The new red band Spring Breakers trailer is even crazier than the last one
With each successive trailer for SPRING BREAKERS, I find myself more and more intrigued by this crazy movie. Harmony Korine seems like an odd match with the subject of this film. Or maybe I was just expecting something along the lines of GUMMO or KIDS. When the first trailer came out, I thought this was going to be a more mainstream crime movie, but this latest red band trailer shows the most character development we have seen so far.
We now see that James Franco's character is not just some gangsta wannabe but rather a completely off the wall character who truly believes the life he leads is the "American Dream" while Selena Gomez appears to be the lone member of the four girls who realizes something about this life is not right. I mean, this movie has to have a sympathetic character, right?
Plot: Faith, Candy, Brit, and Cotty have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a college dorm and want to go on an adventure. Wishing to go to Florida for their vacation but lacking funds for it, they decide to rob a restaurant to finance their trip. While in Florida, they are arrested at a party for drugs and land in jail. A drug and arms dealer named Alien bails them out in order to hire them to do some prostitution work for him.
So this means in just over two weeks, James Franco will go from the family friendly OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL to this movie as a scumbag drug dealer criminal. Love him or hate him, the guy definitely does not pigeon-hole himself into one character type. Hopefully this will be a breakout for Gomez who is very likeable but needs to escape the Disney tween princess mold and show her range and ability.
