Trailer watch: Spring Breakers
90’s indie boy Harmony Korine is back and he’s got Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, James Franco, $40 million and the songs we all love to hate from Skrillex. At a glance, Spring Breakers seems to be the quintessential teenage summer blockbuster, but from the guy that brought us KIDS (1995), Gummo (1997) and Mister Lonely (2007) one can only expect to cringe and acknowledge the fact that Korine has proven to be a great storyteller, one that sometimes makes you want to look away. It appears this time he’s chosen Disney’s gems amongst other youngsters to show us the generation whose tagline is ‘You Only Live Once’. My question is, are the stars of the film aware of the possibility that they might be clowns in Korine’s circus?
Spring Breakers is set for release in Australia in May 2013. (You should probably NOT watch this trailer at work)
