Emma Watson looks happy on the final poster for The Bling Ring
If I knew nothing about THE BLING RING and happened to walk by this new poster in a movie theater, I would know right away that the film was directed by Sofia Coppola. It looks similar to MARIE ANTOINETTE and SOMEWHERE, with the font of the title and the way it’s written. But if there’s a surprise with the poster, it’s that star Emma Watson isn’t more front and center. In fact, some people might not even recognize her with those sunglasses on. So I don’t know if this poster will be hanging up in pre-teens’ bedrooms across the country, but I’m excited for the film nonetheless. I’m anxious to see if Sofia Coppola can get back to her normal self after the disaster that was SOMEWHERE.
THE BLING RING stars Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Nina Siemaszko, Erin Daniels, Patricia Lentz, Stacy Edwards and Maika Monroe. The Sofia Coppola directed film will hit theaters this summer on June 14th.
THE BLING RING 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.
