Tom Hanks Plays a Pseudo-Evil-Genius Tech Mogul in the Trailer for “The Circle”

In Tom Hanks’s latest part he takes on channelling his inner Steve Jobs, as a charismatic tech mogul, Eamon Bailey, owner of technology company called the Circle.

The flick is based on Dave Eggers’ book and centers around Mae Holland, a new employee at the Circle. Holland segues from answering questions on her favorite Beatle to video games at a job interview to stumbling upon the nefarious side of the Circle’s latest invention: a tiny, portable, high-quality camera.

Bailey speaks throughout the trailer, swaying listeners to become completely transparent, leaving nothing to secret and humanity will be better, “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.
