OneRepublic releases a new single via the trailer to 'The Giver' movie.
FYI, Taylor Swift makes an appearance in the science fiction flick that stars Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
Two-time Grammy Award nominated band OneRepublic lifts the profile of sci-fi adaptation The Giver starring Brendan Thwaites, Odeya Rush, Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
Summarising the main plot thrust of the film (and the Lois Lowry novel upon which it’s based), a brief trailer sees Thwaites’s Jonas starting to uncover the awful truth behind a seemingly perfect society he was born into.
A bearded Bridges appears as Jonas’s mentor, the eponymous Giver, with Taylor Swift by his side.
Streep plays the commanding Elder who issues instructions for Jonas to be stopped before he goes too far while Katie Holmes is his mother who watches on distraught.
With Lowry’s book – a modern sci-fi classic since its publication in 1994, winning a Newbery Medal and Margaret Edwards Award for the Hawaii-born author – the film has been a passion project of Bridges for some time and is directed by Phillip Noyce of The Quiet American, Clear And Present Danger and Salt.
OneRepublic’s new track Ordinary Human accompanies the trailer, while for fellow musician Swift, the role of Rosemary is her biggest acting gig yet. — AFP Relaxnews
