Spring Breakers fared fairly well in a limited box office release last week.

And the movie so far has generated a decent amount of attention because, well, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens get into a threesome.

But director Harmony Korine has given fans another reason to go see this raunchy film: James Franco's portrayal of a drug dealer named "Alien."

James Franco as Alien

"I spent a year just sending him images and talking to him, designing the character," Korine told Movie Fanatic of working with the actor on the role.

"I never saw him do it. He didn’t want to rehearse. When he put in the cornrows and the gold teeth and I heard the accent… I was like ‘whoa.' He was a maniac."

We presume he means that in the most flattering way possible. Visit Movie Fanatic now for the full exclusive interview with Korine and sound off: Will you be seeing Spring Breakers this weekend?

Worried about their 13-year-old daughter's increasingly disrespectful behavior, two parents decided to make her punishment humiliating and public.

Gentry and Renee Nickell of Crestview, Fla., made her spend 90 minutes standing at a busy intersection with a hand-written sign describing her sins:

Parents Sign

The sign they made her hold says: "I’m a self-entitled teenager w/no respect for authority. I’m also super smart, yet I have 3 'D’s' because I DON’T CARE."

Passing motorists saw the teen and took pictures with their phones. Some of the photos ended up on Facebook, where they were shared within the community.

Someone called the cops, who showed up to talk to the teen and left after deciding that she was "aware of her punishment and she was not in any harm."

Now, however, the parents are feeling a little humiliation of their own.

Yup, an Oscar winner has been cast in Divergent.

Following weeks of speculation it's been confirmed that Kate Winslet will play a key role in the adaption of this wildly popular novel.

She will come on board as Jeanine Matthews, the most powerful member of the Erudite faction and someone who pens articles to smear the Abnegation faction.

Divergent tells the story of a teenager (Shailene Woodley) in the future, as she looks to break free from her homogeneous society, one that divides people based on human traits.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said this week that he isn't sure if he would sign a bill to ban the practice of using therapies to turn a gay child into a straight child.

His expected challenger for reelection, State Sen. Barbara Buono, a co-sponsor of the bill banning gay conversion therapy of minors, calls that "disgusting."

Gov. Christie

The Buono team clearly senses an opening to cast the popular Republican governor as a right-wing fanatic, something he is rarely if ever called.

He was asked yesterday about the bill, which passed out of a legislative committee Monday and has yet to be approved by the full state legislature.

Christie said that he generally doesn't decide on bills before they reach his desk and he had only recently heard of the practice of gay conversion.

Yoko Ono has gotten herself involved in the debate on gun control.

And the widow of John Lennon is using the memory of her late husband to help get her point across.

In a series of Tweets, Ono sent messages to her 3.7 million followers that included the image of Lennon's bloody glasses, which were removed after his shooting in 1980 and first published on the cover of the 1981 album "Season of Glass."

Lennon tweet

"Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980," Ono wrote. "31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone."
