Today, the Weinstein Company has released a first theatrical trailer for “The Giver”. Lois Lowry’s classic story — one of the first modern dystopic tales written explicitly for a younger audience — takes place in a future where all of the unpleasant, messy aspects of life (war, pain, difference, feelings in general) have been wiped away. Have a look at the trailer in the video archive and captures in the image library. Are you excited? Share your thoughts in the comments.

    Calm down Sonja. We are all entitled to our opinions, whether you agree with them or not.

    Calm down, people.
    Parts like Thatcher or Violet Weston aren’t out there every year and even if The Giver fails, she has threee other movies out this year.
    Not everything can be a hit.
    I don’t know anything about the book, so I’m not upset as others. Lucky me.
    But we’ll see if this is REALLY a fail. Juging by just one (teaser) trailer is never right.

    This one looks like a dud from the trailer, and I don’t like Meryl’s look. I guess we’re used to seeing her in powerful lead roles; this one looks like she may have a smaller role. Time will tell.

    not my favourite kind of movie… but you never now!

  • Izzy

    This looks pretty good, my type of movie (and unlike anything Meryl’s ever been in!). I’m wondering if anyone knows the mpaa rating (can’t find it anywhere)?

  • Jane

    It’s not the kind of movie I normally go to see in the theatre but I might give it a try. The story behind it does sound kind of interesting.
    It just occured to me that this is the first Science Fiction movie Meryl has been in (if we don’t count A.I.)

  • Emma

    I’m not sure about this movie…

  • Harry

    I am excited even though Meryl’s role might be small. The trailer looks great. I hope it turns out well!
