(CBS NEWS) – Hermione Granger, this isn’t. Emma Watson is nothing like her “Harry Potter” alter-ego in the latest trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring.”


The film, due out May 16, is based on the true story of a group of teens who robbed the homes of celebrities, including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

Watson’s character, Nikki, and her fame-obsessed pals want to live the Hollywood lifestyle — and decide to steal from the stars.

“C’mon, let’s go to Paris’ — I want to rob,” Nikki declares. And they do just that, raiding the socialite’s home while she’s out of town.
