Trailer for The Giver

5 June 2014 2:03 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Containing elements from The Hunger Games and Divergent, even though the book on which it is based was written long before they were both a reality, The Giver imagines a world where society has eradicated all emotion and individuality, and only The Giver (Jeff Bridges) remembers what life used to be like. While many will roll their eyes at the another Ya adaption set in a dystopian future, this new trailer suggest director Philip Noyce (Salt, Patriot Games) has something a lot smarter and deeper up his sleeve. The use of black and white is a really nice touch, and there is a good cast, including Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, and Taylor Swift. Check it out below. Released: 15th August Follow @themoviebit !function(d,s,id){var »

5 June 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

A second trailer for Phillip Noyce's (Patriot Games, Salt) The Giver has been released, and it's the best look yet at the upcoming adaptation of Lois Lowry's Ya novel. I should warn you though, if you're a fan of the book, you might not like a few of the things revealed in the latest trailer. It looks like the filmmakers have deviated quite a bit from the source material, which is a shame because the book is fantastic. However there are a few things from the »

Brenton Thwaites Discovers Color in Full Trailer for Sci-Fi 'The Giver'

4 June 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"When the elders need guidance, I provide wisdom, using memories of the past." Following the batch of character posters that featured just a stripe of color running through the black and white images of various characters from The Giver, the sci-fi adaptation gets shown off even more in the full theatrical trailer. The film seems to unfold as a science fiction sort of Pleasantville as the black and white world of Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is invaded by color, as he learns more about the all too ideal community in which he lives, thanks to the wisdom of Jeff Bridges, the titular guide and keeper of wisdom from the past. Watch! Here's the full trailer for Phillip Noyce's The Giver, originally from Yahoo: The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt) and adapted by newcomer Michael Mitnick.

'Borat' Director Larry Charles Takes on 'The Man Who Sued God'

29 May 2014 8:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was revealed today that Larry Charles (Borat, The Dictator, TV's Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) will write a reimagined version of the cult Australian hit The Man Who Sued God for New Films International (Nfi) with an eye toward directing.

Nfi founder and President Nesim Hason and Mace Neufeld (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Sony's upcoming The Equalizer with Denzel Washington) are producing the new project with Sixth Sense Productions principals Richard Harding and Sam Feuer (The First Grader).

Charles' take on The Man Who Sued God is expected to veer from the original premise, which involves a former lawyer who had found happiness with a simpler life and career - until a natural disaster strikes and he is denied insurance money because it was 'an act of God'. He re-registers as a lawyer and sues the insurance company and the church under the guise of God, defending himself. »

Taylor Swift, Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, and more in new posters for 'The Giver'

23 May 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Phillip Noyce ("Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger") has turned has directorial eye towards "The Giver," an adaptation of the award-winning young adult novel from Lois Lowry which was originally published in 1993.  The film is readying for a release in mid-August, and today we have several new character posters to share with you.  As you will see in the attached gallery, the images are all black and white, save for a line of color traveling vertically in each, a line which always contains the character's eye (sometimes left, sometimes right).  It certainly feels symbolic, but what does it all mean? The answer may lie in the official description for the movie, which opens, "The haunting story of 'The Giver' centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment."  Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) has his eyes opened in the film when he begins »

Taylor Swift Has an Evil Twin on Eight 'The Giver' Character Posters

23 May 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even when there's plenty of characters that fans will know in films like X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Hobbit, The Avengers or other blockbuster films with ensemble casts, the idea of character posters is just wasteful and pointless. But here we are with some character posters for the adaptation of the revered sci-fi young adult novel The Giver. This has an impressive cast, but not necessarily worthy of character posters, especially when most general audiences don't know these characters. Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites & Taylor Swift looking like her evil twin from another dimension are here and more. Here's the character posters for Phillip Noyce's The Giver from Imp Awards: The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt) and adapted by newcomer Michael Mitnick.

The Blood Stream: Beneath Loch Ness

19 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Blood Stream mines the Internet for horror gold so you don’t have to, delivering streamable horror titles never before featured on Dread Central. Occasionally I’ll dredge up something good, maybe even great. To find those gems, I’ll have to sift through a lot of breathtakingly bad cinema. Enjoy!

Beneath Loch Ness has all the trappings of a Syfy original movie, though as far as I can tell that’s not how it came into existence. It has a plot built from half-assed homage and blatant rip-offs, obviously fake “location” settings, a Princess Bride synth score, and a list of B-movie has-beens longer than Nessie’s tail.

