I'm sure many of us have been venting about that trailer for The Giver. We did it in Currently Kittah's post of the trailer here on GT earlier and I haven't seen anyone say anything good in Burt's mainpage write-up.
But, now this piece from Entertainment Weekly goes into incredible detail explaining everything we can say appears to have been fucked up in the 90 seconds of trailer we've seen.
I will say this: I used to be one of those people who would shake my head and laugh when fans of a book would complain about changes in film adaptations. The Giver has pretty much cured me of that.
Thanks, Jeff Bridges.
