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.

There’s still some questionableRead More

This, at least, is the reasoning the Elders (led by Meryl Strep) give. ButRead More
