'Savages' trailer: Blake Lively gets down and dirty with Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson
The first trailer for July's anti-blockbuster was just released, and oh boy is this ever some popcorn flick counter-programming. The cast is impressive -- John Travolta, Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro also star, just to name a few boldfaced names -- and the film, which features pot growers Kitsch and Johnson trying to get back their mutual girlfriend after she's kidnapped as retribution for a business deal, looks super intense.
Basically, Lively continues to break out of her Serena Van Der Woodsen shell -- this is a way grittier, dramatic role than anything she's done on TV. Think "The Town," not "Gossip Girl." Her promise in "The Town" was evident, so "Savages" could very well be her breakout movie as a serious actress. Check out the trailer -- do you agree?
