Check out the first trailer for SPRING BREAKERS! James Franco channels his inner Drexl Spivey

At first glance, SPRING BREAKERS from writer / director Harmony Korine may look like just your average teen party movie, but the trailers show that there is much more going on here.  A few party girls want to go on a dream spring break trip, but money is the issue so they decide to rob a fast food restaurant (just pretend it’s a video game says one of the brilliant girls) and make their way down to party it out.  They get caught, arrested and then bailed out by Alien (James Franco doing his best Drexl Spivey (Gary Oldman in TRUE ROMANCE) impersonation) because he’s taken a liking to them.  The movie then turns to more guns, crime and, of course, bikinis.

I have to say, the movie does look rather intriguing and looks to be an image changer for a few former Disney gals (Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez).  Writer / Director Harmony Korine may not have a lot of big name projects under his belt, but this could be one that puts him on the map.  We shall see when this one hits theaters in a few months.

So check out the trailers below and let us know what you think in the comments below.  Does this one look like a bunch of fluff or is this a cleverly disguised crime flick that may surprise us all?


SPRING BREAKERS is directed by Harmony Korine and stars James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, Heather Morris and Gucci Mane.

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 (James 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.

SPRING BREAKERS is set to open in NY and LA on March 22, 2013 and will have a full release on March 29, 2013.
