    Watch: 'Spring Breakers' Featurette Plus New Poster & Cahiers Du Cinema Cover

    You can trust us on this one, folks; Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” is going to comfortably be the highest grossing film of the director’s career to date. In fact, if we had to go out on a limb, we’d say that he’s unlikely to ever match it. The film will go in...
