When I first saw the “For Your Consideration” poster above calling on Oscar voters to cast their vote for James Franco for his portrayal of “Alien” in Spring Breakers,” I was sure it was fake. It is not.
THR has learned that the new distributor has prepared campaign materials, which will be released imminently, that pay homage to Franco’s character, Alien, and his extended boastful rant in the film about his cool property, or “shit,” by using the slogan “CONSIDER THIS SH*T” as he holds an Oscar statuette in each of hand.
An A24 spokesperson tells THR, “James Franco has created a character so indelible it deserves recognition. We are excited to be able to support it with a campaign and know the impact of Alien will last far past this awards season.”
This now has me thinking about how I kind of wish Bill Hader would have done his routine last night as Alien instead of as the “president of Hollywood.”
