New Official INSURGENT Poster!



The INSURGENT treats just keep coming! Here's the official poster. Tying in nicely with the just released INSURGENT teaser clip, it shows Tris floating through Chicago on a burning Abnegation house. There's no way anyone saw this coming! "But what does it mean???" you ask? Well since this is taken from what must be a 'fear landscape', we're guessing it's a symbol of Tris overcoming her fears and inner demons. A major theme in INSURGENT. Pretty clever huh? Plus it looks epic.

First Official INSURGENT Teaser - Defy Reality



It's here. ITS HERE!!!!. Our first taste of INSURGENT. Watch the first official teaser clip right now. When we've composed ourselves we'll break it down.

Brave DIVERGENT Fan Meets Theo James & Cast on the INSURGENT Set Via Make-A-Wish

Divergent fan Kaitlin Lehman could give Tris Prior a run for her money when it comes to being brave.

Kaitlin, who loves dancing and doing cart-wheels (we can relate) was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (a relatively rare form of cancer) back in May 2013, and given a 20% chance of survival. This year she beat the odds and kicked it's ass Dauntless style, and is on the road to recovery.

It was Make-A-Wish day on the set of Insurgent last week (Make-a-Wish foundation is a charitable organization that helps children with life-threatening medical conditions) and Kaitlin was all set to meet hero Theo James who as you know plays FOUR in the movie. Unfortunately a few days before, she had an accident that resulted in a hairline fracture on her shin bone. Her mother posted this on Facebook:

Theo James to Star in New Movie "The Secret Scripture"



Variety reports that: Theo James has joined Eric Bana and Jack Reynor in talks to co-star with Rooney Mara in Jim Sheridan’s adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s book “The Secret Scripture.
Pic also stars Vanessa Redgrave and Jeremy Irons and revolves around a woman’s extended stay at a mental hospital.

Theo James on Playing FOUR, Acting, Choosing New Roles, & DIVERGENT Challenges


The spring blockbuster “Divergent” arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this week, bringing the first movie installment based on Veronica Roth’s young adult book series to home video. Earlier this year, Hero Complex sat down with James to talk about “Divergent,” Four’s particular brand of honor and what’s next:

Hero Complex: I understand that you’re a latecomer to the world of acting?
Theo James: I think it was always kind of around. I was always one of those annoying, performing little shits. To pretend that I just fell into it and was like, “Oh my God, whoopsy daisy!” — people sometimes pretend that, and it annoys me. Everyone’s going to try. It’s not like it just happens. But basically, I was 18, I finished school, I vaguely thought about it, but then I didn’t really know how to get into it. I didn’t know anyone involved in it. I went to university. I went away for a bit and traveled and kind of was at a crossroads post-university, and I thought, maybe this is worth a try. So I went to a drama school. Basically, an ex-girlfriend at the time was auditioning for these drama schools, and she kind of told me about it and how it worked, and it went from there. So I kind of started in 2010.

CinemaBlend: 5 Things To Know About DIVERGENT After You've Seen It

In anticipation of the home video release of Divergent, CinemaBlend had the opportunity to speak with director Neil Burger about the making of the film. Among the topics of discussion, finding the right Four, Kate Winslet's pregnancy, the zip-lining scene that almost didn't happen and the challenges the sequel faces.

1. The zip lining scene almost didn't happen.
Burger confirmed that the draft of the script he was working from originally didn't have the zip-lining scene in it. The reasoning behind almost omitting such an iconic scene from the book was that it wasn't really life-altering and it didn't present any kind of obstacle for Tris. "She’d had other victories already," Burger explained. "With the capture the flag scene which comes right before it."

But in the end, Burger fought to get the scene in the movie. "I just felt like it was such a great spectacle and also such a signature event in the book that it had to be in there," he said. It certainly was one of the most fun scenes to watch in the film, and it sounds like that was Burger's primary goal, as he said he worked really hard to make it as wild and fun a ride as possible.

Shailene Woodley & Theo James Video Message from the INSURGENT Set


Happy DIVERGENT DVD release day!

Christian Madson on Playing 'AL' in DIVERGENT & Relating to the Story

Christian Madsen who plays Dauntless initiate 'Al' talks about filming the movie, relating to Tris and more: You can read the full interview at Up&Comers. Below is an excerpt:

Al may have the physical advantage of being bigger than his peers, but that doesn’t work out for him during training so he resorts to betraying Tris, which is something he later ends up regretting. How was it like to film the big scene where Al tried to apologize to Tris?

When I read the script, I knew that was going to be a challenging scene because of the emotion behind it. When you shoot a movie like that, there’s a lot of times when you are having a lot of fun because there’s a lot of action sequences. Everyone literally became so close — you know, friendships, stuff like that. When we shot that scene when I was in the dining hall with Tris, I had to really separate myself from everybody because I had to go to that headspace of Al being very, very alone, trying to be somewhat of a forgiving — It was really hard that day.

