Emma Watson robs Paris Hilton using Google Maps and other fun facts in this Bling Ring featurette

06.11.2013

Sofia Coppola's THE BLING RING has not shed too much detail on the squad of teen girls who went on a crime spree and robbed Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan in the trailers released so far. The biggest selling point of the film has been Emma Watson shedding her HARRY POTTER character and playing a more sexual and less pure character. I have never found Emma Watson all that sexual, probably because I watched her grow up on screen from a young kid. But, this new featurette for THE BLING RING really tries to sell you on how different this is from anything she has played before.

What they also do is show how annoying of a person she is playing. The Valley Girl accent and self-entitled personality on display in this video makes me cringe but also shows that Emma Watson is not a one-trick pony of an actress. We also get a look at Leslie Mann as Emma Watson's mother and some of the other friends who helped rob the homes of the rich and famous.

THE BLING RING is looking more and more like an indie version of MEAN GIRLS, which is not a bad thing, but it does seem less original than Sofia Coppola's other movies. I really love LOST IN TRANSLATION and appreciated what she tried to do with MARIE ANTOINETTE. But, THE BLING RING, like SOMEWHERE before it, feels like a step back for the director.

THE BLING RING starring Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Kirsten Dunst, Leslie Mann, Israel Broussard, and Taissa Farmiga, opens in limited release on June 14, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: If I knew it was as easy as looking up Paris Hilton's house on Google Maps, I would have robbed her as well.

I'm liking what I see of this movie so far

Sofia Coppola's always been great at drawing killer performances from her actors, and it looks like she's doing more of the same here. I've already heard from a few reviewer friends that this movie's a winner so I'm looking forward to seeing it when I have the chance.

As for Emma Watson, I like how she's managing her career. Obviously HARRY POTTER made her a star, now she's taking on prestige projects with directors who have cachet in the industry. She's also demonstrating more range,

She's also demonstrating more range, playing a less sympathetic character in this movie. And no, she's not getting naked; there's no nudity in this film.

Doesn't look enjoyable, but the major thumbs down is because.......

it's about robbing Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan...I hate the fact that they're mentioned, especially Lohan. Paris will love the attention and Lohan probably demanded a high paycheck for having her name mentioned, which according to her lawyer is a name like Oprah's and Madonna's, cuz Lindsay Lohan was the first Lindsay. smh

Also, wasn't Lohan, not too long ago, broke and living with her mom?....Why not choose some other actress?

Because that is what actually happened and sadly, they probably want to keep this one as close to "reality" as possible.

"The biggest selling point of the film has been Emma Watson shedding her HARRY POTTER character and playing a more sexual and less pure character."

First step to transition from child actress to adult actress, get naked and be overtly sexual. Step one is the only step, and it is what EVERY child actress does whenever she wants to be taken more seriously as an adult.
