Following yesterday’s all-to-brief tease for Oliver Stone‘s Savages, the first full theatrical trailer has arrived. And it looks like the director is getting back to his Natural Born Killers days, as this looks like something straight out of the ’90s. The visuals drenched with vibrant colors, the over-the-top characters and fairly ridiculous looking action scenes point to this either being a heck of a fun time at the theaters this summer or a misfire. But it’s hard to fault the man for going bold, after his dull Wall Street sequel. Based on Don Winslow’s novel about drug cartels, the film stars Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Demian Bichir, Salma Hayek, Joel David Moore and Emile Hirsch. Check out the full trailer below via MTV.
