Is it just me, or has Hollywood hit on a new genre that stars actresses that have always been assosciated with wholesome roles, and transforming them into sexy eye candy thieves? That might be the case, because after a dose of Spring Breakers, we now have the more glammeriffic Bling Ring coming up.
Like oh my gaaaaaaaaawd, here’s the first like, trailer for it. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawd mom, those shoes you bought me were crap.
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.”
I think Emma Watson is going to win an Oscar from her portrayal as a know-it-all wizard to a vapid, materialistic party girl. Watson is most likely the key to also making this entire film work, something that director Sofia Coppola knows. It’s also the final film that famed cinematographer Harris Savides worked on, and it’s clear that he put all his remaining energy into it.
It looks interesting, I’ll admit, and after having experienced that kind of culture in real life as well, pretty damn authentic. The Bling Ring also stars Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Claire Julien, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Georgia Rock and Gavin Rossdale, and is out June 14.
