Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush and Cameron Monaghan play three teens with different motives in the latest released clips from Phillip Noyce‘s “The Giver.” Loosely based on the 1993 Newbery-winning novel by Lois Lowry, “The Giver” follows Jonas, a teenage boy (as opposed to a 12-year-old in the book) who lives in a black-and-white society that shields its inhabitants from experiencing the pleasures and sufferings of the real world.

Brenton Thwaites Odeya Rush
People.com has unveiled new stills of Brenton Thwaites and Odeya Rush from Phillip Noyce’s “The Giver.” Loosely based on the 1993 novel by Lois Lowry, “The Giver” stars Thwaites as Jonas, a teenage boy (as opposed to a 12-year-old in the book) who lives in a utopian society that shields him from experiencing the pleasures and sufferings of the real world.

the-signal
“The Signal” is truly one of those movies that’s hard to describe, much less write a coherent review about. So many ideas are thrown into a sci-fi blender and not all of them stick. Director William Eubank does appear to have bitten off slightly more than he can chew with all the plots and themes that don’t quite tie together very smoothly, but, aided by strong leads in Brenton Thwaites and Olivia Cooke, there’s something so watchable and compelling about it, it’s hard to write off completely. Thwaites and CookeRead More
Brenton Thwaites The Signal
Brenton Thwaites finds himself being interrogated by Laurence Fishburne in a new clip released from William Eubank‘s sci-fi thriller “The Signal.” The film, which debuted earlier this year at Sundance, follows two hacking enthusiasts/MIT students Nick (Thwaites) and Jonah (Beau Knapp) as they travel from Cambridge to Caltech to drop off Nick’s girlfriend Haley (Olivia Cooke). However, when they get a lead on their rival hacker Nomad’s location, they decide to change their plans and track the person down — which clearly ends up being the wrong decision. As seenRead More
the-giver
Yet another new trailer for “The Giver” has been released, and it just may be the best one yet. There’s tons of new footage from the film here, including our first real look at Cameron Monaghan, who plays Brenton Thwaites’ Jonas’ best friend Asher. The story is also explained really for the first time, with how Lois Lowry’s seemingly perfect society came to be, under the guidance of Meryl Streep’s town Elder, and how Jeff Bridges, as the Giver, opens Jonas’ eyes to humanity’s true history. There’s still some questionableRead More
Elle Fanning Maleficent
Elle Fanning‘s Princess Aurora confronts Angelina Jolie‘s “Maleficent” about the infamous curse as seen in the latest released clip from Disney’s live-action reinvention of “Sleeping Beauty.” The Robert Stromberg-directed film depicts the 1959 animated classic that many generations of people grew up with as an origin story about the wicked fairy (Jolie) rather than about the slumbering princess (Fanning) who is cursed to a “sleep-like death” set for her 16th birthday. Written by Linda Woolverton, the film promises to reveal to audiences the real reason — as opposed to beingRead More
Brenton Thwaites Posters
New characters posters for Phillip Noyce‘s “The Giver” have been released today to introduce us to the ensemble of characters in the forthcoming young adult adaptation. Based on Lois Lowry’s 1994 Newbery award-winning novel, “The Giver” follows a teenage boy (as opposed to a 12-year-old in the book) named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) who lives in a utopian society that shields him from experiencing and learning the pleasures and sufferings of the real world. But that all changes when he is summoned as the successor of The Giver (Jeff Bridges), aRead More
THE GIVER
Some new stills from upcoming YA adaptation “The Giver” were released today via Just Jared, giving us our first really good look at Taylor Swift in the film, along with new looks at Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, Odeya Rush, Katie Homes and Alexander Skarsgard. Swift plays Rosemary in the film, daughter to Bridges’ titular Giver character, and it seems likely her role won’t be too huge.
