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.

Emma Watson leads the cast of mostly smaller names, in the based-on-a-true-story tale of a group of young hipsters who started stealing from homes of the stars. They made off in millions worth of goods, had a great time but got caught, ending that brief taste at the top. “I don’t make the kind of movies that lend themselves to wide releases,” Coppola recently told DGA Quarterly, but unless this movie opens with black Ferrarri circling an empty racetrack, we think she might be wrong on this one. Watson and co. partying like there's no tomorrow? Yeah, we think this might interest an audience a bit bigger than the local arthouse.

So get wild with the new trailer below. "The Bling Ring" is cooler than you on June 14th.

    Cmon! Spring Breakers just came out and has been making rounds for a year and then theres Girls.....the influences are so transparent. This and the keanu version of this movie both seem like theyre just cashing in on the hipster-finding-himself trope. Whatever.

    Having just watched "Perks of Being a Wallflower" again yesterday and now seeing this... I can only say Emma Watson is seriously talented.

    Something about the trailer seems "off" in a way that makes me think the finished product doesn't work, but here's hoping for the best.

    Did all imagination leave the planet earth in film? The ring leader just got sentenced in the news three weeks ago. I am gravitating toward works like "To the Wonder" or Shane Carruth's "Upstream Color" or strictly global cinema for this very reason. You are off the artistic roll call Sofia, Bling Ring? Really? God you suck... Give someone else a chance...

    Right, because a plotline like the one in "To the Wonder" is the product of such a novel imagination. Yay, another infidelity story. Such fun.

    PASS. if you want to see some bratty bitches being badasses see my movie instead.

    also, too bad Harris Savides last bit of work looks so... plain.

    @Lisa, there's no chance that's really Harmony Korine.

    Really? Shitting on another's film doesn't make you look any better.

    Yahoo trailers need to die in a fire. This is my cause.
