Savages, poster

On July 6, Oliver Stone's "Savages" will debut with a cast of scene-chewing veterans (John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and Uma Thurman) and sexy rising stars (Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively). Among the new trailer's attractions are Lively's formidable body (which will sell tickets); her character is dating both the brains and brawn of a two-man pot-dealing empire in Laguna Beach. Johnson's a genius-botanist-philanthropist and Kitsch is an ex-Navy SEAL (he'll be happy to move beyond "John Carter" and "Battleship"). Lively is the pawn kidnapped by Hayek's Mexican drug cartel, which is trying to regain control over the turf occupied by Lively's boyfriends.

The hardboiled thriller based on Don Winslow's book, also stars Oscar nominee Demián Bichir, Joel David More, Mia Maesto and Emile Hirsch in supporting roles.
