Based on the best selling, critically acclaimed novel of the same name, The Giver stars Brenton Thwaites as Jonas, a young man living in seemingly perfect community that is told he will be the Receiver of Memory and works with the current owner of that title, played by Jeff Bridges, and learns the harsh truths of the world. Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Swift(?) co-star. The movie is directed by Phillip Noyce, who previously worked on Salt and the Harrison Ford Jack Ryan movies. I feel like this is one of those movies that is going to catch a lot of shit from fans of the book, with it’s generic visuals and Taylor Swift stunt casting. It’s out in August this year and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
