I was highly skeptical of Spring Breakers for a number of reasons. It's directed by Harmony Korine, whose work I find beyond worthless. It's called Spring Breakers. It's got James Franco playing a character based on hip hop moron Riff Raff. It stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez. But then everybody I know who saw the film loved it. Like, was absolutely blown away by it. And it's produced by Megan Ellison, who is possibly the most important name in film today (she also produced Zero Dark Thirty and The Master).
Now i'm on board. I'm dying to see the film. And I'm willing to accept these posters, which seem ugly and lame, as pieces fitting in with the tone of a film that is knocking people out at every film festival.
I want to believe, Harmony. Give me a movie of yours I can finally enjoy.
Here are the posters, featuring Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and friends in bikinis.
