Comic-Con 2014: Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites Talk 'The Giver'

The latest YA adaptation to hit the big screen, The Giver, tells the tale of a boy growing up in a dystopian society that seems to be perfect: everyone is happy, there is no racism or disease, and everyone has a specific place and role. Things aren't exactly the way they seem, though, as Jonas learns when he's chosen to be a "Receiver" of all the knowledge about the sacrifices and sorrow of his forefathers from an elder known as the Giver. The pic also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Taylor Swift and Meryl Streep as the Chief Elder (aka the movie's baddie).

We're at Comic-Con 2014 all weekend bringing you exclusive interviews from the red carpet. Watch below as we talk to the stars of The Giver, who reveal a little more about the movie and their characters. The movie opens August 15.
