The Circle trailer that released today offers a better look at the upcoming thriller starring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. Discover a world without secrets.
As The Circle trailer suggests, this modern thriller takes place in the no-too-distant future. Mae, played by Emma Watson, has been hired to work for the world’s largest tech and social media company. As she rises up through the company, the founder Eamon Bailey, played by Tom Hanks, encourages her to take part in a new experiment. As the experiment pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics, and personal freedom, it begins to affect her friends and family.
It’s a story that feels close at home with sites like Google recording every keystroke and photo that’s fed into it. The film is an adaptation of a book of the same name written by Dave Eggers. Directing the film is James Posoldt. Rounding out the cast is John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Ellar Coltrane, Bill Paxton, and Patton Oswalt.
The Circle is scheduled to open on April 28, and we couldn’t be more excited. For starters, Tom Hanks is not known for his villainous roles, so it will be interesting to see what he can do with it. We imagine he’ll be a villain you can’t help but fall in love with.
