About feeling like she should work on her acting (2007): "Never having done an audition before and never having done any professional acting and going into the biggest film franchise of all time, I've kind of come from nowhere and gone straight in at the top. Where do I go from here? I feel like I need to backtrack and work my way through again. I'd be really interested to kind of train properly because I feel I shouldn't be here. I should have done so much more."

First Trailer for The Circle

The first trailer for James Ponsoldt’s thriller The Circle debuted on USA Today. Based on Dave Egger’s 2013 novel, the film stars Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Patton Oswalt and Bill Paxton. The Circle opens in theaters on April 28, 2017.

 

When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users’ personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company’s modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can’t believe her luck, her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world—even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public. What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.

Emma at Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit

Emma Watson attended the 2016 Museum Of Modern Art Film Benefit – Tom Hanks: A Tribute at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on Tuesday. MoMA honored Tom Hanks for being “an enduring star and a steadfast screen presence for more than 30 years. Embodying the decent, hardworking American “everyman” since the early days of his career, Hanks is equally capable in screwball comedies, action films, and award-winning dramas. Beyond his many acting accomplishments—including two Academy Awards—he has stepped behind the camera as director and producer of several acclaimed film and television projects. His versatility often leads to comparisons with such screen icons as James Stewart, Cary Grant, and Jack Lemmon.”

Emma co-stars with Hanks in The Circle due out next April.

Emma Attends ‘City of Joy’ Premiere

Emma Watson attended the premiere of City of Joy on Friday evening in New York. Emma wrote on her instagram “A privilege to attend last night’s DocNYC Film Festival premiere of CITY OF JOY. The film tells the story of a remarkable centre, City of Joy, in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where women who have suffered horrific abuse learn to be leaders. The documentary also explores the friendships between Dr. Denis Mukwege (2016 Nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize), radical playwright and activist Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monolgoues) and human rights activist – and Director of the City of Joy – Christine Schuler-Deschryver, as they join forces to create this safe haven in the middle of violence-torn Eastern DRC. It is a powerful and beautiful film about the power of the human spirit and I urge you to seek it out: http://drc.vday.org/about-city-of-joy”

Emma and actress Thandie Newton and some of those followed in the documentary can be seen below.
