The previous trailers released for The Giver have only teased the story. This full trailer presents the story elements without giving away too much. If this trailer has you hooked I recommend not watching anymore as those will likely give away a lot more.
The Giver is based on a book by Lois Lowry. It's been a passion project for Jeff Bridges who has been working to get it made for 15 years. Bridges, who plays The Giver, originally intended for his father, Lloyd Bridges, to be the title character. After Lloyd passed away in 1998, Jeff stepped in to fill the role.
The central character of Jonas is played by Brenton Thwaites. The cast includes Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, Cameron Monaghan, and Taylor Swift.
The Giver remembers the past to save the future August 15 (USA).