The framework here is basically a knock off of Jaws (of course it is), complete with a dopey local official who opposes preventing further deaths because it’s tourist season. The big difference is in this one, the incident that »

9 May 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oscar winners Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep are teaming with music star Taylor Swift, relative newcomers Brenton Thwaites ("Occulus," "Maleficent") and Odeya Rush ("The Odd Life of Timothy Green"), plus Alexander Skarsgård and Katie Holmes in the highly-anticipated Ya adaptation "The Giver." Some brand new photos from the film set the scene.  Based on Lois Lowry’s bestselling 1993 young adult novel, "The Giver" takes place in a futuristic utopia, where Jonas (Thwaites) is named the Receiver of Memory and begins to uncover the dark secrets beneath the seemingly perfect civilization.  Holmes and Skarsgård look mad and confused, respectively: "Crazy Heart" Oscar winner Bridges learns a new tune from country star Swift: Thwaites and Rush get symbolic with a nice Red Delicious from the Tree of Knowledge: Phillip Noyce ("Salt," "Patriot Games") directed.  "The Giver" opens August 15.   »

Watch: Brenton Thwaites is the Receiver in Short New 'The Giver' Spot

21 April 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the recent original horror flick Oculus, we're still due for quite the dose of newcomer Brenton Thwaites this year. The young actor leads the sci-fi indie The Signal, has a supporting role as Prince Phillip in Maleficent and stars alongside Jeff Bridges in the adaptation of the revered sci-fi novel The Giver. Now a new trailer has arrived for the film that also features Meryl Streep and Katie Holmes, combining some footage from the original teaser with some of the new bits that popped up in the recent featurette. While the book is held in high esteem, we're not sure if the film can offer anything fresh in the Ya market. Here's the new trailer for Phillip Noyce's The Giver straight from The Weinstein Company: The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt) and adapted by newcomer Michael Mitnick. »

Blu-ray, DVD Release – Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

19 March 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: June 10, 2014

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: Paramount Home Entertainment

Chris Pine (Star Trek: Into Darkness) takes on novelist Tom Clancy‘s popular CIA operative in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

The movie goes back to the beginning of Jack Ryan’s career, re-imagining his rise from soldier to analyst to full-fledged operative. He uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

Kevin Costner (Hatfields & McCoys) and Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina) also star in the film, as well as Sir Kenneth Branagh (My Week With Marilyn) playing the villain.

Kenneth Branagh also directed Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, hot off his success helming Thor. This thriller didn’t get quite as good a reception, though. Shadow Recruit garnered mixed reviews from both critics and moviegoers. Richard Roeper called the movie “the very definition of an Ok thriller.” And the film earned $50.3 million in theaters, »

Watch: Jeff Bridges is 'The Giver' in Ya Sci-Fi Adaptation First Trailer

19 March 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's something missing from our lives, something that has been stolen." With Divergent poised to hit theaters this weekend, a more iconic young adult sci-fi book is coming to theaters later this year with The Giver. Based on Lois Lowry's Newbury Medal winning book of the same name, the film follows Jonas (Brandon Thwaites), who lives in a content, future dystopian society that feels a little too familiar to the rest of the young adult adaptations we've been seeing. But after being given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory, he begins to unravel the secrets behind his community, and they might be rather disturbing. Maybe Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep will give this iconic tale the weight it needs. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Phillip Noyce's adaptation of The Giver from The Weinstein Company: The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, »

Star Wars cast: Ford, Fisher, Hamill before they were famous

14 March 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke earlier this week that five young up-and-coming actors were in line for the lead Jedi role in Star Wars Episode VII, Google search bars will likely have been working overtime as film fans tried to match faces to names.

Ed Speleers, John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher may not be household names, but Star Wars has a history of turning unknowns into big stars.

With the casting cogs turning for Star Wars: Episode VII, we take a look at what Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher were up to before they met George Lucas.

Harrison Ford

Now a bona fide movie icon, it's common knowledge that Ford struggled early on in his career and starting working as a carpenter to support his family between acting gigs. Sometimes Ford didn't even get an acting credit at all, and on one occasion he was »

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit – review | Mark Kermode

25 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Kenneth Branagh's old-fashioned cold war thriller is an efficient nail-biter

Reading this on mobile? Click here to watch video

It's been more than 20 years since novelist Tom Clancy's super-spook Jack Ryan first made it into the movies, and over a decade since he last appeared on screen. Over the course of five films, he's been variously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford (twice), Ben Affleck, and now Chris Pine, recently seen piloting the Starship Enterprise through Jj Abrams's teen-friendly galaxy. It was assumed that Pine would bring viewers too young to remember The Hunt for Red October or Patriot Games into the Ryan fold, but in America this series reboot has "skewed old", with more than a third of its opening weekend audience aged over 50. Which is bad news for the studio, but good news for those of us antiquated farts who quite like the idea of an old-fashioned cold war-inflected movie, »
