Bling Ring Teaser Shows Bad Girl Emma Watson
Hollywood is a place where dreams come true! And for a batch of besties crazy for couture and glitzy jewelry, their dream was to take what they wanted by any means necessary. For the Bling Ring, this meant tracking the movements of celebs like Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox and Paris Hilton, then pilfering their places while these stars were out on the town.
For her follow-up to the critically heralded father-daughter drama Somewhere, writer-director Sofia Coppola spun the true story of these wild and entitled teenagers into a new crime dramedy called Bling Ring. Emma Watson heads up the cast, shedding her Harry Potter good girl image with the help of a tramp stamp tattoo, scandalously short shorts, and plenty of bad girl behavior. Get a look at her in action in Bling Ring's newly revealed teaser:
Even though this teaser clocks in under the minute mark, it deftly displays a kinetic energy and clearly unveils the draw of these crafty crimes. Just imagine sauntering into the homes of the insanely wealthy and making their closets—packed with gorgeous clothes, dazzling jewelry, and unfairly fabulous footwear—your own personal grab bag. It'd be a hell of a ride…at least until the cops catch on.
Personally, I'm curious to see how Coppola will characterize these thieving fashionistas. A long-time member of the Los Angeles elite, she likely knows several of their victims. Could she possibly empathize with their perverted path to the materialistic self-fulfillment, even if they robbed some of her pals? We'll find out when The Bling Ring opens in limited release on June 14th.
