Ever since pictures began to leak from the seat of director Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, perverts everywhere have been rejoicing. Yesterday, the trailer for the film was released, featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, plus James Franco -- and yes rapper Gucci Mane -- in rare form.
Of course the only thing most people care about is Gomez, Hudgens, and her friends carousing in bikinis, a sort of homage to the Bikini Bandits phenomenon of the early '00s.
And with Korine's name on the film, he of Kids and Gummo fame, shit is going to be weird. Korine also cast his wife Rachel Korine as one of the law-breakin' spring breakers. Gomez, late of Justin Bieber fame, makes a promising showing in a spectacular orange top.
Franco's character looks more than a touch like rapper Riff Raff, and sounds a lot like Woody Harrelson in Natural Born Killers. If this whole "James Franco" thing doesn't work out for James Franco, he can always be Matthew McConaughey.
Breakers is due to hit theaters on March 22, just in time for your post-break hangover.
