The Poster for Oliver Stone's 'Savages' Adaptation Has Lots of Layers
We got our first look at Blake Lively and Benicio del Toro in the adaptation of Savages, Don Winslow's book of the same name, from director Oliver Stone (Wall Street, Platoon) earlier this year, and now we have a glimpse of all the major players in the film on the first poster for the film. Taylor Kitsch, John Travolta, Selma Hayek, del Toro and Lively all get their own slice of the poster, but Aaron Johnson has his face obscured by a mask. A trailer should be coming soon, but it looks like this is going to be pretty intense and unlike anything Stone has done before; hopefully also better than his sloppy Wall Street sequel.
Here's the first teaser poster for Oliver Stone's adaptation of Savages via JoBlo:
Oliver Stone directs Savages based on Don Winslow's book of the same name, with the screenplay co-written by the author and screenwriter Shane Salerno. The story follows two young, independent Laguna Beach marijuana kingpins (Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson) who are blackmailed into working for the Baja Cartel after their girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) is kidnapped and held for a ransom of every last dollar they've made for the past five years. Benicio del Toro, Selma Hayek, John Travolta, Emile Hirsch and Uma Thurman also star in the film which is currently slated for theatrical release on July 6th. Interested?

I'm just talking about the poster design. http://www.impawards.com/2006/babel.html Should've clarified that at first. My bad 🙂 Still looking forward to the movie.

Have you seen the poster for a movie called Havoc. It came out before Babel. So, it looks like Babel ripped that one off. I would bet there are a lot of these poster designs roaming around out there.

Sounds like a good movie if Stone goes back to his roots. He has been striking out recently. Get back into the controversial tone we all know and love.
