Check Out This Trailer for The Giver
First look at The Giver looks promising...

The first trailer for The Giver, the big screen adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1993 novel of the same name, has just hit the web and, although lacking in any real substance, it sure does look interesting.

Directed by Phillip Noyce, who also helmed 2010's disappointing Salt, the novel has been adapted by Michael Mitnick and features an impressivelyhigh profile cast that includes names like Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard, Jeff Bridges, Taylor Swift and Katie Holmes, with Australian BrentonThwaites (who you might remember from Maleficent) in the lead role.

The Giver is slated for a North American release on August 15th, while a UK date has yet to be confirmed by The Weinstein Company, and it follows Jonas, a young man living out an unspectacular life in what appears to be a quaint and happy community built around the surpression of strong emotions. When Jonas begins to dig beneath the surface, though, following the assignment of his life role as Receiver of Memory, he starts to see that all is not as placid as it appears.
