“We experience life through our five senses. But what if everything you ever thought, everything you ever knew, was just the surface of what lies beyond?” asks Jeff Bridges in the new featurette for the Weinstein Co.’s “The Giver.”
Although the film’s first trailer was in color, new footage suggests that the movie will maintain the setup from Lois Lowry’s controversial 1993 novel of the same name in which only freed people see in color and those under the influence of emotion-checking treatments see the world in black and white. Lowry also appears in the featurette to explain some of the concepts behind the story, including the idea of manipulating human memory.
The clip reveals a black-and-white scene featuring Bridges’ titular character and Brenton Thwaites’ Jonas as Bridges states, “There is no way for me to prepare you for what I’m going to do now.”

The Weinstein Company has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for director Philip Noyce’s (Salt) adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel The Giver. The story takes place in a utopian society where all memories of the past reside with a sage figure known as “The Giver”. Jeff Bridges plays the titular character and Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) plays a young boy who has been selected to be the new Giver. In this featurette, Lowry explains the inspiration that led to her writing the book as we also get a look at new footage from the film. It’s been a long time since I read the novel, but I don’t particularly remember the world being so blatantly science-fiction-looking. It makes sense that The Weinstein Company would want the marketing to mirror a film as successful as The Hunger Games, but it risks making oblivious audiences think The Giver is a »

How Jason Segel Met Suri's Mother? Not really.

Her latest film, satire "Miss Meadows," which will appear at Tribeca this year, stars Katie Holmes as a "proper lady" gone bad. Hopkins also told Indiewire that getting the film done required "touches of a wand." Tell us about yourself? I came to Hollywood from Sandusky, Ohio to work as an actress. I taught exercise classes for years and drove a lawn mower for a car until I got my first "big break." I then got cut out of three major films. My twin was studying to be a shrink and figured I made up all these scenarios of being cast then cut out up as a way of survival. My mother lovingly told me "you're a failure come home, »
