Thesp will present thriller 'Savages'

MADRID — John Travolta will receive a Donostia Award at the 60th San Sebastian Film Festival, which takes place Sept. 21-29.

The thesp will attend the event to present his latest film, Oliver Stone’s thriller “Savages,” which screens Sept. 23 as part of fest’s Zabaltegi-Pearls section.

“Savages” opens in Spain Sept. 28, distributed by Universal Pictures International. Universal released the film Stateside on July 6 and it has cumed $47.3 million to date.

The fest will also give Donostia Awards to Ewan McGregor and Tommy Lee Jones, and the Special 60th anni Donostia Prize to Oliver Stone.
