I don’t think we have to worry about Emma Watson becoming another Carrie Fisher, starring in one of the biggest franchises of all time and then spiraling down into a lackluster career filled with pills, booze and psychoses. I mean, those last three things are probably still in her future, but she’ll be working steadily while doing it I’m sure.
She’s already lined up as the one of the only XX-chromosomed characters in this summer’s apocalyptic comedy from Seth Rogen, This is the End, and now, the first teaser for her crime-drama The Bling Ring, a true story about a bunch of spoiled Hollywood kids who go and steal from richer, more spoiled Hollywood celebrities. It’s from Sofia Coppola, so count on a lot of Strokes and Phoenix songs on the soundtrack. But judging from this teaser, also count on a lot of shots of Emma doing things like licking her lips. So I already pre-ordered my tickets.
