Brand New ‘Bling Ring’ Featurette

With The Bling Ring hitting theaters this very weekend it was about time we got an exciting new featurette!

In this clip director Sofia Coppola, some of the cast members (Emma Watson and Israel Broussard) and producer Youree Henley discuss the movie and the events surrounding the real ‘Hollwood Hills Burglar Bunch’. Sofia explains how she wanted the tell the story “from the kid’s point of view”. Henley adds that the youngsters didn’t necessarily want to rob the celebrities, but were more interested in being part of their lifestyle and things just escalated. There’s also some never seen before footage.

Very excited for it, even if it looks like Sofia is making fun of the ‘gang’. In my opinion that’s just the marketing team playing to people’s expectations. Knowing Coppola’s films she always loves and sympathizes with her characters. That’s probably also the reason why the reviews have been ‘mixed’ so far: People would prefer her to just condemn them, but that would be a way too narrow-minded and her films are anything but that.

Sofia Coppola’s new film is about a group of teenagers robbing Hollywood celebrities like Paris Hilton (who has a cameo in the movie), Lindsay Lohan, Miranda Kerr and Audrina Patrigde (of MTV’s The Hills fame). The crime/comedy/drama opens in the US in limited release this weekend (five theaters) and expands to 500+ on Friday, June 21st.

Seven Great Fan-Made ‘Bling Ring’ Posters

The poster art for Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring certainly wasn’t the marketing team’s strong suit. As it happens with these indies, sometimes the fan-made posters are more interesting for their raw and gritty qualities. Here are seven posters for The Bling Ring that are better than the ‘official’ ones. Some of these are very much inspired from the real ones (or the other way around?), featuring the same images or font, some are basically just scenes from the film pieced together and some are completely ‘original’ designs.

Taissa Looks Enticing

It’s always fun to read what people say on IMDb message boards. Someone on The Bling Ring board claimed that lovely actress Taissa Farmiga wasn’t “hot” or “sexy enough” to play her part. I beg to differ. Especially after this picture uploaded on Facebook today. I think she looks gorgeous and those tattoos are absolutely darling. Wouldn’t you agree?


New ‘Bling Ring’ Pictures

With the nearing release of Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring in the States, I am getting very excited for the film. The movie’s official Facebook page has been uploading lots of new pictures and stills. Here are the ten that stuck out for me, you’ll notice that most of them feature Katie Chang: That’s because her performance is what I look forward most in terms of acting. It helps that she is so incredibly gorgeous. What’s also apparent, is Harris Savides’ (RIP) stunning cinematography.
