LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) breaks through the cover of "sameness" with the red apple in the latest film clip of "The Giver."

In the film, the Giver (Jeff Bridges) tries to help Jonas break through the "sameness" -- the absence of color, feeling, and love -- to find freedom before the Chief Elder (Meryl Streep) stops him.

The Giver also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift. The film hits theaters August 15.
