The trailer for the film adaptation of "The Circle," David Eggers' bestselling "satire of Silicon Valley ideology," has dropped, The Register reports. "The eponymous company at the heart of the novel is an amalgamation of Google and Facebook, and is set in the near future," the report states. "All privacy has been voluntarily surrendered for a synthetic 'community' and security." The film focuses on "the fate of two employees of The Circle, played by Karen Gillan and Emma Watson," the report continues. "Eggers' literary conceit is a device called the SeeChange camera, which the population enthusiastically adopts, allowing everyone to watch everyone else in real time," it adds. "There are no 4G notspots in the Circle, so the technology is a little ahead of the curve — but much else is realistic enough."
