The 10 Best Movie Music Moments Of 2013
Last year was a pretty fantastic one for movie music. Directors like David O. Russell, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Ben Affleck made not only fantastic films, but also beautifully crafted soundtracks that blended perfectly with the story and visuals on screen. As a result, 2013 had a lot to live up to, but looking back on the last twelve months reveals that this year’s crop of filmmakers were more than up for the task.

James Franco's Oscar Campaign: 'Consider This Sh*t'
If you remember March's Spring Breakers at all, you probably remember it for the performance from James Franco as Alien, a DJ and low-level crook whose catchphrase "Look at my shit!" became its own mini-phenomenon-- and distributor A24 knows it

Weekend Box Office: Olympus Falls To The Croods As Admission Faces Rejection
Perhaps looking to follow up on their success with the Ice Age series of movies, Fox released the highly mediocre but also highly franchisable The Croods this weekend. The reception in theaters wasn't record breaking, but it was enough to give the movie a solid Spring Break number one debut, leaving star studded Olympus Has Fallen in the dust.

The Croods And Surprisingly Big Olympus Has Fallen Dominate Friday Box Office
Though there are pretty much no guarantees at the box office-- studios will pump hundreds of millions of dollars into films that seem like sure things and go on to be bombs-- it's hard to go wrong with an animated children's film around the season of spring break. DreamWorks Animation, which needed a hit after last fall's disappointing Rise of the Guardians , scored another this weekend with The Croods, which made $11.6 million on Friday and is on track for a $42 million weekend

James Franco Directed A Music Video For The Rapper That Inspired His Spring Breakers Character
Ask a hundred rappers how to get famous, and chances are you’ll get a hundred different answers. Build street cred by selling drugs and flashing weapons. Polish the lyrical linguistics. Perfect the freestyle. Make a YouTube video. Have an uncle who’s a record producer.

Indie Hits The East And Spring Breakers Get New Release Dates
It’s an unfortunate fact, but many indie movies are fairly difficult to track down. They’ll get positive reviews out of major film festivals, but never get a wide release and typically only play in the smallest markets, the smallest theaters or both. But now we have release date news for two of the biggest titles to come out of the indie scene in the last year.

These Spring Breakers Bikini Posters Aren't Afraid To Flaunt Skin
In theory, Spring Breakers could possibly be the most “out there” release of the year, and it’s still the beginning of February. Anything coming from the dark and dangerous mind of Harmony Korine is bound to turn heads while turning some away in the process.

Spring Breakers Delivers Guns And Babes In Sleazy New Trailer
Get ready to hear “Spring Break forever, bitches” a lot.

Spring Breakers Gets An Odd New Poster And A Release Date
As strange as Harmony Korine's films are, the marketing for his latest, Spring Breakers, has actually been fairly logical and straightforward. All of the advertising art we've seen has paid particular focus not just to the bikini-clad starlets at the center of the plot, but also the film's cornrow-styled gangster version of James Franco. Finally, however, the ad campaign has taken the expected strange twist.

Spring Breakers International Poster Has Girls, Guns And Gangster James Franco
Three ingredients are essential to selling Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers to its target audience: Bikini-clad starlets; a corn-rowed James Franco; and a gun. So the international poster for the surreal Spring Break comedy – a cult hit at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival – ticks off all the necessary boxes, even without giving us any idea what we can expect from the film.

James Franco's Spring Breakers Schedules Oscar-Qualifying Release
Yes, good old James Franco, up for doing anything so long as it's unexpected. His performance as tatted-up drug kingpin Alien is easily the best thing in the movie, getting all the best lines ("Look at my shit!") and creating a magnetic center to a story that feels a little repetitive. There's a big difference between a performance lauded by critics for being batshit insane and a performance that gets someone an Oscar

Just How Dirty Do Selena Gomez And Vanessa Hudgens Get In Spring Breakers?
There's a curdled, dark and sometimes very funny core to Spring Breakers that will stun anyone who walks in expecting to see Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez in their first grown-up roles. The girls are grown-up, alright, but Spring Breakers exists to twist that idea and even parody the whole tradition of spring break movies

Pretty Little Liars Star Ashley Benson Cast In Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers
Harmony Korine has already brought together a large number of young actors to work on his next film, Spring Breakers, his feature film follow-up to 2009's Trash Humpers.

Emma Roberts No Longer Starring In Spring Breakers?
From what’s being reported today, it looks like the film Spring Breakers may be in need of a young starlet to replace one of the leads in the Harmony Korine directed drama. Rumor has it, Emma Roberts, who was set to star alongside James Franco and Selena Gomez in the film, has bowed out of the project.

James Franco, Emma Roberts, Vanessa Hudgens And Selena Gomez Could Join Spring Breakers
Korine's filmography includes flicks such as Kids, directed by Larry Clark, as well as Gummo, Mister Lonely, and 2009's Trash Humpers. His movies are, depending on who you talk to, either the works of an avant-garde genius or incoherent and not worthy of the reputation he's earned in indie-film circles.
