thegiver-trailer2-060414Get ready to get chills!

The brand new trailer for The Giver premiered today on Yahoo! Movies and we’re given a better look at the drab society that Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) lives in and at Meryl Streep who plays the Chief Elder who will do anything to stop Jonas and his defiance.

The trailer is beautiful and in black and white until The Giver (Jeff Bridges) opens up Jonas’ eyes to the world that existed before society was forced to forget everything. The transformation to color is beautiful and the dynamic between the black & white and color really helps bring the story to life.

In the trailer, we also get a better look at the characters played by Cameron Monaghan, Odeya Rush, Alexander Skarsgard & Katie Holmes.
