Some rather interesting new materials from writer/director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film The Bling Ring have made their way online. Most notable is the first clip from the film, which is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed the homes of the rich and famous between October 2008 and August 2009, coming away with over $3 million worth of loot from the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan. The clip shows the group of youngsters raiding a rather ridiculous “closet” that presumably belongs to one of the aforementioned celebrities, and we see Emma Watson’s character trying out a stripper pole in the process. I’m really interested to see Coppola’s angle on this celeb-obsessed story, and it’s looking like The Bling Ring might make a nice double feature with Harmony Korine’s culture portrait Spring Breakers.
Hit the jump to watch the first clip and to check out a batch of new images. The film also stars Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard (Flipped), Katie Chang, Claire Julien, Gavin Rossdale, and Leslie Mann. The Bling Ring opens in limited release on June 14th.
