‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ Trailer: Go Beyond the Wall

by Jacob Hall September 15, 2015 @ 12:22 PM
The Divergent series has never reached the culture-saturating heights of the Hunger Games movies, but it’s done well for itself. Divergent and its awkwardly titled sequel, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, left fans satisfied and made their fare share of cash at the box office. The first trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant (ugh, that title) is preaching to the choir. No one put off by the first two films will be won over by this footage and no one who skipped the first two will be able to follow any of this, but this movie doesn’t need your approval. It just needs the approval of the faithful.

Well, now it’s going to be a TV series for Hulu, brought to you by the minds behind The Amazing Spider-Man and Divergent. Congratulations, eight people interested in this!

Much like the casting of Philip Seymour Hoffman in a key role for the final installments of The Hunger Games franchise, Lionsgate has cast another older, distinguished actor to play a crucial part in the final parts of the Divergent series.

Final ‘Insurgent’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Sets the World Free

The Divergent Series: Insurgent (which the real, actual title of this film) has been bombarding us with trailers for so long that it feels like the movie should have come out by now. But alas, the next chapter in this young adult dystopian romantic action series is still a month away and Summit has released the final Insurgent trailer. To their credit, this is easily the most effective preview they’ve cut so far, even if it seems like it’s in an alien language to the people who skipped Divergent.

If you loved ‘Divergent’ and are already totally on board with the cinematic adaptations of Veronica Roth’s young adult science fiction novels, then the trailer for the awkwardly titled ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ is probably going to prove exciting. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, prepare for 144 seconds that might as well be in a foreign language.

Miles Teller has a movie he's very proud of this year. That movie is 'Whiplash,' a movie about the dysfunctional relationship between a jazz drummer and his demented teacher. He says of all the training he put into the film, "It was, by far, the hardest thing I’ve ever done." Miles Teller also has a movie he's not very proud of. That movie is the young adult hit 'Divergent,' which Teller says left him feeling "dead inside."

Just when you thought young-adult dystopic science-fiction stories were on the way out ...

Weekend Box Office Report: 'Divergent' Leaves 'Muppets Most Wanted' in the Dust

by Jacob Hall March 23, 2014 @ 12:24 PM
If the main goal of 'Divergent' was to snag a large portion of the audience for 'The Hunger Games,' it looks like it succeeded. Although it didn't reach the absurd heights of Katniss' two movies, Shailene Woodley's dystopian adventure effortlessly nabbed the number one spot and, unless something bad happens next week, announced the arrival of a new big franchise.

It’s not easy to dive headlong into a brand new YA film franchise, even when it hits the big screen by way of a blockbuster production packed with stars (rising and solid alike) and giant action set pieces. What if you haven’t read the book it’s all based on? What if the trailers have done nothing to educate you on how this new franchise is different than that other new YA franchise?
When it comes to ‘Divergent,’ the Shailene Woodley-starring film version of author Veronica Roth’s bestselling book trilogy of the same name, there are plenty of questions that might prove valuable to answer before getting involved in the new series, just so you know what you’re working with. What’s a “Tris”? What’s a “divergent”? Where is this thing set? Will I like it? Should I read the books?
Having read the books and having seen the movie, with those questions – and many more – in mind, we’re here to attempt to tell you everything you need to know about the world of ‘Divergent’ (including that, yes, that word gets thrown around a lot).
