Dave Eggers’s novel The Circle was released in 2013, but in just three years, the premise of the book has already taken on a more sinister feel.
The movie adaptation, directed by James Ponsoldt (The End of the Tour) stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and John Boyega, and the new trailer offers a look at tech company the Circle, which seems like a mash of Apple and Google. There’s a passionate CEO type, played by Hanks; Watson’s Mae Holland, a customer service rep who becomes a celebrity by streaming her life; and Boyega as co-worker Kalden, who tries to get Mae to see just how deep the company’s surveillance goes. Why yes, it’s sort of like an episode of Black Mirror.
As Hanks’s character says: “We will see it all. If it happens, we’ll know.”
The Circle hits theaters April 2017.
