The new red band Spring Breakers trailer is even crazier than the last one

Feb. 21, 2013by: Alex Maidy

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.

SPRING BREAKERS stars James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine. It opens in theaters on March 22, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Which girl is your favorite? I gotta go with Gomez. Hudgens looks a little worn out here.

People will hate this movie. But I am interested in it because of the absurdity. The worst we will get is a movie that is so bad that it is good (particularly because of the nudity and Franco's whiteboy gangster).

Wow!.. This whole time, up until I watched the trailer just now, I was under the impression this was a comedy. What a surprise. I was not expecting that lol. ...I didn't want to see this before, but now I want to see if Franco can pull this off.

Looks intriguing.

I'm not a huge Korine fan, but I do think he is an intelligent filmmaker and this appears to be his examination of modern youth culture, which I find interesting. Or maybe a treatise on what America has become in general. Also not a huge fan of Franco to this point but he looks like he brought his A game to this. I'll definitely be checking this one out.

I don't know why...

But I find this really disturbing in some way and I feel like it's going to be hard to watch. Probably because this seems like a fairly accurate portrayal of the current young generation (to a certain point), and I think that fact is really fucked up.

Korine never lets me down because I only ever expect him to deliver something so off the wall and subtley insightful that it sticks with me for days. Before he lets me down I am game for anything. As for this- I expect a slam of a commentary aimed at the younger generation. Just what I gather from articles and the two trailers.

Gomez has the most bored, empty look on her face in 99% of stills from this movie so far. Honestly, go back and look at old news and you will see all of her pictures look like they were actually in between shots

This looks so fun and original and If anyone knows who Harmony Korine is expect some shocking controversial content. I think Franco is bringing his A game in this too

I have to agree with Oscar

This trailer is better than the last one, but it does seem like it's trying too hard to be "shocking." It might be alright, the trailers haven't impressed me so far though.

Seems like it is trying too hard

There is a quote from Family Guy when Peter is watching Meg in a play. It describes how I feel about what we have seen of this project so far. It goes like this...

"You guys are doing nothing to suck me into the story. I am VERY aware I am watching a play right now."

It seems like it is trying too hard to be hardcore.
