Something feels off with James Ponsoldt's "The Circle." Watch the trailer and tell me you're not disappointed that this is Ponsoldt's follow-up to his first two impressive films ("The Spectacular Now," and "The End of the Tour.") The story feels too facile and by-the-books for Ponsoldt. Principal photography wrapped-up in 2015. It was rumored to come out last year, but then reshoots happened this January. So "The Circle" is coming out only 4 months after the reshoots. Yikes.
The film is set for release April 28th, 2017. Don't expect the reviews to be kind. I'm already confident that this movie will be a disaster.
