New Pictures of Shailene Woodley from BUST Magazine Photoshoot

We posted some images of Shailene Woodley featured in BUST Magazine a few days ago, here are some new shots, some from before in better quality, and a glowing opinion of the actress:

Photographer Michael Lavine on Shailene Woodley:

"When Shailene sauntered up the hill in her baggy jeans and ripped white tee shirt I could tell that I was dealing with a different kind of Hollywood star. She was carrying jars of homemade teas in a half torn box and she could not have been any friendlier. Not a lot of drama to report here about our shoot except that the whole crew was really nice, the location was beautiful and lunch was tasty, we simply had a lovely time shooting around the yard and by the pool. I videotaped the interview but never got around to editing it so you will have to read it in the new issue of BUST Magazine. On a side note, I was at Sundance last week and was able to catch Shailene’s new film White Bird in a Blizzard. Based on the book by Laura Kasischke, the story follows a young woman who is dealing with the sudden disappearance of her mother. I was really impressed with her highly charged performance and I am very much looking forward to seeing what she does with her next big role in the upcoming blockbuster Divergent!"

DIVERGENT Movie Reshoots/Additional Filming - Set Photos & Video Jan 27

Last minute additional filming continues for DIVERGENT in LA, and we have a whole load of new photos. [See pics from Jan 24/25 HERE]. So far the only main cast we know for sure have been around for reshoots are Ashley Judd, Christian Madsen, and Tony Goldwyn, though we have no photos yet.

Check out the pics below for a look at the hundreds of extras dressed as faction members. Many of them came from lucky school kids who got a first hand look as filming took place on campus. There's also a video of stunts being performed on a building! What could this scene be? Probably something Dauntless. Can't wait to find out!

Check out this AWESOME collection of DIVERGENT merchandise that we NEED to get our hands on, by NECA featured at the 2014 Toy Fair. (A show to preview new toys/merch to industry experts) There are socks, notebooks, phone covers, tattoo transfers, necklaces, pins, bracelets, and more! We hope these are more widely available soon.

According to the source: "This year, Divergent joins the ranks of films like Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games in getting a full line of ..well...stuff, for you, the happy consumer. Alongside all these items, we are told NECA will pump out a selection of action figures. Knowing the subject material is similar to Twilight and Hunger Games, we expect the action figure model will be similar as well, with 2 to 3 figures released in time for the film's premiere. ACTION. FIGURES. Thanks to Idlehands.

DIVERGENT Movie Reshoots/Additional Filming - Set Photos (Jan 24/25)

Hundreds of extras were on hand this weekend for last minute reshoots/additional filming for the DIVERGENT movie. They're a normal part of the film making. During post production the Director may decide they want a scene done a different way, or want to add extra scenes, etc, you get the idea. We don't know how many of/if the main cast were included, but Ashely Judd (Natalie Prior) was sighted, and Christian Madsen (Dauntless initiate 'Al') tweeted a picture of his trailer, tagged #reshoots. Filming is due to continue for the about a week in LA, with around 750 faction extras involved. Check out the pics below for a glimpse at the sets:

DIVERGENT Movie Fans Break Record in Round 3 of the 2014 MTV Movie Brawl

As you may be aware, we've pushing and voting like crazy to get DIVERGENT all the way to the final in the 2014 MTV Movie Brawl.

Earlier today after an amazing come back against 'Maps to the Stars', we reached the Final Four! It was tough beating the impressively sized Robert Pattinson fan base, but the initiates came through and voted in what MTV called "unprecedented" numbers. (Also, hello new TRIS still from @Divergent on the left!)

MTV:  "In the Elite Eight, Robert Pattinson's "Maps to the Stars" was the clear favorite for several days, until Initiates rallied in unprecedented numbers, pulling "Divergent" past the finish line."

Shailene Woodley InDepth Interview from Sundance Film Festival 2014

"You’ll be hearing a lot about Shailene Woodley this year, with starring roles in the blockbuster Divergent and the drama The Fault in Our Stars."

The Daily Beast: We sat down with her at Sundance for a long conversation on her latest, the mystery White Bird in a Blizzard, and everything else.

It’s a horrible cliché to say it, but Shailene Woodley really is a breath of fresh air—especially after an 8:30 a.m. screening midway through the Sundance Film Festival.

I’m fresh out of her latest film, the coming-of-age drama-mystery White Bird in a Blizzard, which was directed by Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin). The film is set from 1988-1991, and Woodley stars as Kat, a young woman who struggles to find herself after her overbearing mother (Eva Green) mysteriously disappears. The trauma strains her relationships with her boyfriend (Shiloh Fernandez) and terribly shy father (Christopher Meloni). It’s another strong bildungsroman for Woodley, who has become something of an expert at the genre, what with her stellar turn in last year’s The Spectacular Now, and The Fault in Our Stars, out later this year.

DIVERGENT Wins 5 Awards in the Epic Reads Book Shimmy Awards

Congrats to DIVERGENT, ALLEGIANT, and Veronica Roth for winning 5 awards in the Epic Reads Book Shimmy Awards, and to all the initiates who voted. 
"Forget the Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmy’s or MTV Movie Awards – the only award show you need to watch this year are the first ever *Book Shimmy* Awards!"
After calculating over 50,000 votes, the winner were announced today.

