It looks like "The Hunger Games" pals Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth are eager to spend their time away from the YA franchise together as well. Future bromance? We'll see, but this project does sound interesting. The pair will star in the revenge western "By Way Of Helena."

This will make you feel old: it has been 18 years since Harmony Korine wrote “Kids” at the age of 21, with the Larry Clark-directed film proving to be something of a firecracker in the midst of mid-'90s indie cinema, by turns controversial, seedy, and honest. Korine made his own directorial debut with 1998’s “Gummo,” and over the last 15 or so years has made films that (with the possible exception of “Mister Lonely”), push aesthetic and critical boundaries further and further, culminating in 2009’s “Trash Humpers,” a film shot on a VHS camcorder, featuring a cast in old-people masks generally trying to provoke the audience into walking out. So where could he possibly go from there?

In what was easily one of the most anticipated films of SXSW, based on the wildness factor alone, Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" wasn't so much unspooled as unleashed on audiences in Austin last night. And while reaction was swift as the credits rolled, and discussion will continue about where this candy colored movie will fit in the director's ouevre, as we made clear in our review from Venice, "a piece of pop art."

Picking up coverage everywhere from EW to Cahier du Cinema, Harmony Korine's “Spring Breakers” finally opens in theaters this month, and while the promo efforts are perhaps getting to be just a few clips away from overkill at this point, we've got a quick new one as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the cast and crew's Miami exploits.

You can trust us on this one, folks; Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” is going to comfortably be the highest grossing film of the director’s career to date. In fact, if we had to go out on a limb, we’d say that he’s unlikely to ever match it. The film will go into limited release on March 15th a week before it goes wide, it's secured distribution in most major European and Antipodean territories over the next few months, and it’s not exactly the hardest product to market. Images from the film stick out like a sore, fluorescent thumb whenever they’re posted online, and any film that heavily features a headline-attracting pop starlet and the former star of a massively successful Disney franchise clad in skimpy bikinis is going to have a sizable built-in audience.

For the past few months we've been eating a steady diet of awards season fare, glossy blockbusters and studio throwaways. But soon the Oscars will be over, and we'll be needing some kind of cinematic release. So, it's a good thing that Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" is right around the corner, and it's an even better thing that it looks brilliantly bonkers.

“I’m tired of seeing the same thing every single day...there’s more than just Spring break,” Selena Gomez laments in Harmony Korine’s latest feature. “It’s your chance to see something different.” The rather orthodox (well at least for Korine), “Spring Breakers,” which premiered in Venice last week (read our review here), makes its North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this week. In our review we called the picture a "semi-conventional genre flick and a future cult favorite.”

James Franco in dreadlocks! Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine all sweaty and half dressed! A Florida-set crime romp! Given all the ingredients for it to be potentially batshit crazy, the first clip to make its way online from Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" is relatively normal.

So is Harmony Korine reaching for the mainstream, or is this all just a ruse to get tweens to watch "Trash Humpers"? Whatever it is, we can't wait to find out. As you might know, Korine is currently ramping up to start filming "Spring Breakers," a road trip comedy of sorts that has an improbable cast that includes wholesome Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco (Emma Roberts recently dropped out). Well, one more unlikely name has come aboard.
