Trailer: “The Giver”

The Weinstein Company

Let’s talk about how great of a day this has been for trailers. First Peanuts, now we get a look at The Giver! I remember reading Lois Lowry’s 1993 classic back in 8th grade. It was the first book in a while that I enjoyed so much I couldn’t put it down. Since then (and that was in 2006), there was chatter about a movie adaptation, but set backs kept happening. Finally, production gets going and here we are.

Producer Jeff Bridges himself plays the title character and Meryl Streep plays the questionable Chief Elder. Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) plays protagonist Jonas, and Alexander Skarsgård and Katie Holmes play his parents. My biggest problem was that Taylor Swift was in the movie (she plays Rosemary), but thankfully for me, there’s not much of her in the trailer (lol can you find her?) . Hopefully that’s an indicator of how much she’s in the movie.
