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 Chang, Claire Julien, and Leslie Mann. The Bling Ring opens in limited release on June 14th.
