Trailer of the Week (Jan 14th – Jan 20th)
Posted by Courtney Small
It has been a long time since I featured trailers on this site. Recently I have found myself paying far more attention to art of trailers than ever before. So instead of highlighting every trailer that is released in a given week, I will merely highlight the one that peaked my interest the most.
This week’s pick goes to Spring Breakers. While I detested Harmony Korine’s feature Gummo, I must admit that I am always curious when a new film of his pops up. After all, this is the man who wrote the script for Kids, a film I really enjoyed. The early buzz for Spring Breakers at TIFF was extremely positive, and the trailer seems to embrace the trashy esthetics that Korine is clearly going for. Spring Breakers looks to be the guilty pleasure movie of the year.
