In theaters next week, SAVAGES is an ultra-violent drama about a pot-dealing American family who find themselves thrust into the dangerous world of an ominous Mexican drug cartel and international drug trafficking. Co-written and directed by OLIVER STONE, the cast includes TAYLOR KITSCH, AARON JOHNSON, BLAKE LIVELY, JOHN TRAVOLTA, SALMA HAYEK, EMILE HIRSCH, BENICIO DEL TORO and JOEL DAVID MOORE.
Painting an unflattering look at the Mexican government and its justice system might seem a dangerous move for a filmmaker who relies largely on an international audience but, at the recent press conference to promote the movie, STONE said that Mexico is the next stop on the release schedule and he has high hopes that other countries will recognize the reality of his story.
