It might just be the basic white guy in me, but when I hear that Tom Hanks is starring in a movie, I automatically want to see the movie. It could be 90 minutes of Tom Hanks eating peanut butter out of a jar with a spork, and I’d pay $15 to watch it.
The Circle stars Emma Watson, John Boyega and Tom Hanks. Watson plays a smart young woman who lands a job at a powerful tech company. At first, it seems like a wonderful place to work, but “pretty soon, she starts to see the true cost of ultimate transparency.”
Also, Ellar Coltrane from Boyhood has a role in this film, so it’ll be fun to see him in a completely different character.
It’s scheduled to hit theaters April 28. It looks like the perfect movie for date night. Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…
“The Circle is a gripping modern thriller, set in the not-too-distant future, starring Emma Watson (“Harry Potter”), Tom Hanks (“Sully”) and John Boyega (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”). 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.”
