This is the first teaser trailer for Sophia Coppola's latest film The Bling Ring, which shows us the bad girl side of Emma Watson. The movie is based on the true story of a group of six teenagers who stole from celebrities in the Los Angeles area from 2009-2010, stealing over $3 million in worth of goods. Some of the scenes in the movie were actually filmed in the homes of the actual victims such as Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox, and Orlando Bloom. Paris Hilton, was also a victim, and will have a cameo role. Other victims included Kirsten Dunst and Gavin Rossdale. The film was inspired by the Vanity Fair story, The Suspects Wore Louboutins. Here's the synopsis:
THE BLING RING shows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, the teens would break-in and steal designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth, amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, the members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that nearly any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control and reveals a sobering view of our modern culture.
I like the films that Coppola makes, she's a talented writer and director, and I'm looking forward to this one. It also stars Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock, Carlos Miranda, and Leslie Mann. The movie is set to be released on July 14th, 2013.
