Benicio Del Toro attends red carpet movie premier; Event Cinemas, Sydney, Australia...

 

Benicio Del Toro attends red carpet movie premier; Event Cinemas, Sydney, Australia...

 

 
 
 
Savages enjoyed its red carpet premiere in Sydney, Australia tonight.
 
Savages star Benicio Del Toro told media agency AAP that meeting real ex-drug cartel members was a similar feeling to climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
 
"You go in strapped and you go in protected in some ways but you don't want to get too goofy or something like that, or you might fall off the bridge. Or you might just end up chopped liver," Del Toro told the AAP agency..
 
Del Toro, who's in Australia to promote Savages, plays nasty Mexican cartel enforcer Lado in the movie.
 
It's been reported that Del Toro was the one who took director Oliver Stone to Mexico to meet some "heavies" - a piece of news he found surprising.
 
"I was the one with the connections?" he says.
 
"That's people that believe the characters that I play.
 
"No, actually we went down to Mexico, but I wasn't the one with the connections."
 
In any event the meeting was terrifying but invaluable to him and the cast.
 
"We met some people down there (in Mexico), we met some people in LA (Los Angeles) too, on both sides of this war on drugs, and it was very interesting, very informative for the preparation of the characters," he told AAP.
 
ABOUT SAVAGES:
 
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Taylor-Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—raising some of the best marijuana ever developed.  They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively).  Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
 
When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel.  And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and manoeuvres in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
