Emma Watson robs Paris Hilton in a new clip from The Bling Ring
I really thought THE BLING RING would be the movie that brought some redemption to Sofia Coppola. After two consecutive disasters in MARIE ANTOINETTE and SOMEWHERE, her finest film LOST IN TRANSLATION seems like a long time ago. But after THE BLING RING debuted at Cannes, it doesn’t seem like it’s going to do anything to convince the Coppola naysayers she hasn’t lost her touch. But critics at Cannes seem to be different than critics everywhere else, so the movie will have a chance to convince you otherwise in a few weeks. Until then, check out the new clip, featuring Emma Watson and her friends robbing Paris Hilton’s house. And yes, that’s really Paris Hilton’s house. I wonder if Emma Watson’s “meow” comment at the end of the clip was improvised?
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.
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.
