New Bling Ring Trailer Online
Girls gone wild

Based on actual events it may be, but possibly the most intriguing thing about The Bling Ring is how Sofia Coppola will portray the central characters, a group of teenage girls in LA who decide that instead of simply mimicking the lifestyles of the rich and infamous, they’ll rip them off wholesale. Can they be turned into sympathetic film characters? More evidence for your consideration can be found in the new trailer. 

Ripped from the crime blotter of the Los Angeles Times, The Bling Ring finds celebrity-obsessed Rebecca (Katie Chang), Nicki (Emma Watson), Chloe (Claire Julien), Sam (Taissa Farmiga) and others deciding that they want to steal from such pop culture icons as Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, partly so they can feel the rush of crime and partly so they can get their claws on some swanky, expensive gear.

The mini crimewave tore through the luxury communities between 2008 and 2009 until the authorities caught up with the gang, who, based on the evidence of this, seemed more concerned with whether they’d made a connection to their celebrity targets than any actual wrongdoing.

With Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale and Georgia Rock in the cast, The Bling Ring is heading to the Cannes Film Festival and will then steal into UK cinemas on July 5.
