EuropaCorp has just released the first trailer for the James Ponsoldt-directed “The Circle”. The adaption of the Dave Eggers novel stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Patton Oswalt and Bill Paxton.
The story focuses on Mae Holland (Watson), a recent college graduate, as she joins a powerful Internet monopoly called the Circle. The company 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.
It kinda reminds me of a creepier version of “The Social Network” and I like it.
Ponsoldt, Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Anthony Bregman will produce.
