Watch: First Trailer for 'The Circle' Adaptation Starring Emma Watson
Love it when we get surprises like this. EuropaCorp USA has revealed a trailer for the adaptation of the best-selling book The Circle, about a mysterious tech company that hires a young woman who learns there's more to this place than it seems. The book by Dave Eggers is very popular right now, and they made this adaptation very quickly. Emma Watson stars, along with Tom Hanks as the CEO of the company, plus Karen Gillan, John Boyega, Bill Paxton, Patton Oswalt, Glenne Headly, Ellar Coltrane, Ellen Wong, Poorna Jagannathan and Nate Corddry. This is the latest film from one of my favorite directors, James Ponsoldt, of The Spectacular Now and End of the Tour. And it looks damn good. Dive in.
Here's the first official trailer for James Ponsoldt's The Circle, originally from USA Today:
A woman lands a job at a powerful tech company called the Circle, where she becomes involved with a mysterious man. Adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name. "The Circle's game changer: SeeChange cameras, glass eyeballs that fit anywhere and transmit real-time footage wirelessly. Mae steps into the SeeChange world and instantly explodes from entry-level employee to being famous worldwide for sharing her life, fears and ambitions with millions of strangers." The Circle is both written and directed by American filmmakers James Ponsoldt, of the films Off the Black, Smashed, The Spectacular Now and The End of the Tour previously. It's an adaptation of the book by Dave Eggers. EuropaCorp USA will release Ponsoldt's The Circle in theaters everywhere starting April 28th, 2017 next spring. How does this look?
