Universal Studios Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release a combo pack edition of acclaimed director Oliver Stone's Savages (2012), starring Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch and Blake Lively. The release, which includes an unrated edition of the film not shown in theaters, will be available for purchase on October 23rd.
Three-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone returns to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, based on Don Winslow's bestselling crime novel, one of The New York Times' Top 10 Books of 2010. Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson) and Chon (Kitsch) raise and sell some of the best marijuana ever developed, while sharing a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Their idyllic life is shattered when the Mexican Baja Cartel demands that the trio partner with them. But the cartel's merciless boss, Elena (Salma Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Benicio Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bonds among these three friends.

Day one for me! I am Oliver Stone fan, he changed my idea of films when I saw Platoon in the 6th grade forever. Lately his films have been ok not the greatness that he showed early on. I have not seen this mind you, but it looks up my alley. Plus it's a day before my birthday might be able to get someone to get it for me so I don't have to shell out the cash haha.
