Yahoo! has released a trailer for The Bling Ring, which will open Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival.

Emma Watson's character in Sofia Coppola's movie is light years away from the studious witch she played in the Harry Potter saga.

The British actress plays the leader of a group of teenagers who made the papers by robbing the homes of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and Paris Hilton. The trailer depicts such a scene, punctuated by Sleigh Bells' Crown on the Ground.

For her fifth movie, Sofia Coppola sought inspiration in real-life events, the actions of the Burglar Bunch, a group of teenagers who robbed Hollywood VIPs and got away with a haul worth a total of $3M between 2008 and 2009.

Apart from Emma Watson, the cast of The Bling Ring includes Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Erin Daniels and Katie Chang. Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst will make cameos as themselves. The movie is set for a summer release.
