While known to film fans mostly through her famous father, legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola has come into her own over the last decade, building a reputation for making films in a different vein than the elder Coppola, but which manage to garner as much critical praise. Many people were thus interested when news broke that Sofia would be tackling the real-life story of a group of California teenagers who stole from celebrities. Titled The Bling Ring, Coppola once again takes on writing and directing duties, working for the first time with Harry Potter star Emma Watson, who’s joined onscreen by Taissa Farmiga, Leslie Mann, Israel Broussard, and Katie Chang. A new trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.
