Bikinis, guns, and James Franco run rampant in two new trailers for Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers

Jan. 17, 2013by: Paul Shirey

We've been inundated with images from Harmony Korine's SPRING BREAKERS for months now, as well as a clip featuring James Franco as a drug dealer named Alien interacting with four young, impressionable, tenacious, and violent bikini-clad girls in the form of Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgins, and Rachel Korine.  Now, the wait for a proper look at the film has arrived with not one, but two different trailers, each with similar levels of crazy.  I still don't know exactly what kind of movie this will be, but hot damn, bikinis, guns, Franco, club music, sports cars, and did I mention bikinis?  I'm all in, baby.

Here's the U.S. Trailer:

Here's the synopsis:

Four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work.

Dare I say, this actually looks like it will have some depth to it (I know, i know, sounds nuts) as it looks more like a cautionary tale, rather than a straight up exploitation film.  Either way, my intrigue knows no limits and I look forward to seeing an over-the-top performance from Franco and four girls go past the point of no return, while wearing bikinis, masks, and clutching automatic weapons.

SPRING BREAKERS opens March 29, 2013.

due to my Canadian location, I was not able to see the US trailer, however, the international trailer I did get to see. Franco is really selling the part, and something about these former Disney stars in bikinis is pretty hot.

Thoughts:

I watched the international trailer before the US one. The international one made me want to see this film, the US one turned me off it. Amazing how much better the int. trailer is. Fuckin US trailer has Skrillex, plus everyone repeating "spring break... spring break... spring break..." every 5 seconds. Also gave away the start of the movie.
Despite all that, will probably catch it on video just to see Franco doing his best Drexel Spivey impression.

That actually looks way more entertaining than I thought it was going to be. Harmony Korine is a lucky man, his wife (the pink haired Spring Breaker) is one attractive lady!

If you don't like Skrillex or people saying "Spring Break" over and over then you're gonna HATE this movie.

Franco

To any of the doubters, Franco is absolutely fantastic in this, especially when you see the full scope of his character. Easily one of his best if not THE best performance of his career. This has "cult movie" written all over it.

This looks like shit. Reminds me how much I hate vapid sluts like these characters. Even if they were naked it wouldn't make it worthwhile to spend time with such stupid hos.

Caught this at TIFF. To state it briefly, it's great... Franco's the best... and if one thing's for sure it's that this is going to shock a lot of people, even those who think they know what to expect (even as a Korine fan, I'm one of those people).

The people who don't get this have obviously never seen a Harmony Korine film. He loves to f*ck with his audiences. This film isn't going to take itself half as seriously as most of the people who see this trailer. It's a big f*ck you to all of the superficial teenyboppers. Awesome indeed.

Is it just me or...

..was that some of the worst acting on James Franco's part? Both those trailers were just awkward in a bad way. This whole movie looks like it's trying too hard to be hardcore and gritty while at the same time being sexy and all whacko with the dubstep music. Not sure about you guys, but this sort of cheesy, pseudo-edgy stuff doesn't interest me one bit.

As a fan of Kids & Gummo I'm curious about this. Trailers look fun & sexy. BTS must have been a giant acid orgy.

Was not expecting this. I never looked into this movie but I was expecting girls do something or go somewhere on spring break and as a result unsavory characters are looking for them and the girls must fight for there lives: some bullshit cliche plot. Now this was all kinds of crazy and I am a bit interested.
