Press Release:

Join the 92nd Street Y for preview clips and conversation with Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges and legendary author Lois Lowry as they discuss the transformation of The Giver from a book to a major motion picture on Friday August 8, 2014 at 7:00 PM.

The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined—a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all—a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. The Giver is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

BRUCE BOXLEITNER signs RISE: A LANTERN CITY ILLUSTRATED NOVEL at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 14th September at 4:00pm.

The new Steampunk show Lantern City is an exciting foray into fan-inspired and fan-created television. Blending great science fiction with dynamic storylines, at its heart the show asks two questions: how far would you go to be with the person you love and what lengths would you go to in order to survive?

RISE tells the story of Isaac Foster Grey, the first leader of Lantern City. Isaac’s battles through misfortunes and his ultimate quest to save his family intertwine with a burning vengeance against his father’s killer and that man’s plan for domination over every citizen in the land of Hetra.

With over forty years of experience in Hollywood, Bruce Boxleitner has been involved in classic films and television series, such as Tron and Tron: Legacy, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and Babylon 5. Bruce recently lent his voice talents to the hit video game Spec Ops: The Line. He is excited to present Lantern City, a groundbreaking show in which he will serve as co-creator and executive producer.
