Teaser for Sophia Coppola’s The Bling Ring

I know that two movies does not a trend make, but doesn’t Sophia Coppola’s youth driven heist film remind one a lot of Spring Breakers? I know that Korine and Coppola are miles apart stylistically, but, at first blush, they seem birds of a feather at least spiritually. Emma Watson, Leslie Mann and Gavin Rossdale star in a plot inspired by actual events involving a group of fame-obsessed teenagers who use the internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.

In the ‘real’ story, not only was was Paris Hilton robbed, but also Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox. Is there a healthy dose of schadenfreude to be injected into the proceedings, or is it empathy for the privileged elite? It could go either way.

  1. Looks like spoiled rich kids stealing from spoiled rich kids – it might make for an interesting spectacle, but I’m not sure if there’ll be anyone to properly root for in this picture.

  2. Does anybody know which songs will be used in the film? I´d really like to know. Sofia has really good taste on the music she uses on her films, hope yhis ones is as awesome as the previous ones.
