WATCH: New ‘The Circle’ Trailer With Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and John Boyega

The Circle trailer

A new trailer for the upcoming thriller “The Circle” is here. It features an unusually suspicious Tom Hanks, and John Boyega and Emma Watson as his employees. The trailer starts off idyllic, but quickly seems to hint that all is not quite right in this strange world.

Karen Gillan, Ellar Coltrane (“Boyhood”) and Patton Oswalt also act in the film.

James Ponsoldt directs, from an adapted script based on Dave Eggers’ novel of the same name. Danny Elfman (“American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) provides the score.

The book‘s official synopsis is as follows:

When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, 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. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO.

Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

Boyega made waves with his role in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as Finn. He will reprise the role in December’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
