Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' shines in limited release

Sofia Coppola’s take on a real-life group of San Fernando Valley youths who burglarized celebrity homes in 2009 debuted in limited release and grossed $210,001, according to an estimate from distributor A24 Films. Playing in two theaters in New York and three in Los Angeles, the film earned a healthy per-theater average of $42,000. Though the movie is set in Hollywood’s backyard, the film did the most business this weekend at a cinema near New York University.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the film about a gaggle of teens who live for fashion and idolize Paris Hilton is so far appealing mostly to young females.
