The Giver doesn’t come out for almost four months, and the anticipation is starting to get to me. In their latest effort to drive me crazy, the Weinstein Company has released a new sixty second trailer for the film. I don’t think there’s any new footage, but this time they have gotten the tone just right. I had my doubts for awhile after the first trailer, but they have managed to convince me. I’ve even come around on the Taylor Swift casting decision. I think she’ll do just fine as Rosemary. Plus, can anyone play grumpy/wise like Jeff Bridges can? The answer is no. No, they cannot.
The Giver will be in theaters August 15, 2014. It is directed by Phillip Noyce and also stars Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Meryl Streep, Cameron Monaghan, and Odeya Rush. It hits U.S. theaters on August 15.
