The First Official Trailer for ‘The Giver’ Is Here [VIDEO]
The wait is over! The highly anticipated trailer for everyone’s middle-school favorite ‘The Giver’ is here — and it promises to be an action-packed, A-list studded film.
The fast-paced trailer sets the tone for the movie, which is based on the best-selling YA novel by Lois Lowry. The plot centers around Jonah (hottie Brenton Thwaites), a young man living in a futuristic, seemingly utopian society. As Jonah comes of age, he soon starts to realize his community’s past — and through the help of the Giver, its horrors — and must come to terms with his special gift… and his dystopian society.
The film is littered with A-list celebs, including Taylor Swift (if you pause the video at 0:44 seconds, you can barely make out a glimpse of her as Rosemary, the brunette daughter of The Giver), Meryl Streep (the Elder), Katie Holmes (Jonas’ mother) and Jeff Bridges (the Giver.)
Though T. Swift’s appearance in the trailer is, er, swift (we couldn’t resist!) the singer couldn’t wait to share the trailer with her fans, tweeting:
