The movie will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival next month


Emma Watson plays a very different role to her Harry Potter character Hermione Granger in new film The Bling Ring.

The actress licks her lips while dancing in a club before raunchily twirling her body around a pole in a minute-long trailer for the flick.

Emma, 23, plays teen robber Nicki in the movie, which is based on the true story of a group of fame-obsessed youngsters who burgled a number of celebrities’ homes between 2008-2009.

In stills from the movie, Emma strips down to her underwear, holds a gun and smokes a roll-up cigarette.

It was announced today that The Bling Ring – which is directed by Sofia Coppola – will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

Other features included in the line-up include Baz Lurhmann‘s The Great Gatsby and new Ryan Gosling offering Only God Forgives.
