The Bling Ring has released its first trailer. One might think that the true story of a group of rich kids who burglarized celebrities' homes for kicks would be a strange choice for Sofia Coppola to make her next film.
But, when thinking about it further, Movie Fanatic cannot wait to get her take on this incredible and most ridiculous of tales. What's also fascinating is that the film stars Harry Potter movies veteran Emma Watson. The actress is choosing wisely in her post-Potter career after her turns in My Week with Marilyn and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
From October 2008 through August 2009, five friends used the rich and famous' homes as their own personal mall. And then they lived it up off the profits. Police estimate the crew, that would become known as The Bling Ring, hauled loot worth close to $3 million!
From the moment we got our first look of Emma Watson in The Bling Ring, we were sold. The film hits theaters June 14 and also stars Katie Chang, Leslie Mann and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.
