Emma Watson and her fellow Bling Ring stars are up to no good in the new trailer for the film, which shows a group of fame-obsessed teens tearing up the clubs and also helping themselves to the clothes, shoes, accessories and even a dog belonging to the rich and famous residents of Hollywood.
Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, The Bling Ring stars Watson, Leslie Mann, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga and Gavin Rossdale, and is based on the true story of a bunch of teens who tracked the whereabouts of celebrities and used the information to rob their homes. We've seen the previously released clip and teaser, but the trailer, which comes courtesy of Yahoo, gives us our biggest look at the film yet, introducing us to Watson's character and her friends as they party like rock stars and eventually devise a plan to break into Paris Hilton's home. Cut to the amazing closet full of shoes and hats and other expensive items, theirs for the taking - or stealing. And that appears to be just the start of their shenanigans, which inevitably lead to legal troubles, and lots of press, as glimpsed in the later part of the trailer.
It's great to see Watson taking on the role of a bad girl who appears to be up for partying and stealing and clearly enjoys the spotlight, even if it's coming from the press. It's a stark contrast from Watson's Harry Potter character, Hermione Granger, who probably wouldn't touch a cigarette and whose preference for bling didn't extend beyond the time turner she once wore for a time in order to attend extra classes.
The Bling Ring arrives June 14.
