The Oliver Stone directed Savages is one of the most anticipated films this summer. With an all-star Latino cast that includes Salma Hayek, Demian Bichir and Benicio Del Toro, this will surely be a hit among movie-goers.
"Helado is a psychopath that works for the Mexican drug cartel under Elena (Salma Hayek)," says Benicio on his character in this exclusive featurette. "He's her man up north, he's been up in Southern California for some time."
"Benicio del Toro being this rustic Mexican, cruel... he is stupendous," his co-star Demian Bichir says about Benicio as "Helado Lado."
Del Toro concludes the interview by relating the story of Savages to today's world: "It's relevant to the news of the day, drugs, the war on drugs. When you hear the accounts of the real people that have been involved in the drug war on both sides, brings the seriousness to the story."
Savages opens this weekend, starting July 6. Will you be watching?
