Emma Watson goes head-to-head with the geniuses of Silicon Valley in the first trailer for The Circle. Based on Dave Eggers book of the same name, the trailer centers on Watson’s Mae Holland–a new employee at the Circle who soon learns that her company is aiming to develop a complete surveillance state. Other scenes show Holland delving into the company’s server farm, finding herself stranded in a body of water and trying to serve a drone attack. The Circle also stars Tom Hanks and John Boyega and is set to hit theaters April 28, 2017.

Amy Schumer took to Instagram on Tuesday to respond to bodyshamers who think she’s not fit enough to play the titular role in the planned live-action Barbie film. “When I look in the mirror I know who I am. Im a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend,” Schumer captioned a photo of herself wearing a swimsuit at the beach. “I’m a bada** comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I’m fearless like you can be.” Schemer went on to thank her fans “for the kind words and support” and to send her “deepest sympathy…to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand.”

Very very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammys and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. Is it fat shaming if you know you're not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don't think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where's the shame? It's not there. It's an illusion. When I look in the mirror I know who I am. Im a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I'm a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I'm fearless like you can be. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support and again my deepest sympathy goes out to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand. I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice. It's that kind of response that let's you know something's wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it. Anyone who has ever been bullied or felt bad about yourself I am out there fighting for you, for us. And I want you to fight for yourself too! We need to laugh at the haters and sympathize with them. They can scream as loud as they want. We can't hear them because we are getting shit done. I am proud to lead by example. "I say if I'm beautiful, I say if I'm strong. You will not determine my story. I will" #thegirlwiththelowerbacktattoo
