First Trailer for SPRING BREAKERS

When first hearing rumblings of Spring Breakers and who it starred I counted it out as a tween-centered film but didn't realize it was directed by Harmony Korine who has made other features known as Mister Lonely and Trash Humpers along with several short films. Now, that doesn't sound along the lines of what I expected at all and the first trailer clearly leaves the same effect if you go in with the expectations this will be a standard Selena Gomez/Vanessa Hudgens vehicle. The film actually looks to be a pretty funny, dark comedy with some out there sequences and strong capacity for violence. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and received generally good reviews with much of the praise going to James Franco for his strange embodiment of a drug dealer known as Alien. Franco is at his best when he goes out on a limb and takes on strange material such as this so I look forward to seeing how it all turns out. The film stars Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as a group of girls who go to some pretty extravagant lengths to keep their spring break going becoming even more disturbing when they encounter Alien who, in his own words, has, "done about every illegal activity under the sun." You can see for yourself just how crazy these girls spring break gets when the movie opens March 22nd. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.


Synopsis:SPRING BREAKERS tells the story of four sexy college girls as they plan to fund their spring break getaway by burglarizing a fast food shack. But that’s only the beginning… At a motel room rager, fun reaches its legal limit and the girls are arrested and taken to jail. Hungover and clad only in bikinis, the girls appear before a judge but are bailed out unexpectedly by Alien (Franco), an infamous local thug who takes them under his wing and leads them on the wildest Spring Break trip in history. Rough on the outside but with a soft spot inside, Alien wins over the hearts of the young Spring Breakers, and leads them on a Spring Break they never could have imagined.
