Most Anticipated Movies Of 2017 And Why They Should Be Worth Your Time

The Circle isn’t even a movie that has much of a chance with me, and it’s still among the films I can’t wait to see. The story of the woman we use to infiltrate the inner workings of a tech company that wants to video everything that happens on Earth is one step too rote (oddly enough) for me to get behind, even when Dave Eggers (Away We Go, Promised Land) is the guy behind it.

That said, I do have to give Eggers some room to maneuver, and this one has Tom Hanks and Emma Watson, and James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now, The End of the Tour) directing.

That’s a lot already, but this is a film that will live or die by how well it can distance itself from every expectation audiences have going in.
