Watch The Circle Trailer

1

EuropaCorp has debuted the first trailer for The Circle, James Ponsoldt’s upcoming feature adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel starring Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan, and Ellar Coltrane.

Eggers’ novel focuses on a young woman (Watson) who is hired for a big job in an Internet monopoly called the Circle, which links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency.

The novel turns into a contemporary thriller about the perils of life in a digital age where personal data is collected, sifted and monetized and used for surveillance, rendering privacy obsolete.

The feature adaptation has been written and will be directed by Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now). The Circle is being produced by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman for Playtone, Anthony Bregman for Likely Story, and Ponsoldt. The film will  be released on April 28, 2017.
