The first trailer for The Giver has been released! The film was produced by the Weinstein Company, and stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, and Brenton Thwaites. It is an adaptation of the novel by Lois Lowry.
What are you all thinking of it so far? It seems a bit colorful and…futuristic for my taste from the get go. I liked that in the book you really didn’t know where the story was taking place in time. It also seems to have aged up the main characters in order to make the film more mature and add romance. However, since this is the first trailer released (and first footage we’ve seen) I’ll hold my judgement!
