A24 Drops a Rather Serious James Franco 'Consider This Sh*t' Video
"Some kids, they wanna grow up and be president. Some kids wanna be a doctor… I just wanted to be bad." Hah, yes - more Alien please! A24 is continuing their push for James Franco for Best Supporting Actor in Spring Breakers, and they've released a quick video on YouTube highlighting his performance and many of the quotes praising it. Back in October we ran a post with the headline: A24 Really IS Pushing James Franco for a Spring Breakers Oscar featuring some print ads, and I've been reminding people they really are serious about this. Will all of this honest, serious campaigning make a difference? Will he actually get a nomination? I'm not entirely sure, but I don't mind supporting their push to get one! Good luck, A24.
Here's the new "Consider This Sh*t!" For Your Consideration promo, first debuted by Huffington Post:
Four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation find themselves bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who wants them to do some dirty work. We've been reporting that James Franco would get a push for Best Supporting Actor ever since the film premiered at the Toronto Film Fest back in late 2012. After earning a modest $14 million at the box office in March this year, A24 has been pushing the film to audiences in interesting ways. In October they released the first For Your Consideration ads in print, which we covered here. And they're going to keep pushing it these last few weeks of the awards season, when crucial voting is taking place. In the meantime, Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is now available on DVD/Blu-ray if you wish to own a copy of it. "This is my fuckin' dream, y'all!"
