OK, so this is pretty much the best morning ever… and we’re not just saying that because it’s Friday (although that’s awesome, too). We’re exploding with excitement because we’ve got a double dose of The Bling Ring action coming straight to you, all within the next 12 hours! Hopefully you’re already WELL AWARE that we’re debuting an exclusive clip and chatting with the film’s stars Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien at 11 PM EST tonight as the final MTV Movie Awards Sneak Peek Week show on MTV.com. So grab your friends, stock up on popcorn, and make room on the couch, because that’s going down later, but first, peep the poster for The Bling Ring right here! The brand spanking new teaser image just landed, and it’s throwing some MAJOR shade. Five different kinds of shade, in fact, one for each member of the infamous sticky-fingered crew.
Rather than going with the traditional portrait shot, director Sofia Coppola opted for something way more mysterious, representing each of the character’s roles in the Hollywood heist as specific sunglasses styles. There’s the “The Mastermind,” “The Lookout,” “The Right Hand Man, “The Wild Card,” and “The Star.” We’ve already spotted the cast sporting their frames recently in the video teaser and in that very first promo shot almost a year ago, so it’s obvious these shades play an integral part to the flick (Emma even wore them on her in-character British GQ cover). While we have a feeling that “The Mastermind” at the top symbolizes Katie Chang’s character Rebecca, who is the leader of the pack, and “The Right-Hand man” is Israel Broussard’s Marc, because he’s obviously a dude, the characters connected to the rest of the designs remain somewhat of a mystery. Who do YOU think is who? Let us know in the comments, and watch the final Sneak Peek Week show tonight at 11 PM EST!
