The first official teaser for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming feature The Bling Ring has finally arrived courtesy of A24. Accompanied with the song “Crown on the Ground” by Sleigh Bells, the brief 56-second teaser trailer provides a glimpse of obsession, theft, and youthful rebellion.
Based on a true story, The Bling Ring centers on a group of celebrity-obsessed teenagers in Los Angeles who pulled off heists of celebrity homes between October 2008 and August 2009. The teenagers reportedly stole $3 million worth of possessions from likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, and Audrina Patridge. Although I’m unfamiliar with the exact details of the true story, this seems like perfect material for Sofia Coppola who brings a great sense of style to all of her films.
Judging from the footage, it appears that this film is going to be more energetic than most of Coppola’s previous directorial efforts, which tended to be more moodier and low key. The Bling Ring features a cast that includes Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Maika Monroe, Leslie Mann, and Paris Hilton. Check out the teaser and a new image below:
