Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and James Franco star in the new Spring Breakers trailer
Admittedly, I’m getting sick of writing about SPRING BREAKERS, only because I don’t feel like there’s much to say about the film. Once you get past the idea of four young girls in bikinis on Spring Break that team up with a drug dealer to do bad things, there’s really not much else to talk about. I have hopes that director Harmony Korine will do more with her talented young cast than just put them in bikinis and try and sell tickets to pre-teen boys, but the trailers don’t give me a whole lot of hope. However, of all the disturbing movies about troubled teens, Korine’s first writing effort, KIDS, still resonates with me to this day. So he has precedent when it comes to depicting troubled youth.
SPRING BREAKERS is set to star Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine as the four “breakers” and a cornrowed James Franco as the drug dealer that helps them out and tries to convince them to kill his competition. The film hits just in time for, you guessed it, Spring Break, opening everywhere on March 29th and in New York and Los Angeles on March 22nd.
