At one time, it seemed inconceivable that enfant terrible Harmony Korine would do anything close to courting the mainstream, let alone shoot a picture with folks like James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson. But after the awesomely lo-fi audience provocation “Trash Humpers,” it seems kind of logical that Korine would make something to appeal to the folks who couldn’t make it to the end of that movie. And so: “Spring Breakers.” And get ready, because it’s gonna get wet.
The first trailer for the movie has arrived via MTV and after all the talk, buzz and numerous images of the young cast in bikinis….is this what you were expecting? Are you ready to roll with gold toothed, corn-rowed Franco? In case you forgot, the Oscar nominee and one time Oscar co-host plays Alien, who bails some bad girls out of jail and takes them under his wing. As for the rest, well, you get the idea. And with a score by Skrillex and Cliff Martinez, you probably have to be allergic to fun not to get anything out of this.
“Spring Breakers” lands in theaters in NY/LA on March 22nd, opens wide on March 29th and will hit the SXSW Film Festival. Watch below hte U.S. version and shorter interantional spot below.
