While the poster is moody and dreamlike, the new Red Band trailer is anything but. Brash, laced with foul language and revved to the max, the promo sells “Tangerine” as a candy-colored adrenaline rush, akin to Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” in tone and style.

Here’s Magnolia’s official synopsis for “Tangerine”: It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block. Upon hearing that her pimp boyfriend (James Ransone) hasn’t been faithful during the 28 days she was locked up, the working girl and her best friend, Alexandra (newcomer Mya Taylor), embark on a mission to get to the bottom of the scandalous rumor. Their rip-roaring odyssey leads them through various subcultures of Los Angeles, including an Armenian family dealing with their own repercussions of infidelity.
Watch the trailer above. Magnolia opens the comedy on July 10 in select theaters.
