Starring Emma Watson, John Boyega, Karen Gillan and Tom Hanks as the Steve Jobs character you never knew you wanted, the trailer for THE CIRCLE is now here for your consumption! Join them!

Whoa! Early Sonic over early Mario? I don’t know about that, but it’s great to see Emma Watson in a role that’s not so high-profile, and acting opposite Tom Hanks, no less. I’m not familiar with the novel on which this is based, but this seems like it could turn out to be a decent cautionary tale, if not an extended episode of Black Mirror. In any case, I love the idea of seeing Hanks in somewhat of a villainous role, so I hope they push that as the film goes on!

THE CIRCLE will open in theaters on April 28, 2017.
