Emma Watson raids Paris Hilton’s pad in new trailer for The Bling Ring

"I want to rob," declares the former Harry Potter actress in the latest footage from Sofia Coppola's movie based on the infamous Hollywood gang

Emma Watson’s doing a good job of shedding her Harry Potter persona in this new trailer for Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. The 23-year-old British actress – best known for playing Hermione Grainger in the big-screen adaptations of JK Rowling’s best-selling novels – can be seen grinding on a dancefloor, burgling houses and running from the cops as celebrity-obsessed teen Nicki.

The new footage sees Watson put on her finest Californian accent to portray a character loosely based on Alexis Neiers, a member of the notorious Bling Ring who raided the homes of Hollywood’s rich and famous in 2008-2009.  

Featuring cameo appearances from Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst, the film’s second trailer delves further into the background of the infamous burglaries, with Israel Broussard’s character Marc reflecting: “I just think we wanted to be a part of the lifestyle everybody kind of wants.” 

Co-starring Leslie Mann, Katie Chang, Claire Julie and Georgina Rock, The Bling Ring shows the materialistic gang carry out a string of raids on wealthy Hollywood residences with the police hot on their trail.
