The Savages Trailer: Oliver Stone Returns With Drug Cartels, Boobs McLegsy, Tim Riggins And A Scary As F*ck Benicio Del Toro
That's already a bizarre and kind of awesome cast, but you can also throw in John Travolta as a crooked DEA agent, Emile Hirsch, and Uma Thurman. A lot of people get cranky about Blake Lively, particularly her role in The Town. All I can say is that I grew up with a lot of girls/women like her and... she kind of nailed it.
Anyway, here's the trailer. It looks pretty great:
Oh, Benicio. You are so delightfully terrifying.
Stone hasn't been great in his last couple of outings -- Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was absolutely dreadful, and W. was nothing more than OK. But this looks like a kind of harsh, gritty fun. I've never read the novel, but I read Winslow's Death and Life of Bobby Z which was absolutely fucking outstanding. It was, unfortunately, adapted into a movie in 2007 that starred Paul Walker. It is best if we don't speak of it. Anyway, if nothing else the source material is probably pretty solid.
