Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep look stern (in black and white) while Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush look pensive (in color) on this new theatrical poster for The Giver. Based on the best-selling book by Lois Lowry, The Giver was directed by Phillip Noyce and features Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, and Taylor Swift.
The Giver opens in theater on August 15, 2014.
The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.
