The master of conspiracy theories trades international cover-ups for a sweaty, smoky look at drug cartels, kidnapping and loyalty in the first trailer for Savages.

Oliver Stone hits on something close to Traffic, and his own sensationalistic 1994 tour-de-force Natural Born Killers, telling the story of two bestie pot growers who get mixed up with a powerful Mexican drug stronghold when they refuse to go into business with them from the book by Don Winslow.

Leggy blond bombshell Blake Lively narrates and stars as O, the girlfriend that enforcer Chon (Taylor Kitsch) and hippie businessman Ben (a dreadlocked Aaron Johnson) share, and it's the three of them against the world, all beach volleyball and hot tubs until, as Lively puts it, "things got so out of control."

Savages also features an icy, but still crazy-hot Salma Hayek as the drug matriarch, Benicio Del Toro as the muscle, John Travolta as the federal agent on the case and includes Emile Hirsch, Demián Bichir and Uma Thurman.

We've got the EXCLUSIVE Savages trailer so see for yourself!
