Lionsgate Films has announced the addition of the crime drama The Bling Ring to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film is written and directed by Sofia Coppola and stars Emma Watson, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julien, Taissa Farmiga, Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale, and Paris Hilton. The Bling Ring is currently available for pre-order online and will be available in stores everywhere beginning on September 17th.
The film takes place in the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles and follows a group of teenagers as they take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.”
In The Bling Ring, Oscar-winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as youthful fun spins out of control, revealing a sobering view of our modern culture.
The Bling Ring was released in June of 2013 and grossed over $7 million in worldwide box office to date.
Lionsgate Films has not released any details concerning the exact tech specs and special features that will be included with the disc.
