Pot growers Ben and Chon face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend.

Sounds interesting. Also has Aaron Johnson from Kick-Ass in there. Great cast.

It was a helluva book -- arguably my favorite crime fiction novel last year. Curious to see how the movie turns out. Strong cast

That's a really strong cast. I'd love to see Travolta do something good again.

Really hoping this is a return to form for Oliver Stone.

Quick 15 second look, has potential.

They should release this in the Fall, not the summer, or this might be the third strike against Taylor Kitsch.

Only 15 seconds? I'll wait for the 30 second preview of the preview before I judge.

...15 seconds. I can't say shit off of that except that it's shot well at the very least.

Gives too much of the plot away. I feel like I've already seen the film. I wish they had just released a
5 second clip.

They should have released a 5 second preview of the 15 second clip.

I would prefer a 2 second teaser of the 5 second preview of the 15 second clip.

As long as Oliver Stone manages to keep himself in check with his film making style, this could be decent.

Judging from that trailer, I'm in!

This looks like it could be really good. Plus, I used to live in Laguna Beach, so that's kinda cool. And Lively is a... lively piece of ass.

Well this is the first Stone movie I've ever wanted to see in a theater as it was to be released. Great cast for sure. Looks badass.

Looks pretty badass.

Frankly, I'm shocked that Taylor Kitsch has 3 movies out this year.

Travolta would be the only reason I'd see this. This kind of film just doesn't do much for me these days. (never did actually)

Any early word on this film? I have a Fandango code that expires on June 30 and was thinking about pre-booking this film. Thanks.

Yeah, why no conversation about this? Haven't you all seen the constant bombardment of tv spots over and over again?

I think I'll pass unless this gets stellar reviews.

Te ads killed any interest I could have in this. I'll pass.
