I have no idea what to really expect from this upcoming film, “Spring Breakers.” The film from A24 and Annapurna Pictures is written and directed by Harmony Korine stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine and James Franco. The official description of the film is that it’s like “‘Scarface’ meets Britney Spears.” That description only raises more questions than it answers.

Just how much shooting will there be in this film, especially since it’s starring one ex-Disney Channel star and another that Disney still has quite a strong hold on? What is Franco’s role in all of this? The big question is if the age group that usually goes on Spring Break will actually go see the movie? All these questions and more will be answered March 22.

Take a look at the crazy poster below and see if you’re ready for what looks like an insane blacklight poster of a film. Now, it sounds like I’m talking harsh about it, but I’m genuinely curious. It’s got enough oddness about it that it could become the sleeper hit of this spring.

What do you think about the film? Are you interested to see how teenagers are going to be involved in this potentially bloody film? Give your opinions in the comments section below.
