Tom Hanks Has a Sinister Agenda with Emma Watson in New Trailer for THE CIRCLE
A new trailer has been released for Tom Hanks and Emma Watson's new privacy invasion thriller The Circle. The story is set in a world where people's privacy is invaded and exploited through modern technology. Of course, it's all packaged and branded as a positive universal operating system that will usher in a new age of civility and transparency. As you might expect, things really aren't as they seem. It looks like a great film that will tell an intriguing story.
The film comes from director James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now and The End of the Tour), and it's an adaptation of the book written by Dave Eggers. The film also boasts a great supporting cast that includes John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Ellar Coltrane, Bill Paxton, and Patton Oswalt. As a fan of pretty much everyone that is in this film, I've gotta see it! It will also be interesting to see Hanks play a villainous role because that's something we rarely get to see him do.
The Circle is a gripping modern thriller, set in the not-too-distant future, starring Emma Watson (“Harry Potter”), Tom Hanks (“Sully”) and John Boyega (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”). When Mae (Emma Watson) is hired to work for the world’s largest and most powerful tech & social media company, she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company’s founder, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family and that of humanity.
The Circle is set to open on April 28th.
