Rejoice! The first clip of James Franco in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" has arrived, and while the video doesn't highlight the ballyhooed Britney Spears sing-along Franco leads in the film, it is no less than LOLarious.
"This is my f--king dream, y'all. All this sh-t," Franco, playing a drug dealer named Alien in the film, shouts in the clip. "Look at my sh-t. I got shorts -- every f--king color. Designer t-shirts. Gold bullets. Motherf--king vampires."
Unfortunately there is no context to explain why Alien counts "motherf--king vampires" among his "sh-t."
"Spring Breakers" premiered at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday, but already seems to rank among recent cult favorites. Franco co-stars alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine; the actresses play four college girls who become part of a revenge plot after Alien (Franco) bails them out of jail.
As THR noted in its review, the film includes a scene where Franco sings the Spears classic "Everytime" while Hudgens waves a machine gun over her head.
Franco's character was supposedly inspired by Lil' Wayne and Riff Raff. See how he compares in the NSFW video above. "Spring Breakers" screens at the Toronto International Film Festival this week and, frankly, can't arrive in U.S. theaters soon enough.
