The first trailer for “Savages,” starring Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively, will debut right here tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET, but be sure to check out our teaser if you can’t wait and need a small sneak peek. In “Savages,” Johnson and Kitsch play Ben and Chon, marijuana dealers and fellow boyfriends to their shared girlfriend, O, played by Lively. After the partners turn down a Mexican drug cartel, which wants in on their operation, the rival gang kidnaps O and demands a ransom. As you can see in the teaser for the trailer, Ben and Chon don’t exactly take the kidnapping lying down. They start shooting. The teaser should give you a general idea of what to expect from “Savages”: guns, sex and explosions. But you’ll have to wait until Thursday to see the entire trailer. The hazy, sunburned look of “Savages” comes from the imagination of iconic director Oliver Stone, and as he tends to do, the director rounded out his cast with familiar faces. Emile Hirsch, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro all co-star. “Savages” is based on the book of the same name by Don Winslow, who co-wrote the screenplay. Be sure to check back with MTV Movies Thursday at 1 p.m. ET for your exclusive first look at the first trailer for Oliver Stone’s “Savages.” Check out everything we’ve got on “Savages.” For breaking news, celebrity columns, humor and more — updated around the clock — visit
