First of all, Sofia Coppola really is directing a live-action film version of “The Little Mermaid.” Secondly, I don’t think it’s going to be that far off from what this Funny or Die spoof — starring AnnaSofia Robb and Evan Peters — presents. A melancholy hipster romance, set to great music with lots of late-afternoon sun glare? Yep, looks and sounds like a Sofia Coppola film! (That’s not a diss — I’ll be first in line to see the real thing.) [i09]
When thinking about the list of celebrities to play me in a movie of my own life, Emma Watson is pretty close to the top of my list. Apparently Alexis Neiers — one of the inspirations behind the new film “The Bling Ring,” directed by Sofia Coppola — does not feel the same way. The bratty former reality star vows to shed light on the truth about “The Bling Ring,” both the movie and the original Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, in her upcoming book. Keep reading »
I’m not even a Sofia Coppola superfan, but I’m still anxiously awaiting parking my mall-jean-clad butt in a theater seat to watch “The Bling Ring” about the Hollywood teenagers who broke into celebrities’ homes and steal their Acne jean. Maybe it’s because Coppola actually filmed inside Paris Hilton’s weird home with pictures of herself all over the place? Or maybe because it stars Emma Watson pole dancing in stripper heels and Taissa Farmiga, the girl from “American Horror Story” season one? Or because Leslie Mann made a vision board of Angelina Jolie’s life? Gahhh, this is going to be amazing. [YouTube]
Time for your Adderall, everyone! The full theatrical trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” starring Emma Watson, has arrived! This. Looks. Stupid. Goooooood.
“The Bling Ring” has sounded promising since news first relayed that Sofia Coppola would be adapting the story for the silver screen. It goes something like this: a band of spoiled, fame-obsessed Hollywood teenagers break into the homes of stars like Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton. It’s a startling (and, as you’ll recall, true) tale of celebrity, greed, and youth in the age of the Internet, which the teens used to track down the whereabouts of their high-profile victims. The first photo of the cast hit the web this week via Entertainment Weekly, and I must say, they’ve styled the naughty mid-aughties kids to a T: Emma Watson looks every bit the young, wealthy heathen, replete with a fur vest and, naturally, the requisite how-old-are-you-why-do-you-have-that Birkin bag. The rest of the cast is spot-on, too: attractive, expensively-dressed, big iced coffees, no-soul-behind-my-Dior-sunglasses stares … yeah, I’m really looking forward to this movie. It’s too bad it won’t be in theaters until next year. [Crushable]
