This week saw the release of the new trailer for The Circle, based on the best-selling book by Dave Eggers and due to hit theaters on April 28. Tom Hanks and Emma Watson star in the psychological thriller about a woman (Watson) who lands her dream job at a giant tech company, only to find things becoming increasingly stranger and crazier as her role at the company grows.
For more on the film and its fantastic ensemble (including Hanks, Watson, John Boyega, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan and Patton Oswalt), Fandango recruited director James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now, The End of the Tour) to provide commentary over the new trailer, detailing the story and why he thinks the film is more relevant now than it’s ever been. “Dave’s book, which felt like science fiction when it came out, really feels like science fact now,” he said.
First up, here’s the new trailer.
