Breaking and entering is cool. That’s sure how this new trailer for The Bling Ring makes it look.
In the real-life story The Bling Ring, Emma Watson plays a student part of a group of teens who rob the homes of several Hollywood starlets including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan. In the preview footage Watson sheds the image of her Harry Potter character Hermione by smoking marijuana and dancing on a stripper pole.
The film focuses on the ring of bandits who break into the homes of celebrities and steals their expensive goods. The 22-year-old actress plays Alexis Neiers, who was charged with first degree burglary and sentenced to 180 days in jail. She was also given three years of probation for breaking into Bloom’s home in 2009.
The film’s opening line, “Girls, time for your Adderall!,” really sums up the vibe of this movie.
It’s interesting how many of the real-life celebrities whom the Bling Ring Coppola stole from got involved with her new film. Paris Hilton can be spotted in the trailer, as well as Kirsten Dunst.
Real life blinger, Alexis Neiers, calls the film “trashy and inaccurate.” Which pretty much sums up the life of Alexis Neiers.
Neiers also wrote that “no one knows the real story behind the Bling Ring,” claiming that the media has been consistently inaccurate in its reporting and that since the case never went to trial, as all the members pleaded “no contest” to felony burglary charges, the world will never know the real truth.
I think we know enough sweetie.
