Exclusive: See Taylor Swift's 'Giver' Character Poster

It falls into a grey area.

We didn't think it was possible, but we just got even more excited to see Taylor Swift's turn in "The Giver," out in theaters August 15.

MTV News is pleased to exclusively debut the character poster for Swift in the movie, giving us our first really good look at her as the mysterious Rosemary. Check it out below.

Ooooh, what's going on? Why's she mostly in black and white? What truth lies in her past? We'll have to watch the movie to find out.

Of course, those who have read the Lois Lowry novel of the same title, upon which the movie is based, are clued in to Rosemary's tragic backstory. We're also intrigued by the first on-set photo of Swift, perched alongside Jeff Bridges (the titular Giver) at a piano.

We can't wait to see the fictitious Community, a town that knows no pain or suffering, but as a consequence misses out on true passion and joy as well, depicted on-screen. This poster, along with the other character posters for the movie launched around the internet today (on Fandango,, SheKnows, Huffington Post, and Yahoo! Movies), also give us hope for the visual storytelling of the movie.

Could "The Giver" pull a "Pleasantville" and morph from black and white to color over the course of the film, as the story does in the book? Though the first trailer for the movie was fully in color, this poster makes it seem like a possibility.

"The Giver" hits theaters August 15. Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites and Meryl Street also star.
