Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens. What do they all have in common? No, it's not just that they were all Disney starlets at one point or another. In fact, they're all breaking out of the House of Mouse with the sure-to-be-insane (if not strange and/or uncomfortable) film, Spring Breakers.
Along with actress Rachel Korine, the trio play bored and miserable bikini-clad teens who get locked up after knocking a restaurant to fund their spring break trip, only to be busted out by a drug-dealing James Franco in all K-Fed gear.
Given the sedated look of the first clip, in which a jail-cell-dwelling Gomez drawls, "Everybody's miserable here because everybody sees the same things," don't count on this film to be PG-13.
If you've seen any of director Harmony Korine's past work, you could guess this probably won't be your typical coming-of-age flick. The director has a knack for batshit crazy scenes and oddball characters who don't seem like they exist in the same world you live in, yet are grounded in a stark reality.
The film will debut at the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Aug. 29 to Sep. 8, before making its way to the Toronto Film Festival just three days after. Hopefully, a distributor picks up the film ASAP so we can finally get a release date to count down to.
