Forget all those "most anticipated movies of 2013" lists — there's only one major motion picture event I can't wait to get my mind blown by, and that's Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers. Tween idols on a crime spree, James Franco channeling Riff Raff, the ATL Twins, and love for the pop powerhouse that was '00s-era Britney Spears... who can resist? Are we not human beings? Today Vulture's got the U.S. poster debut to tease the Spring Breakers marketing wave that's coming in the next few months, which will have me floating in a fluorescent fever of anticipation until March.
Mark. Your. Calendars.
As for the new U.S. poster, there's a decidedly more dangerous, leering sensibility here than in the previous Girls Gone Wild-party time materials and sneak peeks we've seen; the obscuring ski mask makes it so that you can't tell which Spring Breaker belongs to that nubile body posing provocatively in a camera flash in the dark, exactly, and how do you feel about that, you perv?
To paraphrase Godard: All you need for a movie is a girl in a Day-Glo bikini and a gun.
(Head to Vulture for the full high-res poster debut.)
If you aren't familiar, here's the synopsis:
Meanwhile, here's a more conventional second poster with cleavage and smiles that features the SB gang but also has weird googly Photoshopped James Franco eyes. (It's French, maybe they like that sort of thing?)
