The first trailer for Oliver Stone’s Savages has arrived. The film is based on the novel of the same name and stars Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Blake Lively, and a number of big names in smaller parts. Savages is slated to release on July 6.

Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), 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 (Lively). 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.