Divergent series won: Most Emotionally Crippling Ending for Allegiant,  Tris Prior as Most Badass Heroine, Divergent Series for World Series Champion, Veronica Roth for The Pagemaster/Best Author, and Allegiant for Best of Shelf - Overall best book of 2013.

HQ Scans: Justine Magazine DIVERGENT Movie Set Visit + Interview with Shailene Woodley

Check out the new DIVERGENT behind the scenes photo on the left featuring Director Neil Burger and Shailene Woodley (Tris).  

JUSTINE Magazine visited the DIVERGENT movie set during production last year, which included getting to watch scenes being filmed, a tour, and interviewing some of the stars! Read on below for the set report and interview with Shailene:

JM Report: When I found out that I would be visiting the set of DIVERGENT and catching a glimpse into mastermind author Veronica Roth's creation, I knew I was in for a treat- and I was right!! The marathon day started with a visit to the Abnegation territory (where Tris grew up with her family), which, oddly enough, was located smack dab in the middle of Chicago – talk about picture perfect! This wasn’t the only larger-than-life, spot-on interpretation of the story, though.

During the set tour (which took place in a massive warehouse), I got to board the infamous train car, peruse through the seemingly endless costumes (and chat with one of the best designers in the biz). I even got my turn to sport the headphones and watch on the monitor behind the green screen while Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller did what they do best.

I could not have imagined a more welcoming cast and crew as I watched the book I had been feverishly rereading on the plane the day before unfold in front of me. And lets not forget about the old-friend style interviews that broke up the day. Each of the talented stars had something new to bring to the table, but one recurring question was, “Have you met Shailene yet?” followed by stories about her contagious positivity and quirkiness, and even her strict organic dietary decisions. It wasn’t until I met this leading lady at the very end of the day that I truly understood what they meant as she bounced over- a glass jar of imported water in hand- and charmingly asked, “What’s goin’ on?” Here’s what she had to say….

Ellie Goulding Talks About Being on the DIVERGENT Movie Soundtrack

We mentioned previously that Ellie Goulding would be featuring on the DIVERGENT soundtrack, now she has announced it officially and tells us that not only will she have a new song on the film, but that she has been working with the musical director to be involved with the whole musical side of things.

She spoke to MTV and ABC in the videos below, confirming her voice will be kind of 'woven into' parts of the instrumental throughout the movie. Exciting!

Ellie also tells us that she has seen the film and thinks it's awesome! (natch).

VIDEO: ABC on DIVERGENT 'The Next Big Film Craze'

ABC News talks about how the DIVERGENT movie could be the next big 'teen' film craze, like that of The Hunger Games, possibly even bigger. Wow, that's certainly something to aspire to. As we reported recently, DIVERGENT is the most positively buzzed about upcoming movie on social networks, team that with incredible book sales and it looks promising. A success like this would ensure the future of the franchise. Mostly however, we're hoping for an amazing and faithful movie adaptation. What we've seen so far looks promising, and we'll be doing our bit to support the movie come release day by spreading the word and watching it as many times as our wallets allow.

Shailene Woodley Talks Pop Culture with Yahoo Movies

Yahoo Movies spoke with DIVERGENT star Shailene Woodley by phone about her pop culture roots for their POPsessions questionnaire. Check it out below:

1. What was the first movie you saw?
Probably "Beauty and the Beast." I remember loving it. I would watch it all day long, every day, multiple times a day.

2. What movie do you absolutely always stop and watch if you see it on cable?
"Dirty Dancing." It was a movie I grew up with and is one of my all-time favorites. I love the nostalgia of it. I love the romance in it. I love the storyline and the music.  I think it’s just such a great comfort film.

Interview: Shailene Woodley Talks DIVERGENT & More in Entertainment Weekly

You’ve recently become the go-to person for YA literary adaptations. I’ve been trying to figure out if there’s something that unites the characters you’re playing in all these movies – The Spectacular Now, Divergent, and The Fault in Our Stars — and what I came up with is that it seems like all of them could be described as loners.

I don’t think so. I wouldn’t say that Aimee’s a loner. I think that she’s somebody who chooses not to have a lot of friends because she just doesn’t have anything in common with a lot of high school kids. She’s got an old soul, and she’s incredibly wise and intelligent, and is an introvert. I think that Tris [from Divergent] isn’t a loner; she’s just from a faction that doesn’t lend to compassionate friendships. And I think that Hazel [from The Fault in Our Stars] isn’t a loner, I think she’s somebody that by circumstance isn’t around a lot of people often. So I actually don’t think there’s much correlation between any of them, apart from the fact that they’re all around the same age.

DIVERGENT Director Neil Burger Talks to Buzzsugar About the Dynamic Between TRIS & FOUR

BuzzSugar visited the Edit bay room for Divergent where they chatted with with director Neil Burger about the sexual tension between Tris and Four, as well as the constant comparison to The Hunger Games.

What's the dynamic of the relationship between Four and Tris?

Neil Burger: I think what's cool about the relationship is that they don't fall in love in the beginning. There's real friction and certainly sexual tension in their relationship, but he's incredibly hard on her. [He's] really pushing her, and it just has a different kind of feel to it. He's like a stone wall, just gives nothing. It's really confusing to her, and it's compelling for her, and you see that in that knife throw. He cuts her, but he sort of does it on purpose, because that's actually the only way to get her off the hook in front of Eric, who's a real dangerous character. And then obviously later, they come together.
