First Trailer for Korine’s “The Beach Bum” is All Things McConaughey

Alright, Alight, Alight.

Harmony Korine is back - and this time he’s brought Matthew McConaughey with him for a crazy, drug-infused adventure on the beach.

The Beach Bum tells the story of Moondog, a cliché has-been who refuses to live life by any other rules than his own.  But when he is forced to write his novel, things appear to become even crazier as he searches for the words to convey his somewhat unusual thoughts.

The film, which features an all-star cast including Snoop Dog, Isla Fisher, Martin Lawrence, Zac Efron, and Jonah Hill, has just gotten its first trailer, and by the looks of it, Korine fans are in for a special treat.

Bright colors, exuberant characters, and a coke-addicted parrot keep you engaged, the only question that remains is whether the famed director can repeat his past successes and score another unorthodox indie hit.

The Beach Bum is scheduled to hit theaters on March 29, making, in the much the same vein as Spring Breakers, a SXSW premiere likely.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
