Emma Watson, big-screen bad girl?

The erstwhile Harry Potter star casts a rather sexy spell in the new trailer for Sofia Coppola's upcoming flick, The Bling Ring.

The teaser shows Watson and her group of fame-obsessed teenage thieves living the high life after breaking into the homes of Hollywood's rich and famous and making off with all kinds of jewelry, designer clothes, expensive watches, and other high-priced items.

"Based on actual events" as a caption in the trailer notes, the real Bling Ring used the Internet to ferret out the home addresses of their celebrity victims, who included the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Audrina Patridge

The group executed a string of notorious burglaries between October 2008 and August 2009 that netted them an estimated $3 million in luxury goods and cash.

Watson's character, Nicki, is based on ring leader Alexis Neiers, whose role in the thefts was discovered while she was filming the E! reality series Pretty Wild. She ended up pleading no contest to first degree burglary and serving one month of a six-month prison sentence.

The Bling Ring is slated to hit theaters on June 14.
