Watch the trailer for Sophia Coppola’s ‘The Bling Ring’ with Emma Watson
Hermione she is no longer. In her second outing after the end of Harry Potter, Emma Watson follows up the teenage melodrama “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” with Sophia Coppola’s new movie “The Bling Ring”, the story of the teen bandits who nabbed millions from celebrity homes in 2008 and 2009.
Watson’s still playing the teenage roles, but this one is a decidedly darker turn. When cops busted the Hollywood bandits, they found drugs and guns in addition to the millions in jewels and clothes pilfered from Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan’s houses, among others.
They grow up fast, don’t they?
The teaser also looks like a return to the more upbeat, pulp sensibility of “The Virgin Suicides” for Coppola, whose last movie, 2010’s “Somewhere”, was kind of a snoozer. Watch below. “The Bling Ring” is out June 14.
