Did You See This? Spring Breakers in Oz

What’s the difference between Oscar Diggs, the womanizing scammer in Oz the Great and Powerful, and Alien, the womanizing wannabe “gangsta” in Spring Breakers? Judging from “Oz Breakers,” an excellent trailer mashup that conflates James Franco’s two most recent roles, not that much.

Featuring images of Harmony Korine’s exploitation flick and audio from Sam Raimi’s big-budget Disney epic, the video conjures up an Oz where young witches in bikinis commit armed robbery, cash overflows, and no one can be trusted.
