The Bling Ring

The Bling Ring

If you are looking to get away from all of the CGI laden blockbusters of the summer then The Bling Ring could well make for some great alternate viewing.

The movie marks the return of Oscar nominated director Sofia Coppola to the chair for the first time since Somewhere.

Now only is Coppola at the helm of this latest movie but she has also penned the screenplay as she has brought this real life story to the big screen.

And we have the brand new UK trailer for the film for you to take a look at:

In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills.

Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes.

Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as "The Bling Ring".

Emma Watson has worked sparingly since leaving the Harry Potter franchise but The Bling Ring marks her return as she teams up with Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien.

We will be able to get a first look at the movie at the Cannes Film Festival where it will be screened as part of the Un Certain Regard programme.

Coppola has been behind some great movies during her career and it is great to see her back in the director's chair.

The Bling Ring is released 5th July.
