DIVERGENT the Number 1 Movie in America

Everybody pat yourselves on the back, because DIVERGENT is currently the Number 1 movie in America with

"Recognizing that this potential franchise was a key part of the company's long-term prospects, Summit Entertainment (a Lionsgate company) executed a blockbuster-level marketing campaign for Divergent. While it wasn't explicitly stated in marketing material, Divergent was essentially sold as the heir to the Twilight and Hunger Games franchises. That may have made the movie look derivative to some people, but it did manage to connect with many outside of the book's fanbase: only half of the audience read the book ahead of time, which compares favorably to Twilight (74 percent) and The Hunger Games (76 percent)."

Theo James Makes Surprise Appearance at Alamo Drafthouse Dauntless Initiation Event

DIVERGENT star Theo james made a surprise appearance at the Dauntless Initiation Event hosted by Alamo Drafthouse today.

EW has the details: 
Forty-two hardcore Divergent fans were treated to a nice surprise on Thursday in Austin, Texas, when star Theo James (who plays brave and brooding Tobias Eaton, or Four, alongside Shailene Woodley’s Tris) surprised them at the Alamo Drafthouse. The fearless pack of fans, who’d gathered to participate in a field trip event testing their Dauntless potential, were stunned when the British actor  showed up to wish them courage on their adventure. They were preparing to depart on a bus for Cypress Canopy Tours, where they’d test their own initiate skills, from zip-lining to knife-throwing and hand-to hand combat. Granted, this was an unlikely group of warriors—sweet tweens and their moms, blushing women and a smattering of pale boyfriends, everybody in new, black studio-supplied Divergent t-shirts. The evening of fun chest-thumping would wrap up with a game of Capture the Flag and a Dauntless-approved hamburger barbecue.

From The Hollywood Reporter

Most young stars learn to quickly cultivate an aura of untouchability, but that is not how Shailene Woodley likes to operate. It's January on the Sundance red carpet for White Bird in a Blizzard.

The 22-year-old actress approaches a microphone-toting reporter with uncommon familiarity, slipping her hands under his semi-raised arms and giving him a robust squeeze. At first I think she must know the journalist, perhaps one of her red-carpet favorites. Then I realize she's hugging every single person before they interview her. They are all strangers. Right before the White Bird premiere, Sundance festival director John Cooper stops by backstage to congratulate Woodley. He goes in for the handshake, but she outmaneuvers him with a low body hug. He seems genuinely startled.

"WOW! I don’t even know where to begin when describing my experience at the Divergent red carpet and movie screening event. I live about 30 minutes away from the theater, so it was a pretty short trip compared to those who came from other states. My older sister, who is also a divergent fan, and I drove to the theater and arrived around 5:00 pm. Upon arrival, I got in the press line where I found some of my other friends who were also doing press. At about 6:00 pm, they started letting the press in to set up.
