The Bling Ring Trailer Steals In
Emma Watson goes criminal

10 March 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: YouTube

In what looks to be a definite change of gear for the normally reflective, whimsical Sofia Coppola, she’s been hard at work on a based-on-truth-tale of criminal girls who robbed some of Hollywood’s poshest pads. Now the first trailer for The Bling Ring has arrived online. 

Featuring the likes of Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Erin Daniels, Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale and Nina Siemaszko, The Bling Ring is drawn from a 2010 Vanity Fair article about a group of celeb-obssessed teenagers who targeted and burgled such notable names as Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom.

The group managed to pull off the jobs without attracting too much attention, but were eventually accused of stealing more than $3 million in clothes and jewellery.

This first promo focuses more on their wild lives and the fun they had celebrating their misdeeds, though there are flashes of them at work thieving.

It’ll be interesting to see how Coppola handles this, though she’s usually solid when it comes to intriguing female characters. Plus, it’ll be fun to see Watson cut loose, as she was certainly enjoyable in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

The Bling Ring is set to arrive in the US on June 14, but there’s no sign of a UK date just yet.

SOFIA COPPOLA TRIES 2B POP-POLA
This looks like a blatant stab at making a more mainstream movie - I just really hope that this movie has the artsy flourishes that made her previous work so compelling coz that trailer looks like a tame 'Spring Breakers' More
