Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens seek cheap thrills in Spring Breakers; Stephenie Meyer's The Host has arrived; Paul Rudd romances Tina Fey in Admissions; Portlandia season three and more in new releases.
Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine are a restless quartet that cuts loose in Spring Breakers, from Kids and Gummo director Harmony Korine. The blur of flesh, flash and beer bong beach parties follows Brit (Benson), Faith (Gomez), Candy (Hudgens) and Cotty (Korine), best friends anxious to hit the Florida coast party scene but very low on funds. After holding up a restaurant for quick cash, the girls are thrown in jail, but quickly bailed out by a local rapper, drug pusher and arms dealer who calls himself Alien (James Franco). Soon the girls are lured into a criminal underworld scene that's both shocking and exciting -- and clearly spells more trouble for the aimless friends.
Saoirse Ronan stars in this high-energy adaptation of the bestselling sci-fi novel by Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer. When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, one woman will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.
