Emma Watson Gone Wild in 'The Bling Ring' Trailer

The Bling Ring

If there's a director in Hollywood that truly understands the type of trouble rich kids can get into, it's probably Sofia Coppola -- and as evidenced by the first teaser for her upcoming movie The Bling Ring, she knows how to make that trouble look like a whole bunch of sexy fun.

It's perhaps most notable at this point for being the movie that's supposed to break Emma Watson out of her Harry Potter-created teen queendom, but The Bling Ring has more going for it than simple Spring Breakers-style lurid thrills; it's actually based on the case of the real-life Bling Ring, a group of California teens who burgled roughly $3 million from the Hollywood elite between October 2008 and August 2009.

All of which is to say that the details of what you're about to witness have probably been changed to protect the innocent...not that there's a lot of innocence on display here. The Bling Ring is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 14.
