Bikinis, Bad Girls, and James Franco in Cornrows: SPRING BREAKERS Trailer

Teenage girls in tiny bikinis jostle for screen time with James Franco in cornrows in the first trailer for Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, which is due out in the U.S. on March 22.

Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine also star in the film, which follows four friends who steal a car and rob a diner so they can escape to Florida for spring break. Franco plays a drug kingpin who befriends them.

Our own Ryland Aldrich was seduced by Spring Breakers:

In lesser hands, this could have ended up a drab morality tale or a wacky mess. Instead we have a raw and randy, yet also rather mature (in more ways than one) piece of cinema that's probably unlike anything you've seen before.

The film will have its U.S. Premiere at SXSW before opening theatrically. You can watch the U.S. trailer -- and/or the version with French subtitles -- below.

Franco for best actor, 2013.

The International trailer has by far the better music choice. Seems like always the US trailer is giving more away then it should be.

He's got my vote. This is going to be a career defining film for him. Seriously.

Mr. CavinJanuary 17, 2013 3:48 PM

My jaw dropped.

Looks awful. Skrillex? Why are we liking this one again folks?

Todd BrownJanuary 18, 2013 9:20 AM

Because it's amaaaaaaazing. They've cut the trailer to make it look like a straightforward, commercial film but it's really not. At all.

I suppose if you wanted to take the piss out of spring break co-ed culture, putting brostep in your trailer is simply due diligence.

Watched the international trailer, and for the first 30 seconds I thought it was Piranha 3DDD (and then James Franco grinned and started pulling guns).

Do people actually like this stuff? This type of junkie culture? Terrible.

Mr. CavinJanuary 18, 2013 10:35 PM

I guess I like it just as much as I like alien invasions, Hong Kong gangs, chainsaw murderers, world wars, hipster relationships, waterfront injustices, misogynist spies, and lots of other pretty terrible things.
