Thanks to The Weinstein Company, here’s the first official trailer of The Giver, the upcoming science-fiction drama movie directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Cameron Monaghan, and Taylor Swift:
Within this perfect world there is a dark secret…
Receive your destiny!
“The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community.”
The film is based on Lois Lowry’s young adult novel. Never heard about it before, but am totally hooked by the trailer. Impatient to see the film, and I am going to order the book right away!
The release date of The Giver is set to August 15, 2014.
