As upstart distributor A24 gears up for the release of what will likely be their first major hit, Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers, they have another film on the shelf featuring another Hollywood starlet doing some naughty things. Grabbing a mid-summer release earlier this month, we now have the first teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola‘s Somewhere follow-up, The Bling Ring.
Based on true events, Emma Watson leads our titular group of teenage criminals, backed by Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, and Georgia Rock. Coming from the Vanity Fair story The Suspects Wore Louboutins, the film focuses on a nefarious group who, in real-life instances, stole thousands to millions of dollars worth of belongings from celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and Lindsay Lohan, a few of which appear in the film.
