‘The Bling Ring’ Poster Shows Us Emma Watson’s Shades
The first poster for Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Bling Ring‘ has arrived and rather than showcase star Emma Watson, it goes for something simpler, subtler and a bit more cool than a giant floating head. Check it out below!
In place of the actual cast, the poster gives us a look at their sunglasses, labeling each of them with the role their owner plays in the titular gang, a group of teenage girls who track celebrities on the internet and rob their homes (it’s based on a true story, of course). All of your typical heist movie roles are on display: there’s “the Mastermind,” “the Lookout,” “the Wild Card” and so on.
Is 2013 the year of the teenaged criminal? ‘The Bling Ring’ is arriving hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed ‘Spring Breakers‘ and the two of them feel like they’d make one heck of a double feature, exploring fame obsessed teens as they bend and break the law. We’ll know for sure when the film arrives sometime this Summer, but it’s widely expected to play at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where Coppola has been a regular.
In the meantime, here’s that poster:
