“There’s something wrong with your love story, baby.” If you have yet to hear that phrase, you’ve got to see the pulse-pounding trailer for Oliver Stone’s explosive new thriller, Savages, out July 6th. And while it’s still a month away, our friends at Universal hooked Made Man up with exclusive video morsels to tide you over: a five-part series in which Stone grills the speaker of those words, Elena (Salma Hayek) about some pretty juicy stuff. Like how she became the world’s hottest drug cartel head. And why her buddy Lado (Benicio Del Toro) kidnapped O (Blake Lively), lover of young pot growers Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and Ben (Aaron Johnson). But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Here’s Part 1.
Have we got your attention? There’s more. Four more exclusives with the lovely Missus Hayek spooled out over the next four Fridays. And more character studies, thanks to a few other fine sites:
Lado on huffingtonpost.com/entertainment
Chon on la-confidential-magazine.com
Ben on complex.com
O on askmen.com
And of course you can explore Savage’s official site and watch that trailer on YouTube. Then check back here in a week to see what Elena says next. Judging from what we’ve seen so far, it’s gonna be good.
