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.

Huh? We can't even remember hearing about this, but Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez are making a movie together called "Getaway." This is what they look like in it.

“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.

Disney pop princess Selena Gomez has earned a considerable amount of respect from us for allowing her film roles to stray pretty far away from her squeaky clean image that made her name. With a cameo role in the Eli Roth-starring earthquake thriller “Aftershock” and a revealing supporting part alongside James Franco in the Harmony Kormine-directed “Spring Breakers,” it would look as if the days of typical teenage dreck like “Monte Carlo” are at least partially in her rearview. Gomez is now set to star opposite Nat Wolff in a coming-of-age rock 'n roll comedy "Parental Guidance Suggested," based on the Ric Browde book “While I'm Dead...Feed the Dog,” which centers on a rock infused journey of a 16-year-old named Ric Thibault (Wolff) and his crush Nina Pennington (Gomez). It’s not exactly the ballsy material we were just priding her for taking part in, but she could do a lot worse. Dylan McDermott, Cary Elwes, and Austin Stowell will co-star.

So what exactly is Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" going to be? With a star-driven and somewhat random cast including James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and more, it seems like the wildly singular director is aiming for the mainstream. But then again, one can never discount Korine's prankster spirit, so who knows if this is just a bigger budget "Trash Humpers." Either way, everyone involved has been more than eager to show off what they've been up to, with a seemingly endless supply of stills and set pics making their way online. And the movie even had a ginormous billboard up at Cannes, the kind usually reserved for blockbusters. We're still not sure what to expect, but until we find out, here are more cheescake pics of the cast.

Harmony Korine has made movies with dudes fucking garbage, nuns jumping out of planes, and Die Antwoord riding around in wheelchairs, but nothing is quite like "Spring Breakers." Boasting a cast of young Hollywood babes -- and James Franco -- and (relatively speaking) as mainstream a plot as anything he's ever done, this might be the weirdest movie the director has ever made simply by nature of being totally unlike his previous work. And a bunch of images have been appearing online in the past few weeks, so we've rounded some of them up here -- but let's start right from the top.

It was well over a year ago that word first arrived that Eli Roth was lending his producing powers to a couple of genre flicks: "Clown" based on a fake movie trailer from commercial directors Jon Watts and Christopher D. Ford and "Aftershock," a high-octane horror-thriller set during the aftermath of the February 27, 2010 Chilean earthquake. And then, not much else was heard of since. Well, with buyers now headed to Germany for the Berlin Film Festival, one title already has several interested suitors fighting each other to snag the rights.
