Director Sofia Coppola‘s fact-based drama The Bling Ring will open the ‘Un Certain Regard’ selection of the Cannes Film Festival next month and a new trailer promoting the film’s June 14th, 2013 Us release has dropped. Judging by the trailer, the film will be a testament to how well Coppola has captured the celebrity-obsessed culture that surrounds us nowadays. Emma Watson and Leslie Mann lead the cast of mostly smaller names including Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda in the celebrity-obsessed world. This first full trailer offers definitely the closest look at the film we’ve gotten thus far with Watson...

The film sees Emma Watson return to the big screen after her first post-Harry Potter leading role last year in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. And, naturally, we’re all looking forward to seeing her in a character entirely different to what we’ve often seen her play.
The first teaser trailer surfaced last month, giving us a brilliant flavour of what’s to come in Coppola’s latest feature. And now the full-length trailer has debuted over at Yahoo Movies, giving a longer look at what we’ve got to look forward to this summer.

Watson stars in the Sofia Coppola-directed movie as Nikki, a member of a teenage burglary ring which successfully broke into the homes of numerous celebrities in the Hollywood Hills.
Nikki and her associates are seen raiding Paris Hilton's home in the new trailer, going through the socialite's walk-in wardrobe and stealing her shoes and clothes.
Watson recently branded Nikki as "superficial, materialistic, vain [and] amoral", but said that she relished the challenge of playing a character that she disliked so much.
Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Leslie Mann, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda also star in The Bling Ring, which will screen out of competition as the opening film in the Cannes Film Festival's 'Un Certain Regard' strand.
The Bling Ring will be released on June 14 in the Us and on July 5 in the UK. »
Having returned to the big screen last year in her first leading performance since the conclusion of the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson is back once more this year in Sofia Coppola’s anticipated The Bling Ring.
We were treated to a rather brilliant first teaser trailer last month, which opted to go largely without any dialogue, and still managed to give a great sense of what we have to look forward to. And with its release date very much on the horizon, the first teaser poster has debuted online.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers, Rebecca, Marc, Nicki, Sam and Chloe, known as the Bling Ring, use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. Victims included Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, and Orlando Bloom.

The first poster for The Bling Ring has been released.
Emma Watson stars as one of a group of fame-obsessed teenagers, who rob celebrities' Los Angeles homes by using the internet to determine when they are out.
Directed by Sofia Coppola, the drama is based on real events which took place between 2008 and 2009, and saw celebrities including Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Megan Fox fall victim to the 'Bling Ring'.
Watson recently admitted that she hates her character Nicki, but found the experience of playing somebody so reprehensible "really interesting".
A set of new images and a brief clip were released earlier this month, showing Watson alongside fellow cast members Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga, Claire Julien, Carlos Miranda and Leslie Mann.
The Bling Ring will be released on June 14 in the Us and July 5 in the UK. Watch a trailer below: »
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. »

The actress plays Nicki, a pole-dancing, thieving 'Valley Vixen' involved in a circle that steals from famous people.
She said to GQ: "When I read the script and I realised that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it's become to our society, I had to do it.
"The character is everything that I felt strongly against - she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realised that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate?
"But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be."
Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring is undoubtedly a must-see movie this year, for so many reasons. It will see the Oscar-winning Coppola return behind the camera for the first time since 2010’s Somewhere. It’s led by the brilliant young Emma Watson, who has been making a great name for herself already in her post-Harry Potter career.
And, of course, it’s called The Bling Ring. With a title like that, and a cadre of filmmakers like it has, it’s unmissable cinema.
With its June release date now very much on the horizon, the first teaser trailer has debuted, giving us a great little look at the film. I think the thing that I love most about it is that it features almost no dialogue, and still helps us know just what to expect.

It looks like young people doing very bad things is going to be recurring theme this year. And the folks at A24 are more than happy to bring it you. Later this month, Harmony Korine and his group of young starlets tear up Florida in "Spring Breakers." Then this summer, Emma Watson joins another group of no good kids to steal and rob in "The Bling Ring" but there's one difference -- this is based on actual events. The first teaser for Sofia Coppola's film is here, and it's a stylistic left turn for the filmmaker. Known for her moodier efforts like "The Virgin Suicides," "Lost In Translation" and "Somewhere," this is pumped up by pushed-to-the-red sounds of "Crown On The Ground" by Sleigh Bells, and with a much more energetic, ripped-from-the-headlines vibe and in-the-moment feel (thanks to the surveillance style footage).

Get out your day planner and start making some adjustments. A couple of Sundance movies, a highly anticipated entry from an auteur, and some blockbusters are getting release dates. First up, Sofia Coppola's latest tale of bad girls, "The Bling Ring," is now stealing a June 14th bow as planned. The film stars Emma Watson alongside a group of smaller names-- Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda (and Leslie Mann has a role too) -- in the based-on-a-true-story tale of a group of affluent teenagers who pulled off some brazen heists of celebrity homes, taking up to $3 million worth of goods. We'd wager a Cannes premiere (likely out of competition, or maybe in the edgier Un Certain Regard) is a strong possibility. Next up, James Ponsoldt's Sundance Film Festival sensation "The Spectacular Now" will arrive, curiously, at the end of summer on August 2nd. »