MTV: Zoe Kravitz Talks About Scenes Between CHRISTINA & TRIS in INSURGENT



MTV chats to Zoe Kravitz (Christina) about INSURGENT:
-Great news from the “Divergent” universe, gang — not only is the special-features-loaded Blu-ray officially out on Tuesday (August 5), but the whole cast and crew is already hard at work filming scenes for the sequel, “Insurgent.” Speaking like a Candor, that’s pretty freaking awesome news.

However, don’t expect all the characters you fell in love with in the first movie to be quite as eager as we are to return to its chaotic universe. As Zoe Kravitz — who plays Cristina in the films — told MTV News over the phone, her girl power fueled friendship with Tris (Shailene Woodley) will be in serious jeopardy over the death of Cristina’s boyfriend Will in “Divergent.”

Zoe Kravitz on Filming INSURGENT, Reading, & Hanging Out with the Cast

DIVERGENT star Zoe Kravitz (Christina in the movie) called Nylon to chat about INSURGENT during a rare break:

You're in the middle of filming the newest Divergent movie right now [Insurgent]. How are things going?
They're great! We've been filming it in Atlanta, which is actually a really cool place to shoot. The cast is so fun--we're all good friends now, so it sort of feels like summer camp. You know?

Definitely. Do you guys hang out when you're not filming?
Yeah, we do. We actually just had a really nice girls' night at Shai's [Shailene Woodley's] house and cooked all these different meals and brought a bunch of different dishes. There are just so many rad, beautiful women in this film and I'm glad to be friends with them all.

The Divergent series is one of those types of books that are intended for teens, but that adults secretly read, too. What other YA books are you into?
[Laughing] Totally. I wasn't into Divergent beforehand, mostly because I felt a little old for them. But then obviously I read the books once I got the part, and it's totally a page-turner. I am actually rereading The Catcher in the Rye right now, because I'm on this kick where I'm rereading a lot of the books I was forced to read in high school.

How are you balancing doing movies in addition to playing shows with your band (Lolawolf)?
It's a challenge, but we make it work. The boys will come out to where I'm shooting and we'll work in the hotel room or something. It's all about the balance...we have the other two Divergent films to make, and then my goal is to do some traveling and get a tour together.

Full interview at Nylon. Get the Divergent digital HD release and Blu-Ray combo pack now, and buy the DVD August 5th!

How TRIS Will Look in INSURGENT + Shailene & Theo Talks Stunts & Character Progression



When Insurgent hits theaters in March 2015, viewers won’t be seeing the long-haired Tris (Shailene Woodley) they came to know in 2014’s Divergent, the first film in the trilogy based on Veronica Roth’s novels. Instead, the character will be rocking the blonde pixie cut Woodley sported at 2014’s San Diego Comic-Con (above right) this past weekend.

“This is what you’ll be seeing,” she told BuzzFeed while promoting the Divergent Blu-ray/DVD release. “I talked to the director [Robert Schwentke] because I didn’t want to wear a wig. I think wigs always look wiggy, especially in an action movie. We’re running so much and doing so much, I think, technically, a wig would have looked quite shitty.”

INSURGENT Casting: Academy Award Winner 'Octavia Spencer' Will Play AMITY Leader 'Johanna Reyes'

Here is our first casting announcement for Divergent sequel, INSURGENT!

Octavia Spencer will officially play the "peaceful" AMITY faction spokesperson Johnna Reyes, a leader of sorts, though technically AMITY make all decisions as a group.

Octavia is best known for her role as Minny, the outspoken maid in the 2011 film The Help, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress, among other accolades.


What do we know about Johanna? Tris describes her as having a long scar running from her eye to her chin, rendering her blind in one eye and giving her a lisp when she speaks. She transferred from AMITY to CANDOR.

Another noted INSURGENT casting is the lesser known 'Richard Graff' who will be playing 'Aeneas', a character not featured in the books that we recall, so must have been created specifically for the movie adaptation.

Veronica Roth at the LA TIMES Festival of Books 2014

LA Times brings us a recap of DIVERGENT author Veronica Roth at the LA Times Bookfest this month, plus we've included some photos of Veronica signing st the event and video of the talk:

In between some rants and caveman talk, "Divergent" trilogy author Veronica Roth explained Sunday how she came up with the female protagonist of her dystopian coming-of-age novel.

Roth, 25, spoke at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books with Leigh Bardugo, whose books include "Shadow and Bone" and "Siege and Storm." Bardugo set the stage by explaining why young adult novels such as "Divergent" are such hits.

"That feeling never goes away of finding somewhere to belong," she said.

Borrowing from the five groups of people in Roth's books, here's a look at what Roth shared about her process, characters and message to young adult readers. 

Amity (the peaceful): Four, the male partner-in-crime for Tris, was purposely well-balanced with the heroine.

"I didn't want one person's strength to require the sacrifice of the other," Roth said. "I think there can be two strong people but they have to be complicated people. I think it's important to show he's a human being, not just man candy."
