Marilyn Manson & Homeless-Looking Haromny Korine: Freaky Standouts @ Spring Breakers L.A. Premiere

First of all, did “Spring Breakers” writer & director Harmony Korine forget that there was a premiere last night or what b/c he was pimping a very cracked-out-homeless look—almost like he didn’t sleep for the past week. Then again, he’s been hitting screenings for this thing since last fall (first one was at the Venice Film Festival last September).

As for Marilyn Manson, we all know he has a thing for extremely young & pasty starlets, so it’s anybody’s guess who he took home last night. If Ashley Benson wasn’t tea-bagging James Franco these days, she’d be a shoe-in for somebody like Marilyn Manson—same goes for the somewhat pasty Rachel Korine. The 44-year-old rocker has a history of not giving a shit about who’s married or in a relationship b/c ultimately he ends up sleeping with whoever he has his eyes on. If Selena wants to really give a F-You to Justin & everyone else, there’s no better way to do it than spend a night with Marilyn Manson. Same goes for Miley Cyrus.

UPDATE: As the commenter below noted, Marilyn Manson was in attendance with his latest temporary girlfriend Lindsay Usich

Less than two weeks until Spring Breakers hits theaters nationwide; for those in NYC and LA, look for it in limited release this Friday. The girls minus Vanessa Hudgens hit up SXSW 2013 in Austin for a screening of the film and once again, Rachel Korine comes up short to Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson. SXSW 2013 continues through March 17th. And once again, check out the juicy Spring Breakers category to get you ready for release!

Check out a behind-the-scenes from the folks over at Vice:

“Spring Breakers” Cast ALMOST Upstaged By Micaela Schaefer @ German Premiere

All I gotta say is that the girls are really lucky Michaela Schaefer actually decided to wear clothes to the premiere b/c let’s face it, she’s more woman than all three chicks combined. Sure she’s also more skanky than all-three combined (that’s debatable), but let’s not go there.

And also, what the hell happened to the director Harmony Korine’s wife Rachel following yesterday’s “Spring Breakers” premiere in Paris? It appears either he had to tell her to sit out this premiere or she had other engagements (highly doubtful it’s the latter), so we hope everything is going well with the couple. Don’t know about V-Hudge & Selena, but we’re pretty sure Harmony got a piece of Ashley during this entire process, especially if you consider all all the rumors flying around about Ash’s carefree attitude when it comes to banging her way through Hollywood.

The premiere was held at CineStar movie theater in Potsdamer Platz square in Berlin. Anybody else a little surprised that this film is getting so much premiere-love? I find it unbelievable, but considering the film’s low budget, I’m going to assume the girls are doing Harmony a big favor & doing it all for free.

It’s here folks, after a build up of almost one year since the first shots of these lovely ladies on location, Spring Breakers is about ready for it’s worldwide release. Ashley Benson (Brit), Selena Gomez (Faith), Vanessa Hudgens (Candy), and Rachel Korine (Cotty) are in Paris for the premiere, even though the film already made its debut at last year’s Venice Film Festival. Anyway, enough with the talking because you all know what the film is about so let’s get to the plot, trailer, and poll before you hit up the Gallery to view more of your favorite ladies (sorry if Rachel is your favorite… guess the photographers had less love for her). Hit up the Spring Breakers website and be sure to check out all the juicy gratuitous bikini filming from the start in our Spring Breakers category.

Faith, Candy, Brit, and Cotty have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a college dorm and want to go on an adventure. Wishing to go to Florida for their vacation but lacking funds for it, they decide to rob a restaurant to finance their trip. While in Florida, they are arrested at a party for drugs and land in jail. A drug and arms dealer named Alien bails them out in order to hire them to do some prostitution work for him. [Wiki]

“Spring Breakers” Red Carpet Premiere @ Venice Film Festival

As we said in our earlier posts, the Harmony Korine’s written & directed “Spring Breakers” made a big splash at the Venice Film Festival earlier this evening (Wednesday, September 5) as the film’s sexy cast hit the red carpet premiere in full-on Oscar-esque glamour. We were curious what these girls would wear after looking great earlier in the day at the photocall.

Hollywood Reporter reviewed the film, so here’s an excerpt:

Even by the elastic measure of James Franco’s unpredictable career, the actor gives one of his more bizarre performances in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. Playing a Florida white-trash gangsta with beaded cornrows and a gleaming mouthful of metal, he’s a cross between Bo Derek in 10 and Richard Kiel in Moonraker. At one point he sits poolside at a cheesy white grand piano and sings a Britney Spears ballad while three co-eds in DTF pants and pink ski masks do an impromptu dance routine with AK-47s.

Sounds good? Well, like the film as a whole, Franco’s borderline parodistic performance is interesting only up to a point. It may be one of Korine’s more conventional narratives, but this is basically a porn-pulp snort of derision at the American Dream and the youthful search for self, packaged as Beach Blanket Bingo on acid. It has hypnotic visual style and a dense, driving soundscape. But it’s also too monotonous and thematically empty to be seriously provocative.

More than by Franco, the film’s profile will be boosted by the presence of former Disney Channel cuties Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens among all the bong-hitting, boozing, coke-snorting, breast-baring, grinding bodies. “Poetry in motion” is how Franco’s drug-dealing rapper Alien describes the crowd at a beach beer blast. “Bikinis and big booties, y’all. That’s what life is about.” [Continue reading…]

Excuse the flood of “Spring Breakers” related photos, but the storm will soon pass once the premiere goes down later this evening at the Venice Film Festival. We’re still pretty surprised that festival organizers chose to screen this film, but hey, if youthful sex sells, it sells. Gotta stay with the times, right? We doubt it’ll take home the Golden Lion (the top prize at the festival), but it’ll definitely get a lot of press out of the whole thing.

“Spring Breakers” is scheduled to hit theaters March 5, 2013, so if you wanna watch it early, pull some strings & get your ass to Venice for the screening in a couple hours. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, James Franco & the writer & director’s wifie Rachel Korine, we have a feeling it’ll make a nice splash in theaters next year. Believe it or not, but Emma Roberts was in the original lineup before she dropped out in early 2012 due to “creative differences that couldn’t be resolved” (maybe it was a nude or lesbian scene?). She was subsequently replaced by Ashley Benson, who in our opinion, is the better/hotter option of the two chicks.

Here’s some plot action:

The four girls Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Faith (Selena Gomez), Brit (Ashley Benson), and Cotty (Rachel Korine) are best friends since grade school. They live together in a college dorm and want to go on an adventure.

For spring break the four girls hit Florida to celebrate their vacation. But they get into a lot of trouble after they run out of money and decide to rob a restaurant. Therefore they land in jail, later Alien a drug and arms dealer (James Franco) bails them out and wants them to do some dirty work. Source
