Someone got ahold of The Giver’s marketing and took a hold – because whomever designed this poster is on point. It is stunning. Love the combination of black & white and color.
“I don’t think anyone realized quite how protective fans of the book might be to that concept of restricted perception,” director Phillip Noyce told The Huffington Post. “I was amused by all the controversy in a way because I knew that wasn’t how the film was shot or how it would be released.”
The Giver stars Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, Cameron Monaghan and Taylor Swift. The movie will be released August 15th.
We love this poster. What do you think?
Synopsis: The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. THE GIVER is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
