Spring Breakers (March)
Pulling away from her good girl Disney image a bit, Selena Gomez stars alongside Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine and James Franco in the ultimate, raucous, much talked about spring break movie, Spring Breakers. The film follows four childhood friends, now college students, looking to get out of town and have an adventurous spring break experience. This is probably where the similarities to any spring break viewers have ever been on ends. In the search for the perfect vacation, the ladies get tangled up with notorious drug and arms dealer Alien (Franco) who has his own plans for the naivetés. Needless to say, a roller coaster of a trip ensues, and the girls may end up getting a little more fun than they bargained for!
