Remember a few years ago when Paris Hilton was still kind of famous for that sex tape, and she was freaking out because someone broke into her house and stole stuff and everyone thought, “Oh great, another sex tape”? Well, Sofia Coppola has written and directed a film about that and similar stories, inspired by a gang that became affectionately known as “The Bling Ring”.
In the film that shares the same name, Emma Watson plays the leader of a gang of douchey teenagers who track celebrities and their appearances on the Internet in order to rob their homes so they, too, can live the glitzy Hollywood life. The true story isn’t much different, as it also involved six douchey teen-ish guys and girls, who stole from the rich to behave like they weren’t poor.
Starring Watson, Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale, Taissa Farmiga and others, The Bling Ring has a new trailer and it looks like the kind of movie that’s going to inspire your own douchey teenage kids to get their stupid asses arrested.
While she’s not listed on the film’s IMDB page, Deadline also lists Hilton herself among the stars of this film, which is both so meta and awful. Bringing back sex tape stars who are the reason we are drowning in fake celebrity reality shows is about as charming as a dick in a popcorn bucket. Although, I still hope I’m wrong about that second one.
