SAVAGES, Hayek

Technically, I'm a Savage. But that's not the point. Oliver Stone's "SAVAGES" arrives this weekend and if Blake Lively in a three-way isn't enough to get you to the theaters, there's a handful of featurettes and clips to wet your appetite below. In one, they explain the grass in the film is not real; in another they each exclaim "I'm a Savage."

As you can tell from the second and fourth videos, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and John Travolta enjoy chewing every bit of scenery - they spend over two hours wiping the floor with Lively and her boyfriends, Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson. The film weaves between over-the-top ridiculousness and gratuitous beauty and/or torture shots of Lively (who isn't). It's more a genre-comedy than a thriller. With 73% on the Tomatometer, Stoners will be lured by this frenetic slice of Americana.
