Veronica Roth on the Divergent Movie Set + Filming Ends on the Abnegation Set

Veronica Roth was on the Divergent set again recently, here she is pictured with one of the clapper-boards, a classic pose.

Filming on the Abnegation set at Wells street, which has seen a lot of action recently, looks to have come to a finish as the concrete houses are now being taken down. We have to admit it makes us little sad after months of keeping watch over this site. It's been great fun. On the plus side, we're one step closer to the finished movie.

Pictures from the set this week and of the demolition after the cut.There is also a photo of film crews set up at navy pier. Possibly they were there to get some shots they missed first time round.

Jai Courtney Talks About the 'Divergent' Movie in New Interview with Australia's Herald Sun

From Herald sun:  AUSSIE Die Hard star Jai Courtney is almost unrecognisable in the first images to emerge from his next movie, Divergent - a franchise everyone's calling the next Hunger Games
It was announced that Courtney had landed the coveted part while he was home in Australia in March promoting A Good Day to Die Hard, in which he played the son of Bruce Willis's famed character, John McClane.
At that stage Courtney told News Limited that Divergent may give him "some opportunity for different stuff with make-up and hair ... I'll embrace it".
He has certainly done just that - he can be seen sporting neck tattoos, a pierced eyebrow, mohawk and black punk earrings in a photo that shows him on the Divergent set.

Courtney plays Eric, one of the film's big baddies - a merciless senior member of one of the five factions to which humans must belong in the future.
"I'll be walking back down the more antagonistic path with the role I'm playing, which is always fun," said Courtney, who also played a bad guy in the Tom Cruise-led action flick Jack Reacher. It is Eric's faction Dauntless that the movie's heroine, Tris (Shailene Woodley of The Descendants) chooses to join - angering Eric but leading to romance between Tris and Eric's hated rival, Four (played by James).

Here are 11 new Divergent stills courtesy of EW, untagged & in ultra large High-Quality.
Most of them can be found in the latest issue of the magazine (details here). This is our first look at many of the characters: Christina, Will, Tori, Eric, and Andrew Prior. As well as a glimpse at some the most iconic scenes from the book, such as Dauntless training, the Aptitude test, the Ferris wheel (!!!), and the dreaded 'Chasm' scene.

SET PICTURES: Divergent Filming at Abnegation, Ansel Elgort Meets Fans + Kate Winslet on Set (June 19)

A great day for fans hanging out at the Divergent set, as Divergent's 'Caleb' Ansel Elgort stopped by to chat and take pictures. Ansel later tweeted: "So nice to meet a bunch of you awesome #divergent fans on set! If you guys got photos tweet them to me."

Elsewhere, filming continued on the Abnegation village where Shailene Woodley was spotted (pictured below), and excitingly, we found numerous reports of Kate Winslet on set, and in fact has been for a few days, likely on indoor sets. Divergent fan @Dauntless46 reported that a Bentley car was spotted being used for filming, we all agree that this likely belongs to one 'Jeanine Matthews'.

@rosssbody: Met Kate Winslet on set okay with just doing movies rest of my life
@shelbynovicki: I just saw Kate Winslet filming Divergent outside my apartment and she's even more perfect in person.
@EChernyakova1: Got to work on-set with Kate Winslet today, awesome day!!

Entertainment Weekly First Look: Behind the Scenes of Divergent - Scans, Stills, Interviews, & Video

Earlier today, we were blown away when Entertainment Weekly revealed Divergent would be featuring in this week's magazine. We hadn't been expecting treats like this to come so soon as the movie is still filming, but we're very happy that they did!

On the cover is our first still of Tris & Four together, and a hint of what is inside, a report from the set in Chicago and exclusive photos.

The treats didn't end there. Christmas came early as scans of the new stills featured inside and an amazing behind the scenes video became available. We've posted everything below, including a transcript, in one master post for you to check out.

Those that can, be sure to go and pick up your copy of EW this week! We've included online purchase links below. (continued)

New Poster + Trailer for 'The Spectacular Now'

New poster and (finally) a trailer for The Spectacular Now movie starring Shailene & Miles (Our Tris & Peter)! This looks awesome. We'll totally be seeking it out.

From MTV: Before they hop aboard the "Divergent" train as Dauntless nemeses, actors Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller will find love in "The Spectacular Now."
Based on the novel by Tim Tharp and written for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber — whom you may know as the men behind the Joseph Gordon-Levitt charmer "(500) Days of Summer" — "The Spectacular Now" follows hard-partying high-school senior Sutter (Miles Teller), who's just living in the moment ... whiskey tumbler and all.

But as this MTV News exclusive trailer shows, things change for Sutter when he's dumped by his popular girlfriend (Brie Larson) and discovered by Aimee (Woodley) passed out on a stranger's lawn. The two begin a tentative friendship (they do come from different social strata, after all), but as relationships of this sort are wont to do, it quickly evolves into so much more.

"Do you not see that I'm bad for you?" Sutter pleads with Aimee after she declares her love for the aimless teen. "You need to get away from me." Can a future exist for the young loves outside of the spectacular now? (Continued)

FIRST LOOK + INTERVIEW: Theo James as 'Four' (High-Quality & Untagged)


Update: Added High-Quality size still, without the tag. Because bigger is always better. Click for full size.

OH MY FOUR!!!!! We have the first look at Theo James as Four/Tobias!! SWOON.
Here are FOUR thing we love about the new FOUR still: 1. Hello biceps. 2. He looks badass! 3. The intense instructor face. 4. A peek at the tatts!
 And that's not all, check out the AWESOME interview with EW below: 
From EW
Attention all you Four fans: here’s an exclusive reveal of Theo James as Tobias “Four” Eaton, the mysterious–and rather dreamy–Dauntless leader that takes a special interest in Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley).

For those of you who haven’t read the Veronica Roth books, Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where all of society is divided into five factions: Amity (peaceful), Abnegation (selfless); Candor (honest, Erudite (intelligent); a nd Dauntless (brave). Our heroine, sixteen-year-old Tris, chooses the Dauntless faction.

EW caught up with Theo James while he was on a break from shooting Divergent in Chicago where the production will continue until mid-July.  ”Is this the picture where I have a t-shirt on and no pants? I was really hoping they’d use that one,” James jokes, before explaining that this picture (note: he is wearing pants) captures a moment from early in the film when Four is showing the Dauntless initiates around their new headquarters. “I’ve introduced them to this world and they’re still in the beginning stages of training,” he says. “At this stage you don’t really know what Four is all about.”
James got a taste for leadership when much of the cast participated in a kind of boot camp before filming. James was even given the opportunity to take charge of the Dauntless training, leading the 50 or so actors that make up the core group of background Dauntless characters. “They didn’t know he was playing Four, they thought he was our stunt coordinator,” says director Neil Burger, with a laugh. “He put them through it.”
Says James, “I know it sounds ridiculous but it was really quite useful: it helped set a tone for those scenes, being able to live the character a bit.  At one point, Shailene was laughing and I got real serious with her and said”—the actor lowers his voice to a menacing whisper—”Don’t. Laugh.”  He laughs. “Shai was like, ‘um, are you joking right now?’”

NEW Set Video Reveals Train Jump Stunt + Pics by the Cast

Pictures tweeted cast members by Christian Madsen and Miles Teller show Christian experiencing the joys of the make-up chair, and Miles wearing a mask.. possibly for a certain kidnap scene???
Also, below is a video from the set, found originally on a vine on twitter (from May 31). It shows stunt doubles performing what we're guessing is a train jump, with plenty of green screen around.
