Watch: First Footage of Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers'

"I'm so tired of seeing the same thing every single day."

Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is one of only a handful of films to compete at the Venice Film Festival, which began today. Despite previous production stills suggesting the film would be a light-hearted comedy based around James Franco being shirtless and resembling Kevin Federline, judging from the trailer it's safe to say this will be a Very Serious and Poignant cinematic work. Plus, you know, it's by Harmony Korine. And double plus, it's in the company of past Golden Lion winners — Sofia Coppola's Somewhere in 2010, Darron Aronofsky's The Wrestler in 2008 and Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain in 2005. Spring Breakers will screen at the Venice Film Festival on September 4, and also stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez.
