Watch: Sex, Drugs and Dubstep?

Back in June 2012 we told you our bro (step) long haired (burning – bottom video) man Skrillex was going to be doing the score for Spring Breakers. In what could be considered a ‘perve’ worthy horror/adventure film, we present the incredibly cheesy trailer featuring 4 good looking babes that seem to be permanently in bikinis. What was the plot line to the story of the movie? I don’t know because the brightly coloured bikinis covering the actors bulging assets was too much of a distraction. So if you want to see a few fake boobs and butts and listen to Skrillex, watch The Kardashians or go take a look at this movie.

It’s a magical thing when the worlds of electronic music and cinema come together, and in this case it looks more like a head on collision. Directed by indie prodigy Harmony Korine (KidsGummo), Spring Breakers is a soon-to-be cult favorite.

This is yet another example of how the omniscient Skrillex (or Skrilleypoo, as some affectionately call him) continues to bring his wacky version of dubstep to more mainstream heights at every opportunity. He also recently worked on the soundtrack for Disney’s animated film Wreck-it Ralph, although his in-your-face style is put to a considerably more explicit plotline in Korine’s newest commentary on youth culture. In a nutshell, four college girls determined to rage rob a restaurant and get mixed in with a drug and arms dealer — nail biter for sure.

Korine (who inspired the musical director to recruit Skrill) explains his vision of “mimicing” music to create his mise-en-scène: “My idea for the film is more music-based than cinema-based. Music now is mostly loop and sample-based. A lot of stuff I like is more tracey and physical. I was hoping to develop a film style with this movie that could mimic that in some way. That’s where the liquid narrative comes from, this boozy-jazzy thing.”

The phrase “boozy” definitely comes to mind while watching the trailer — along with “white girl thug life” and “oops I did it again.” But who wouldn’t pay money to watch James Franco decked out in corn rows, a grill and a neck tattoo play opposite Gucci Mane, with “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” the classic theme song of our dubstepping-don’t-give-a-fuck generation playing in the background.

Due out March 22nd in the US, Spring Breakers has already debuted at the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Oslo International Film Festival, with a riveting 7.1 on IMDB and 64% on Rotten Tomatoes. Check out the trailer and the motley soundtrack below. (Obviously most people will go see this one for the music):
