A new trailer for EuropaCorp’s upcoming thriller The Circle hit the web and it features Tom Hanks as a charismatic founder of a tech company who claims that the key to human perfection is complete transparency. “Without secrets, without the hoarding of knowledge and information, we can finally realize our potential,” touts Hanks’ character in the trailer.
James Ponsoldt directed and adapted the film based on a bestseller by Dave Eggers. It also stars Emma Watson as a promising social media executive who lands a job at the Circle and becomes entangled in the new-age ideology. “It’s the chaos of the web made elegant,” Watson’s character postulates when asked how she would describe the company.
John Boyega, Karen Gillan and Patton Oswalt co-star in the film, which EuropaCorp is releasing in theaters April 28.
The Circle is produced by Gary Goetzman and Hanks for Playtone, Anthony Bregman for Likely Story and Ponsoldt. The pic was fully financed by Image Nation Abu Dhabi and is presented by Image Nation in association with Parkes MacDonald Productions.
