Emma Watson gives attitude in new photos from The Bling Ring
A handful of new pictures from Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING starring Emma Watson have been released. Coppola’s fifth directed film will be hitting theaters in about month and it’s time to start drumming up the marketing campaign. None of Coppola’s previous films have been box office gold but they usually stir up some strong opinions one way or the other. I think with Hermoine Granger (will we ever stop calling Emma Watson that?) starring as the lead, the film might reach a wider audience. Judging by the photos below, she appears to be giving the appropriate attitude for the role. I hope this one is more like the fulfilling LOST IN TRANSLATION rather than the empty SOMEWHERE.
THE BLING RING (click the link to watch the trailer) official synopsis: In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.” In THE BLING RING, Oscar Winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as youthful fun spins out of control, revealing a sobering view of our modern culture.
THE BLING RING stars Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Nina Siemaszko, Erin Daniels, Patricia Lentz, Stacy Edwards, Gavin Rossdale and Maika Monroe. The Sofia Coppola directed film will hit theaters this summer on June 14th. (The Playlist)
