The Giver by Lois Lowry is a book I really love. If you haven't read it or are not familiar, it's a science fiction story about a young boy (played by Brenton Thwaites in the movie) who becomes the new "receiver". In the film, Jeff Bridges plays the "giver" of memories and trains the receiver. I'm trying to not give too much away because the fun is in the revelation of what those memories are.
We've got 3 images that feature Bridges, Taylor Swift, Katie Holmes, and Alexander Skarsgard. The costume design is an interesting mix of Amish, The Gap, and some Asian influence. The clothes all look very functional and practical which I think is a great take on the world.
At GeekTyrant we like to use the term "character poster" a lot. But as these are just of faces, I want to coin a new term, "face posters," and we've got 8 of them. The face posters are of the aforementioned actors and Meryl Streep, Cameron Monaghan, and Odeya Rush. The poster designs have only a slice of color which is an allusion to the colorless world seen by everyone but the receiver and the giver.
