Arriving online this Bank Holiday Monday is a batch of brand new stills from The Circle – director James Pondsoldt’s (The Spectacular Now) forthcoming social media thriller – which sports a truly brilliant cast.
Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Patton Oswald, and Ellar Coltrane lead the adaptation of Dave Eggers’ celebrated novel, which is one of our 20 Must-See Movies Still to Come in 2017. The beguiling and ethically-charged picture details a shady internet corporation, who use their positions of global power and recognition to gain intimate access into their many users’ lives. Check out the new images right here…
When Mae (Emma Watson) is hired to work for the world’s largest and most powerful tech & social media company, she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company’s founder, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family and that of humanity.
The Circle opens in US theatres on 28th April.
