New 'Spring Breakers' Poster: A Girl And A Gun (And A Release Date!)

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.

Spring Breakers Harmony KorineSpring Breakers, which stars Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine as a foursome of coeds who decide to fund their spring break shenanigans by robbing a fast food restaurant, also reportedly has a release date of March 22 (NY/LA) via A24 Pictures.

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:

Spring Breakers French poster"SPRING BREAKERS tells the story of four sexy college girls as they plan to fund their spring break getaway by robbing a fast food joint. But that's only the beginning... At a motel room rager, fun reaches its legal limit and the girls are arrested and taken to jail. Hungover and clad only in bikinis, the girls appear before a judge but are bailed out unexpectedly by Alien (James Franco), an infamous local thug and amateur rapper who takes them under his wing and leads them on the wildest Spring Break trip in history. `Rough on the outside but with a soft soul on the inside, Alien wins over the hearts and dreams of the young Spring Breakers, and leads them on a Spring Break they never could have imagined."

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?)

    The shadowing on Selenita's arm makes it look uncomfortably anorexic. She should be featured on The Awkward Lean tumblr.

    Oh and is James Franco channeling AJ McLean from BSB?

      Franco is channeling this human:

        Actually, James Franco has always stated that he's channeling this guy called Dangeruss: who also stars in the movie Spring Breakers with Franco.

        However, for some bizarre reason Riff Raff can't seem to accept this and goes around telling the world that it's based on him 100%, which is not true. Even the director Harmony Korine stated in a recent interview that Franco's character is not based on Riff Raff. I wish Dangeruss would get more media attention in regards to his role that he played. Anyway, just goes to show what an awesome job Franco did to get a reaction from Riff Raff or any other star hoping Franco's character is based of them.

    Thanks for the new things you have disclosed in your writing. One thing I’d really like to discuss is that FSBO human relationships are built over time. By releasing yourself to the owners the first weekend break their FSBO will be announced, prior to masses start calling on Wednesday, you make a good association. By giving them instruments, educational materials, free accounts, and forms, you become an ally. If you take a personal fascination with them plus their predicament, you produce a solid connection that, on many occasions, pays off as soon as the owners opt with a realtor they know in addition to trust — preferably you actually.
