2) Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges’ The Giver gets a Trailer

Seems like you can’t say Sci-Fi these days without saying dystopian in the same breath and with that we have a trailer for The Giver. Based on the novel by Lois Lowry from 1993 it imagines a world where all pain and suffering as well as colour has been drained from the world by giving the humans a series of injections. It seems promising with Jeff Bridges being all Tron and Meryl Streep being all Children Of The Corn.

We’ll hopefully see the results sometime in August.

Páraic wanted to be a gangster as far back as he can remember. Brought up on a diet of films he was too young to be watching by his brothers, all things 80s teens thanks to his sisters and the classics by his folks he's turned into a well-rounded (maybe a little too round) film lover. Only recently discovering North by Northwest, he longs for a train journey with a beautiful blond.
