There's finally an official trailer for Spring Breakers, the upcoming Harmony Korine movie we first heard about last year, when Riff Raff took credit for inspring James Franco's character Alien, a white rapper with cornrows, funny sunglasses and lots of tattoos. (Franco later denied this, but there's certainly a resemblance.) Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Harmony's wife Rachel Korine and Gucci Mane also star in the film. “It’s a white movie,” Gucci said in an interview last year. “I’m the only black person in the whole movie. It’s like a white Pulp Fiction. I’m the bad guy. That’s what they wanted me to play. I could have been the good guy if they wanted me to.” Get excited! The whole thing, featuring new original music from birthday candle-victim Skrillex, hits theaters in March.
