Selena Gomez provides a little calm before the storm for her new film “Spring Breakers” with Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson. A new sneak peek clip shows her lamenting their boring life.
“I’m so tired of seeing the same thing every single day,” Selena’s character laments as the camera zeros in on her full, lush lips and baby doll eyes.
The movie is a big leap for Gomez, who starred for fives years as squeaky clean Alex Russo in Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place. The series ended in January, and Gomez, who turned 20 in July, is trying to transition to more adult roles.

“Spring Breakers,” about four disaffected college kids who rob a fast food restaurant to get money to take a spring break vacation in Florida, is her raciest role yet. She gets a lot of bikini time in the film in some wild party scenes.
The girls fall in with a sleazy drug dealer named “Alien” played by James Franco, who bails them out of jail and recruits them to help him battle a rival drug dealer.
In the scene, Gomez and her friends are in jail lamenting the sameness in their lives. They have grown up together since grade school.
“Everybody is miserable here because everybody sees the same things,” Gomez says. “We wake up in the same beds, the same houses, same depressing street lights, one gas station…”
The 30-second clip also provides a brief look at a blonde-haired Hudgens.
The film, directed by Harmony Korine, will be in competition at the Venice Film Festival. Skrillex produced the score. The party scenes were shot in March and April in and around St. Petersburg, Fla, with lots of bikini-clad girls. Check out the clip below.
