If Google, the NSA, and Apple formed a partnership (and they probably have) it would look like Dave Egger’s The Circle. The new trailer is highly unsettling and brings up a great deal of questions about how much information we give up with our technological advances. The cast is utterly incredible. The film stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan, and Ellar Coltrane, all highly accomplished actors. It is just me, or is Tom Hanks getting really good at playing creepy?
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on the international best-seller by Dave Eggers, The Circle is a thrilling modern morality tale starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and John Boyega. As she rises through the ranks of the world’s largest tech and social media company, The Circle, Mae (Watson) is encouraged by company founder Eamon Bailey (Hanks) to live her life with complete transparency. But no one is really safe when everyone is watching.
The Circle comes to theaters April 28, 2017.
