The Place For Everything Movies
Sofia Coppola has been relatively quiet about her upcoming film, but at last a teaser trailer is released.
The Bling Ring features a group of young, LA teens that rob celebrities’ homes. These fame-obsessed youths are based upon actual people who robbed the likes of Kirsten Dunst and Paris Hilton. Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and Leslie Mann star in the film.
How much of this story will be fact remains to be seen. We saw what Coppola did with Marie Antoinette, and, while I enjoyed this different spin on a period piece, many did approve of the tweaking of historical figures. This story is much more contemporary, and much more obscure, so moviegoers may be more comfortable with inaccuracies.
Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides, and Somewhere are Coppola’s other films, and like Marie Antoinette, music plays a vital role in the storytelling process of each. In the trailer for Bling Ring, we see how Coppola uses music to encompass the vibe of the story. Boy, does she know how to pick songs! Sleigh Bell, the Brooklyn electric pop duo, get their day in the sun as their hit, Crown On the Ground, blasts through the trailer.
Emma Watson leaves Hogwarts and the world of Harry Potter far behind, and shows that she can have a bad side. Fans better be prepared! The film is set for an international release on June 14th. Check out the teaser below:
