Before 'The Fault in Our Stars,' before 'Divergent,' Shailene Woodley filmed a small film from director Gregg Araki called 'White Bird in a Blizzard,' another coming-of-age tale for the actress. Though our critic had her own issues with film when she saw it at Sundance, a new trailer has debuted, and it's always great to see the lovely Eva Green smoldering up the screen.

Shailene Woodley won't have much time to rest after 'Divergent' -- we've got two sequels coming up, and Woodley's got more trouble to contend with. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer just joined the ranks for 'Divergent 2,' officially titled 'Insurgent,' as Johanna, the leader of the the opposing Amity faction.

'Divergent' star Shailene Woodley has been doing the rounds to promote her latest role in 'The Fault in Our Stars,' another adaptation of a hit Young Adult novel, and as has become custom when interviewing young actresses, Woodley's been asked about her views on feminism. Woodley, who's basically the flower child version of Jennifer Lawrence, has elicited some harsh reactions with her refusal to embrace the F-word and her admittedly naive responses, which can read as an attempt to retain mass appeal. But whether you agree with her or not, railing against Woodley's responses and presuming to know what's best for her is counterintuitive to feminism.

There's a lot to love about this clip, but the best part has to be its opening line -- 'Late Show' host David Letterman asking rising starlet Shailene Woodley, "and you eat clay?" as if he was asking her "and you're an animal lover?" or "and your favorite food is pizza?" So nonplussed. So weird.

The latest and extended 'The Fault in Our Stars' trailer has hit the web in all its heartwarming, tearjerking, pulling-at-your-heartstrings glory. In fact, if it were any more so, we would all be forced to hunker down with some Ben & Jerry's and a box of tissues and cry our eyes out. And this is just the trailer.

In a move that should surprise approximately no one, the 'Divergent' film franchise will now be four films instead of three, with 'Allegiant,' the third book in Veronica Roth's best-selling series, now being adapted into two films. Just when you thought young-adult dystopic science-fiction stories were on the way out ...

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About 'Divergent' But Were Afraid to Ask

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).

'Divergent' Review

Springing forth from the same lineage of Katniss Everdeen, far removed from the toxically weak Bella Swan bloodline, ‘Divergent’ heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prior is well worth rooting for, even if her debut film isn’t as compelling as its leading lady. Based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA trilogy, Neil Burger’s film is cripplingly faithful to its source material, and although he and screenwriters Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor have plenty of rich material to pull from, the film’s inability to distill it down to its most essential bits makes for a strangely bloated and often flatlining final product.
Yet, for its dragging run time – nearly two and a half hours – and its repetitive nature, ‘Divergent’ should both thrill fans and (hopefully) excite newcomers who will leave the theater wanting to know where its open ending travels next.

'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon loves a lot of things, but there are few he loves as much as inventing weird new games by putting an unexpected twist on them. Card games? Involve water. Three-legged race? Get a giant shoe. Ping-pong? Knit up a double turtleneck and shove the guest in alongside Fallon. Yup, there's a new 'Tonight Show' game, and it involves knit wear.
