Hello There! This is Adam Frazier and you are listening to Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of Doom! As always I’m joined by the Ann Lewis to my Alex J. Murphy, David Allen… and ladies and gentlemen, he has numerous concerns spread across this state and many wells flowing at many thousand barrels per day – he likes to think of himself as an oilman… producer Tim Grant.
Today on the Show: We’ll discuss Harmony Korine‘s latest film, Spring Breakers, and boot-up the Geek-O-Matic TeleFax for all the latest news on James Mangold‘s The Wolverine, and Jonathan Liebsman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. We’ll also play The Sequel Game – where two men must make up sequels to classic films on the spot to appease The Mighty Tu’Challa.
Spring Breakers Director: Harmony Korine Screenwriter: Harmony Korine Cast: James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, Gucci Mane
“Pretend like it’s a video game…”
Holy. Shit. Throw Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers and Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive into a blender with ice and add a few gallons of bottom shelf booze and you’ve got the cinematic mindfuck that is Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers.
No offense to Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, but Spring Breakers felt like the real “event” film of the festival this year. Korine’s dangerous, hypnotic cocktail of self-indulgence is a shallow study of shallow things.
A new international red-band trailer for Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers had debuted online. Check out the new trailer here below.
Spring Breakers centers on four young college girls (Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine) who rob a liquor store so that they can experience Spring Break in MTV fashion. After being apprehended by the authorities, a sleazy rapper named Alien (James Franco) bails them out and promises to keep the party going just as long as they use the very talents that got them in trouble in the first place.
This new trailer doesn’t offer too much, if anything the first trailer one set the bar pretty high. There are a couple of scenes where drug use, vulgar language, and violence is more prevalent than its predecessor, but I suspect that they are saving the best for the full film. Let’s not forget the fact that there’s sex in this film too, as the movie is set during Spring Break after all.
Strap in, kids! Here’s your first look at the 2013 SXSW Film Features Lineup: 109 films, including 69 world premieres, 14 North American and 5 United States premieres. Amazingly enough, 68 of these titles are from first-time filmmakers.

Spring break is the one thing the partying college student looks forward to in their academic life. But how far would one person go to get away from the laptops and textbooks? Well Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers will answer that question. The film centers on four college students (played by Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, and Selena Gomez) who rob a local liquor store to get enough money to celebrate spring break like any college student. After the law apprehends them, a rapper who goes by the name Alien (James Franco) bails them out and promises them to keep the party life going on the condition that they keep committing crimes.
Hit the jump to see the trailers – yes there are two of them – for Spring Breakers.
