A flood is coming, but not to worry, because Darren Aronofsky is building the boat, cinematically speaking. Next spring, the director brings his snake-filled, crazy demon angel version of "Noah" to the big screen, and now a few more images have arrived to hold us over, as we buy supplies for the trip.

The Bling Ring
American cinema seems preoccupied with the emptiness of excess, at least in the first half of 2013. Baz Luhrmann luxuriates in the meaningless wealth of "The Great Gatsby," while Harmony Korine put his own twisted spin on the dark soul of the American dream in "Spring Breakers." And now comes Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," another look at the at-any-cost pursuit of celebrity and the worship of brand names, but it doesn't bring anything new to a conversation that seems to have run out of things to say.

From the moment the "Harry Potter" series finished, Emma Watson has (mostly) steered clear of major tentpoles, opting instead to flex her muscles in smaller-scale films. While "My Week With Marilyn" didn't give her much to do except get walked all over, she shone in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and is pitch perfectly airheaded in "The Bling Ring." And right now in theaters, she gets what is arguably one of the best moments/sequences in "This Is The End." And oh yeah, she's getting all Biblical with Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" next spring. But now, she's ready for another franchise.

This Is The End, Hill, Rihanna
The end is nigh. To think it all started in 2007 as "Jay And Seth Versus The Apocalypse" a short YouTube clip starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as themselves if they were degenerate roommates living in squalor during the apocalypse. This of course evolved into what's now known as "This Is The End," an ensemble apocalypse comedy that's expanded to also include friends-playing-themselves like James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.

Okay, so as we noted in our review from the Cannes Film Festival, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" doesn't exactly break down the door of insight into the emptiness and excess of celebrity culture and the pursuit of it. That said, it does have some fun along the way. And most notably, it's Paris Hilton's house (and yes, it's actually Paris Hilton's house in the movie) that provides the thieving gang of teens the most enjoyment on their crime spree. In fact, they go back to it more than once...

As exciting as Cannes can be, it's sometimes dampened by the fact that the films currently being unveiled on the Mediterranean coast can take months or sometimes even more than a year to make it to U.S. shores. But fortunately, that isn't the case with everything; after the premiere of "Behind The Candelabra" this morning (read our review!), we only have to wait five days for it to screen on HBO, and coming up not too far behind is Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," which kicked off Un Certain Regard last week, and hits theaters in about three weeks.

Young people doing bad things seems to be a theme at the movies in 2013. During the spring we saw what happens when kids get rowdy, in "21 & Over" and Harmony Korine's cautionary tale of the American Dream, "Spring Breakers." The teen trouble will continue this summer as Sofia Coppola drops "The Bling Ring," which has a Cannes Film Festival premiere due in just a week or so. Some new images, a poster and the first review have just dropped online and all seem to point to good things.

Now freshly minted for the Cannes Film Festival, you can feel good about getting down and dirty with Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring." Yes, it's another movie about young girls trying to find themselves, only this time it isn't the suburban facade, international existential malaise, the empty pomp of royal life or soul-sucking Hollywood life her protagonist must navigate -- instead it's celebrity culture. Someone has has got it, the kids in "The Bling Ring" want it.
