The gripping first trailer for the movie adaptation of Dave Eggers' best-selling novel, The Circle, has been released and it sees the start of Emma Watson's character's descent into a true tech dystopia.
The clip opens up with Tom Hanks channeling a Steve Jobs-like persona as the charismatic Eamon Bailey, owner of a technology company called The Circle. Mae Holland, played by Watson (who is also starring in the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, FYI,) is one of Bailey's latest employees after passing a job interview which included questions about The Beatles and video games.
We see Bailey on stage musing about his latest invention — a small, portable, high-quality camera that allows the company to view what's happening all around the world — while the camera keeps cutting away to disconcerting clips of Mae stranded in a body of water on a kayak in a storm. It ends with Bailey waxing, "Because knowing is good — but knowing everything is better."
The Circle was directed by James Ponsoldt and will also star John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Patton Oswalt and Bill Paxton. Watch the trailer above.
