Spring Beak Bitches! Trailer for 'Spring Breakers' Proudly Waves its Freak Flag

Harmony Korine has never been about commercial appeal.  Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens have always been about commercial appeal.   Hooking up with a director like Korine would seem impossible, but yet the impossible has become reality… and Spring Breakers is the result.  I’ve often wondered what kind of movie this would turn out to be.  Would Korine settle into a career more vanilla?  Would Hudgens and Gomez shed that Disney image going real dark?  Well the answer is somewhere in between. 

And yeah, James Franco is in this as well…

 What do you think?  The freak flag element from the guy who gave us Trash Humpers is definitely there, but so is the element of making an edgy movie but with just enough edge so as not to scare off most of your potential audience.  The movie played at the Toronto Film Festival this past September and got some good, but not great, responses to it.   But that literally means nothing right now.   I can’t say I’ll see this movie when it comes out in March, as the trailer really did nothing for me.  It doesn’t look bad and Franco seems to be having fun with his Gary Oldman from True Romance impersonation but it also doesn’t seem to offer up anything that looks intriguing.  But that’s just one man's opinion.  I’m sure there are a slew of 14 and 15 year old boys with big crushes on Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens who will love this movie.

Spring Breakers opens on March 29th.
