Watch the Trailer for Dave Eggers’s The Circle Adaptation

Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and John Boyega will star in the tech-dystopia film

“Knowing is good. Knowing everything is better.” At least, that’s what Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks playing a Steve Jobs tech baron type) thinks in the first trailer to The Circle. The dystopian film about a world where social media has run amuck and people share every single thing thanks to tiny cameras is based on a 2013 Dave Eggers novel of the same title. If you are a fan of the TV show Black Mirror, then this trailer might get you excited for the film’s release next April.
