DIVERGENT in Total Film Magazine: Better Quality Still + Chat With Shailene Woodley & Theo James

DIVERGENT is featured in Total Film magazine, which includes this behind the scenes still in better quality than we saw before, & a brief chat with stars Shailene and Theo:
"Total film is crouching in the dark in Cinescape studios in Chicago watching Shailene Woodley and Brit Theo James get crushed in a shrinking aluminum box. As the walls close in, the duo’s limbs entwine and they breathlessly scrabble to brace the suffocating space.  We know how they feel. Its muggy and airless in the former steel works building thanks to the gathering storm (a tornado is predicted to hit the windy city imminently) and tensions are high on set of what could be the nest Hunger Games. Not least because that incoming weather is cutting shooting time short today and the box (the sides pushed together in a lo-tech fashion by beefy gaffers) isn’t behaving perfectly, but also because director Neil Burger and his leads need to nail the right mix of sex and danger to make this inaugural film take off with audiences – and lay the way for a planned three-film franchise.

Remember when we said BIG things were on the way? The new Dauntless Character Posters revealed last week were just the start.

A NEW DIVERGENT TRAILER IS COMING. Check out the screenshot above. As you may have heard yesterday, Shailene Woodley announced the OFFICIAL Divergent trailer will be revealed on Wednesday 13th November. (If you're unfamiliar with how trailers are usually released, the previous trailer was a teaser trailer, this is the full length one.)

And here is what we've been dying to share with you:

The movie gods have looked down upon us and blessed us with an early look at the trailer. We've had to wait until now to share our reactions, which is just as well because trying to type while freaking out and hugging the screen is neither easy nor dignified, and wouldn't have been very informative.

This is just our initial reaction, we don't want to spoil it for you so we'll go into more detail and break it down after the trailer is publicly released and we can all watch together.

New 'DIVERGENT' Trailer WILL Be Shown in Cinemas Before Hunger Games 'Catching Fire'

Its OFFICIAL: Hold on to your feels, because the new DIVERGENT trailer is going to be shown in theatres before The Hunger Games: Catching Fire screenings!

(Remember when we posted about this a few weeks back and everyone got excited and it turned out to be a miss-communication? Well, now we have confirmation.)

Most of you will probably be heading to theatres to watch the latest Hunger Games installment anyway, this just makes it even better. The New DIVERGENT trailer will be unveiled officially worldwide this WEDNESDAY, details HERE. However, seeing it on the big screen is going to be awesome.

VIDEO: Shailene Woodley & Veronica Roth Talk Stunts, Theo James, & Allegiant with Sugarscape

From Sugarscape:

"If you've yet to hear about Divergent, you need to stop what you're doing a grab a copy of the book, because next year will finally see the first chapter of the trilogy written by Veronica Roth unleashed onto the big screen.

But while you might think that all that action-packed drama would be the perfect way for Theo James to show off his manliness, it was actually Shailene Woodley who had the head for heights when it came to climbing an 80ft ferris wheel for the movie. Catching up with author Veronica Roth and of course Shailene, who plays Tris, we couldn't resist finding out just how she got on with the Dauntless stunts. Apparently she couldn't have loved it more, even when it came to chucking herself of buildings and climbing a massive ferris wheel and it was actually co-star Theo, who plays Four, who was slightly left quaking in his boots."

DAY 5: Official Divergent Movie Character Poster: PETER

Here is the official character poster for Miles Teller as Peter, revealed by Fandango!! This whole pose does indeed reflect Peter's personality:

"You okay there, Stiff…You look like you’re about to cry. I might go easy on you if you cry.” -PETER

PETER: Originally born into Candor, Peter joins Dauntless and uses evil cunning and cruel violence to advance in the initiation process.

"Peter would probably throw a party if I stopped breathing." -TRIS

Every day this week a brand new poster has been revealed. As you can see in all of them, the tattoos are the focus and are highlighted, to reflect the faction they all represent - the Dauntless.

"Most Dauntless get tattoos as a reminder of the past, a mark of progress. There's also the relationship to pain (a true Dauntless doesn't mind the pain!), but mostly tattoos are a sign of overcoming obstacles, for them, a way of marking struggle and progress on the body" -Veronica Roth

"Politeness is deception in pretty packaging” -CHRISTINA

CHRISTINA: Christina is kind, empathetic, but also fearless. She instantly befriends Tris as they enter the Dauntless faction together.

"What I like about Christina is her honesty. She’s not ashamed of who she is and that’s what I love about her so much. I hope that’s what young women can take away from her too." -Zoe Kravitz.

Veronica Roth & Shailene Woodley at the London Allegiant Tour Event

Shailene was hidden in the back during the event until Veronica announced her, and then joined the author on stage!

NEW Interview with Veronica Roth at the Dublin ALLEGIANT Tour Event

Click Online shared a great new in-depth interview with Veronica Roth. The Divergent author talks about making the movie, the cast, the reaction to Allegiant -the latest book out, and more.

We posted some of our favorite excerpts, but you can read the interview in full HERE.

CLICK: "Roth is an amiable interviewee, prone to fits of laughter and self-deprecation, and still seems somewhat amazed that the dystopia she created has captured the attention of so many people. She’s also very tall. And she was nice enough to sit while we talked about her inspiration, her involvement in the movies, choosing a faction for herself and jumping into bathtubs full of marshmallows.

This interview was conducted in person in Dublin on the 3rd of November 2013.

DAY 3: Official Divergent Movie Character Poster: ERIC

Wow. Check out Jai Courtney as Dauntless leader ERIC in this latest character poster revealed by Buzzfeed! It's not hard to see why he strikes fear into the hearts of initiates. 

"Leaving us with Eric is like hiring a babysitter who spends his time sharpening knives." -TRIS

ERIC: Eric is a brutal force with a damaged moral compass. His cruel training methods and ruthless leadership make him a quick adversary to Tris, the Abnegation transfer and protagonist of the story.

"Jai is truly a great actor. You'll see, he's tough and mean and fun to watch." Director Neil Burger.

Check out the animated version at Divergent’s Official Tumblr site.
