New Images from Sofia Coppola’s THE BLING RING Starring Emma Watson

     April 8, 2013


A number of new images from writer/director Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film The Bling Ring have landed online.  The pic marks Coppola’s follow-up to her 2010 film Somewhere and 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.  It’s most definitely an interesting choice of topic for the Lost in Translation filmmaker, but the pic’s first trailer and these new images promise a fascinating look into the celebrity-obsessed, material-based culture that spurred the film’s real-life events in the first place.  The new images also give us another look at Emma Watson’s rather interesting character transformation.

Hit the jump to view the images.  The film also stars Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Israel Broussard (Flipped), Katie ChangClaire Julien, and Leslie MannThe Bling Ring opens in limited release on June 14th.

    The fact that your site routinely fails to state how stories about minorities have been casually turned into stories about white people amazes me. The ring leader of the incidents this movie is based on was asian, but hollywood didn’t even consider an asian woman for the role. Wouldn’t this pervasive, institutionalized racism in the industry be something of import to your readers, or any half-serious film news site?

      I really enjoy reading Collider, I visit multiple times a day. However, the fact the Collider and /Film almost never remark on how whitewashed stories are upsets me almost as much as the studios who do the whitewashing.

        Do your research Mr. John Luther. New actress Katie Chang will play a character in the film who’s based on Rachel Lee, while Emma Watson’s character is based on Alexis Neiers.

      The leader of the ring IS Asian. Emma’s character is about third most important, she even stated so on her twitter. The two most seen are the asian ring leader and the gay boy.
