Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and Claire Julien star as a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who start robbing celebrities' houses.
In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a team of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills.
Based upon real events, the team, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracks the location of stars on the Internet, then enters their homes when they are in the least threat of getting caught.
Celebrities who were cheated by the group in its heyday included Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Audrina Patridge and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as "The Bling Ring.".
The Bling Ring is directed by Sophia Coppola and will premiere June 14.
Though Watson is most definitely part of the ensemble, that includes Leslie Mann doing her worried mom thing, the brand-new trailer is certainly highlighting Watson's against-type performance as a star-obsessed young criminal.
Unlike, the ladies of, say, Springtime Breakers, Watson's test in this motion picture is not about whether she can get sexy. No, it looks like this film will address the question about whether Emma Watson can convincingly change into somebody who is the polar reverse of Hermione from Harry Potter.
Watson's character is freely based upon Alexis Neiers, a model and former reality show star. Quickly after shooting the aviator for the transient E! program, "Pretty Wild," Neiers was jailed for her participation in the so-called Bling Ring thefts.
Emma Watson played a delicate teenager in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but she was still ultimately the excellent hearted kid in that indie duty.
