10 Movies We Can’t Believe Have Merchandise Tie-Ins

In its first weekend of wide release, Harmony Korine’s hedonistic morality play Spring Breakers did a respectable $5 million and landed in the top ten — certainly a first for Korine, and an indication that newbie distributor A24 may have an indie hit on their hands. And when a movie is big, you know what comes next: merchandising! You wouldn’t think that Korine’s feverish vision of gun-toting, bikini-wearing babes would be a natural for tie-in products, but you’d be wrong; after the jump, we’ll take a look at your must-have Breakers merch, and nine other unlikely movies you won’t believe were merchandised.

Spring Breakers

Spring Breakers hadn’t even gone wide when we spotted this full page of merch inspired by the Lauderdale adventures of Alien and the girls. It’s all here — replica bikinis (obvi), unicorn hoodies, character jerseys (with an upside-down cross for Faith, a marijuana leaf for Candy, etc.), backpacks, bandanas, and (of course) a variety of “SPRING BREAK 4EVER BITCHES” bracelets. We assume the Alien grill home kit and neon stocking caps are forthcoming.
