Based on the best-selling novel by Nicola Yoon, Stella Meghie-directed Everything, Everything tells the romantic tale of Madeline (Amandla Stenberg) and Olly (Nick Robinson). Though the story features classic "young love" movie tropes, the pair's story is far from ordinary. Madeline, 18, suffers from severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID)— a condition which forbids her from leaving her home. She is under the constant care of her nurse and her physician mother (Anika Noni Rose). When Olly moves in next door, everything seems to change for Madeline as she explores the possibility of life, and love, outside of the confines of her home. Everything, Everything premieres May 19.

Starring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks and directed by James Ponsoldt, The Circle, adapted from Dave Eggers' 2013 novel, follows Mae (Watson) as she lands her dream job at The Circle—an influential technology and social media company run by Eamon Bailey (Hanks).
