Trailer of the Week (Jan 14th – Jan 20th)


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.

  1. This film looks super-ridiculous yet I wanna see it.

  2. A friend of mine recently asked me: "If Harmony Korine wasn't directing Spring Breakers, would you be remotely interested in seeing it?"

    My response: "Not at all, but the same can be said for a lot of movies."

    So basically, yeah, this looks nuts, and I can't wait.

    1. People sometimes forget how much of an impact a director can make on a film. This could have easily been a straight to DVD type of film in the hands of someone else. Yet you know Korine will be bringing something unique to the film.
