With its March 22nd release just around the corner, the second trailer for Harmony Korine’s highly anticipated “Spring Breakers” has dropped and it’s not going to do much to convert anyone who wasn’t instantly taken by the first.
While there isn’t much new footage, it still looks pretty bonkers: Bright colors, tiny bathing suits, and constant “y’alls” spewed by James Franco, who appears to be having the time of his life as small-time rapper thug Alien, who’s something like a mash-up of Gary Oldman in “True Romance” and L’il Wayne with a southern drawl.
The film also features Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens alongside Ashley Benson and Korine’s wife, Rachel Korine, as young spring breakers who fall under Alien’s spell. “Breakers” has been getting pretty consistent rave reviews since it premiered in Venice last semester. (It’s currently got a B+ from 24 critics on Criticwire.)
