From legendary director Oliver Stone (Platoon, Natural Born Killers), SAVAGES is about Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Aaron Johnson, Kick Ass), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Taylor Kitsch, Battleship), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry-raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Blake Lively, The Town). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town... until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the Baja Cartel, Elena (Salma Hayek, Frida), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon-with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (John Travolta, Pulp Fiction)-wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high-stakes, savage battle of wills.
