Forget trying to live up to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s original source material. Can Mark Bridges‘ The Little Prince possibly live up to its enchanting trailers? If it can — if it’s even half as good — we could be looking at an instant classic.
What makes the latest The Little Prince trailer even more appealing to us is that it features the English-language voice cast. That includes Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Rachel McAdams, and James Franco, with Riley Osborne as the little prince himself. Watch the Little Prince trailer after the jump. Read More »

The Giver, based on the book by Lois Lowry, tells the story of a society in which people no longer feel, well, pretty much anything. There are no emotions, no colors, and no real sense of personal individuality. All that hits a tipping point when one young man, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is assigned to take over the work of The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is essentially the world’s last living librarian. The Giver tells Jonas a few secrets, and in doing so threatens to upset the whole system. Suddenly what had seemed like a utopian existence starts to look a lot more dark and oppressive.
The film preserves the book’s black and white world, and the process of it opening up to color. It also casts Meryl Streep as the society’s Chief Elder. Which means we get to see Streep ruling with an indomitable will, and a tendency to say things like “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong.” This new trailer really shows off Streep’s work, and is therefore worth a look.

It’d be easy to assume that Philip Noyce‘s The Giver is just another Hunger Games knock-off, given that it’s yet another YA adaptation set in a dystopian universe. But in truth, it’s a film that Jeff Bridges has been working on for almost twenty years — way back before Katniss Everdeen was even a twinkle in Suzanne Collins’ eye. Heck, before J.K. Rowling introduced the world to Harry Potter.
Based on the novel by Lois Lowry, The Giver unfolds in a seemingly utopian society which has not just eliminated, but completely forgotten concepts like war and poverty. When protagonist Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) comes of age, however, he learns that this pain-free existence comes at a cost. He is chosen to bear the burden of remembering the past so that others won’t have to, and begins to receive memories from the Giver (Bridges).
The first images from the film have just been released, and you can check them out after the jump.
