The Giver Trailer: From Great Suffering Came a Solution

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The latest The Giver trailer is a stunner. The film is based on the classic book by Lois Lowry, and director Phillip Noyce has impeccably captured the black and white and color tones of that novel.

We wondered how he would do it, given what we saw in the first The Giver trailer, and that question was answered with this latest teaser.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift, and follows a young man (Thwaites) who questions life in his utopian society.

When he meets Bridges’ character, he opens a door to the past that shows that the world wasn’t always so black and white. It was, in fact, filled with color and most importantly -- emotion.

Thwaites’ discovery is clearly a threat, and Streep’s leader starts to exert her power, putting pressure on his family to keep him in line.

We cannot wait for The Giver to hit theaters August 15.
