Director is certainly an attraction for some where this movie is concerned, but she's not the main reason behind my excitement for The Bling Ring. The real draw for me are the pretty young things that take center stage in this true-life crime movie, namely , , Claire Julien, and , who seem to have the whole "spoiled bitch" thing going on better than anyone...
As further proof of that, here we have for you some awesome new set images from The Bling Ring, via The Playlist. Check 'em out:
If you prefer Emma's new little-rich-party-girl-in-trouble image to her goody-two-shoes Hermione Granger but you don't have a clue what's going on here, this quick synopsis should do the trick:
The Bling Ring takes a look at today's celebrity-centered culture and tells the story of a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who rob celebrities' homes. Based on true events and set in Los Angeles, the film is expected to uncover the underbelly of celebrity fandom and internet culture.
None of Coppola's previous flicks have been major box office hits, but her past indie movies like Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides have still received plenty of acclaim in the right places. So, perhaps with mainstream Watson in lead for The Bling Ring, this movie will move away from niche audiences and pack as much box office punch as it does attitude. I'm in!
The Bling Ring arrives in theaters June 14th, 2013.
