Trivia / Spring Breakers

  • Billing Displacement: On the theatrical poster, Selena Gomez is the first billed actor, despite her character leaving the film halfway through. Justified though due to Gomez's character being the main focus of the film until James Franco arrives.
  • Darker and Edgier: Two former Disney queens appear in this film, which makes it obvious that they want to grow out of their clean Disney image.
  • Dawson Casting: Of the four lead actresses, only 20 year old Selena Gomez is strictly the right age to play a college undergrad. Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson are borderline cases at 24 and 23, respectively, while Rachel Korine is 27.
  • Real-Life Relative: Rachel Korine is the director's wife. He must have enjoyed the scene where Cotty is topless.
  • What Could Have Been: Emma Roberts was originally cast as Brit, but she dropped out after being told she was too thin for the role.
