‘Spring Breakers’ Trailer Treats Bikini-Clad Crime Like a Video Game

By  · Published on January 17th, 2013

There’s finally a trailer for Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, proving that it wasn’t just an elaborate hoax to turn paparazzi-style beach photos into a development story while watching media outlets figure out the best way to talk about girls in swimwear as if it was the greatest, sluttiest sin they could ever commit.

Of course, since the movie isn’t out yet, that’s still a possibility. Every film festival audience is in on it.

As if we haven’t been talking about it since what seems like the original spring break, the film stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Amber Benson and Rachel Korine in a tale of young women looking for excitement, robbing a restaurant, going to jail and getting bailed out by James Franco with a platinum grill.

In other words, it’s America shoved into a projector, and it’s a good thing the full trailer is finally here because it does more to make the movie look exciting than any of the faux-titillating screen shots could:

Spring Breakers is out in limited theaters in March.

Spring break forever, bitches.
