It's the final stretch until the June 14th release of Sofia Coppola's newest exploration of nihilism, material excess, and Los Angeles, the based-on-true-events "The Bling Ring," and the first full trailer for the film has just been released. Starring a host of young stars such as "Harry Potter"'s Emma Watson and "American Horror Story"'s Taissa Farmiga, alongside newcomers and a few celebrity cameos (Kirsten Dunst and Paris Hilton pop up in the trailer), the film follows a group of naive teens with a fixation on a life of glamor, who loot the houses of celebrities while they're away.
The bad behavior and the naturalistic, totally obnoxious and vain way that the characters talk to each other call to mind distributor A24's other recent success, Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," which definitely seems to have a lot in common with this film. Before opening in the U.S., "The Bling Ring" will kick off Cannes' Un Certain Regard section in May.
