If you're ever seen that one movie "Kids" (or if you've seen the porno with Sun Doobie in it) you probably remember how shocking it was when you first saw it. A funny, trashy, and honest depiction of teenagers doing drugs, having sex and "wilin' out" in early 90s New York, the movie made waves when it was released in the early 90s, and it made as star out of director Harmony Korine, who made the movie at 22 and then proceeded to spend the last 18 years creating some really out-there arthouse stuff.
Why am I giving you a lecture on an obscure director? Because Korine is also responsible for "Spring Breakers," which stars Disney Channel alums Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, and which looks to be very, very different from what we originally thought when we first saw the photos of the stars in bikinis last year. Think more of a gritty narco-thriller deservedly making the rounds at movie festivals, with James Franco making an inspired turn as a rapper and real-life rapper Gucci Mane costarring as a gangster ("Ya'll wanna die tonight?"), and less of the bubblegum film you'd expect from two Disney Channel alums starring in a Spring Break movie.
Honestly, this looks batshit crazy and really, really fun. We're pumped for this to come out.
