new trailer has arrived via MTV. Watch it below and hopefully this means the full thing is right around the corner.

    Came here to say the same thing as Ray H... eerily similar to Babel's poster. Is this a coincidence (do coincidences even exist in Hollywood?!) or are they THAT unoriginal?

    They stole Babel's poster design.

    LOL. You are spot on. It's the same poster as for Babel. Originality is dead in Hollywood.

    You could spot those steely blue eyes from miles away- it's Aaron Johnson in the mask! I like everything I see so far... Hayek's AWESOME wig, Lively's one (of two) expressions, and Kitsch's scars that were probably leftover from Battleship. I hope this movie is awesome. Stone needs a hit after the dreadful Wall Street 2.

    Thanks. Had no idea who the guy at the top of the poster with the scar is. Most people have no idea who this Taylor Kitsch dude is but they keep shoving him front and center for all these big movies. Although just supporting Del Toro or Salma Hayek should be the top pic. Trying to make Taylor Kitsch happen for marketing is going to be this movie's downfall just like it was for John Carter.
