This is the year of good stars behaving bad. On the heels of "Spring Breakers" -- the A24 release starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, James Franco's cornrows, threesomes, deep-throated handguns and all manner of poor decisions -- comes the first trailer for "The Bling Ring," the Sofia Coppola movie where Emma Watson steals from the rich.
Based on the real-life Bling Ring -- a group of California teenagers who stole from stars like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan between 2008 and 2009 -- "The Bling Ring" focuses on a group of California teenagers who steal from stars. (The film wound up in the middle of a real-life controversy when an officier involved in the case also acted as a consultant on the project.)
"The Bling Ring" co-stars include Leslie Mann and Israel Broussard, but the real star of the new trailer -- besides that Sleigh Bells music cue -- is Watson. Glammed out and preening like some reality television star, the soon-to-be 23-year-old is a long way from not just Hogwarts but also the warm confines of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." Toss in Coppola's moody visuals and her track record for bringing conflicted female protagonists to great life onscreen (in "The Virgin Suicides," "Lost in Translation," "Marie Antoinette" and "Somewhere"), and "The Bling Ring" should shoot to the top of your must-see list.
A24 has "The Bling Ring" scheduled for release on June 14. Watch the international teaser above.
