This week: Pixar churns out another animated blockbuster with "Brave," featuring the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Waters, Robbie Coltrane, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and many more.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Don Winslow, it follows two upwardly mobile young pot dealers played by Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as they attempt to rescue their shared polyamorous girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) from a mean old Mexican drug cartel. Salma Hayek, John Travolta, and Benicio Del Toro will help spread some of the glorious mayhem. Get More »
Glamor never seemed so rough and rugged.
Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek and other usually refined and cultured types (though not an absent Aaron Johnson, who's probably away on his honeymoon) embraced their primal instincts on the red carpet at the premiere of "Savages," a film that hopefully marks the return of the wild, fiercely creative Oliver Stone that's been somewhat dormant since 1997's "U Turn." Enough with the "Wall Street" sequels — it's time to return to "Natural Born Killers" kind of territory!
Get your hopes up with our collection of pics from the premiere and join the "Savages" in theaters on July 6.
What do you get when you put one "Gossip Girl" beauty and one "Friday Night Lights" hottie together in bed on screen? A whole lot of awkward, apparently. We know; it's hard to believe, but according to Taylor Kitch, it's true.
The Canadian thesp got all cozy like with Blake Lively in Oliver Stone's latest, "Savages," which hits theaters July 6, but when asked about their more intimate scenes, he told reporters, "It's very awkward to do, you know, and I was just glad it was over with, to be honest. And it's such a big part of [my character] and who he is, and that's how you meet him. So it's a pretty intense reveal, no pun intended." Get More »
Andy Warhol once famously said that in the future, every movie will have a 15 second teaser trailer. But since 15 seconds of fame just wasn't quite enough for "Savages," MTV has just followed up yesterday's explosive tease with the full length trailer.
Get ready for a shock to the system, because judging by this incendiary new clip, Oliver Stone has turned out one of his sharpest films in years. Get More »
Considering "Savages" features one of the coolest casts in recent memory (Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Emile Hirsch, Salma Hayek, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Benicio del Toro, etc.), you wouldn't think that an innovative director like Oliver Stone wouldn't have any trouble crafting a trailer that shows off the film's highlights.

It's hard to fathom that "Scarface" -- a gangster movie that has become an iconic inspiration to rappers everywhere -- was maligned during its theatrical release in 1983 for its glorification of violence and unapologetic profanity, the very things that make it the ultimate cult classic.
Directed by Brian De Palma with a script by Oliver Stone, this remake of the 1932 film of the same name is really a twisted look at the American Dream and how out-of-control greed and corruption pervert that dream into one man's waking nightmare. Get More »
Why doesn't Oliver Stone just cast everyone in Hollywood in his new movie at this point?
Mia Maestro is the latest -- though likely not the last -- addition to the cast of Stone's crime thriller, "Savages," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Maestro joins one of the most impressive ensembles in quite some time, which includes John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Blake Lively, Uma Thurman, Emilie Hirsch, Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek, Taylor Kitsch and Joel David Moore. Get More »
If there was every any question that Oliver Stone is a man who gets what (and who) he wants, the quickly growing, star-studded cast list of his latest film will put those doubts to rest.

He joins a cast that includes Blake Lively, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro, Uma Thurman, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson. Get More »
Long before the "Two and a Half Men" fallout and Charlie Sheen's reactionary touring carnival, Sheen was already "winning" as Chris Taylor -- a young American who drops out of college for combat duty in Vietnam -- in Oliver Stone's acclaimed "Platoon," which arrives on Blu-ray for the first time on May 24.
The movie won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, and is disturbingly realistic because it is based on Stone's real-life experiences during the Vietnam War. Get More »
