Meryl Streep as dystopian society leader in

PanARMENIAN.Net - A brand new trailer for a new young adult book adaptation, "The Giver", is unleashed. It gives a better understanding of how Lois Lowry's fictional dystopian society, where there is no pain and conflict, is portrayed in the film. The extremely-organized world is shown in black-and-white footage with Meryl Streep as a strict leader, AceShowbiz said.

In this film directed by Phillip Noyce ("Salt"), Jeff Bridges is tapped to play the keeper of all ancient memories called The Giver. He takes a protege played Brenton Thwaites under his wing. During his training, the young boy starts to see colors and gradually learns the disturbing truth behind the seemingly ideal community he's living in.

The movie is set to make its way out in the United States starting August 15. Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, and Taylor Swift are among the supporting cast.
