Headlined by Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, The Circle hits Blu-ray and DVD on August 1. The picture is co-written by James Ponsoldt and Dave Eggers (Hanks starred last year in A Hologram for the King which was based on the Eggers novel).
The story centers on Mae (Watson), an intelligent woman who lands a job at the world’s most powerful tech and social media company. After rising through the ranks thanks to support from the company’s founder Eamon Bailey (Hanks), Mae gradually realizes that being part of an all-powerful company can wreak havoc on humanity. Late actor Bill Paxton and Karen Gillan also star in the flick.
