The Giver Emotion trailer helps set the plot for the non-readers
If you are a fan of the wonderful book that is ‘The Giver’ then you do not need a trailer to introduce you to the strange, and provocative world that the film will take place in, but if you are new to the story, then this video can help you catch up.
The Weinstein Company released a new trailer for the film earlier today, showing off more of the film and its many, many stars. Among the A-List cast appearing in the film are Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift and the star of the film, Brenton Thwaites.
The haunting story of “The Giver” centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. “The Giver” is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel, which was winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
The film will have a public release on August 15, 2015.
