The Giver

Following the recent original horror flick Oculus, we're still due for quite the dose of newcomer Brenton Thwaites this year. The young actor leads the sci-fi indie The Signal, has a supporting role as Prince Phillip in Maleficent and stars alongside Jeff Bridges in the adaptation of the revered sci-fi novel The Giver. Now a new trailer has arrived for the film that also features Meryl Streep and Katie Holmes, combining some footage from the original teaser with some of the new bits that popped up in the recent featurette. While the book is held in high esteem, we're not sure if the film can offer anything fresh in the YA market.

Here's the new trailer for Phillip Noyce's The Giver straight from The Weinstein Company:

The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt) and adapted by newcomer Michael Mitnick. The haunting story, adapted from Lois Lowry's young adult book of the same name, centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep also star in the film. The Weinstein Company will release The Giver starting August 15th.
