It looks like 2017 is going to be some year for Emma Watson, what with Disney's Beauty And The Beast and, now, The Circle with Tom Hanks and John Boyega.

Based on the novel by Dave Eggers, Watson plays a college graduate who joins a powerful Internet company that is working on ways to make the world more open and transparent. Of course, what begins as a sort of technological utopia pretty much turns into a Black Mirror-esque world of ultra-surveillance and so on.

The cast is pretty impressive, to say the least. As well as starring Tom Hanks, John Boyega and Watson, The Circle also has Karen Gillan, Bill Paxton, Boyhood's Ellar Coltrane and Patton Oswalt.

The Circle is slated for an April 2017 release in the US, with a summer release expected for Ireland.
