Divergent: Movie Review

Published by

divergent-6-la-3-16-14
Neil Burger's Divergent is the latest young adult blockbuster to hit theaters. Shailene Woodley, who, up until Divergent, had only appeared in an ABC Family TV show and a few indie films, carries the first installment with humility and wit. Her heroine, Tris, is brave, selfless and beautiful, which are all things to admire in a young female protagonist. Woodley is joined by a...

A lot of people may compare Shailene Woodley to Jennifer Lawrence. They both got their start in indie films and are now the leads in studio franchises. Aside from that and their down-to-earth personalities, Woodley is her own person and a charming one at that. Later this week, she'll appear in Neil Burger's Divergent as Tris, the...

The young adult novels turned movies are definitely garnering a lot of attention, but not each one has been a bona fide hit. Divergent promises to bring the action and drama that other movies like The Hunger Games have delivered, but the story line still doesn't make a lot of sense, especially in this latest trailer. There's been a lot of comparisons...

A Fault In Our Stars
Shailene Woodley has appeared in the Oscar-nominated The Descendents, had a breakout role this summer in The Spectacular Now, and was reviled by some fanboys for not being pretty enough to play Mary Jane Watson. Woodley has already had a storied career, and now she leads a new romantic dramedy The Fault in Our Stars, where she gets to suffer for...

'Divergent' Trailer Leaves Us With Some Questions

It's been awhile since I've watched a trailer and thought wow, I'm not entirely sure what's going on. There are so many trailers that give away a good chunk of their story right off the bat, leaving little to the imagination. In the first official trailer for Divergent, there is little revealed about the strange world that Beatrice (Shailene Woodley) lives in. It's...

The latest Divergent character poster has been revealed, and it pretty much screams Girl With Dragon Tattoo. Except for the fact that Maggie Q's character (who is featured in the poster) doesn't have a dragon but a hawk tattoo, the whole mysterious, GWTDT-vibe is totally there. Check out it out below.

Despite the fact that it won’t see a release until March 21, 2014, the PR machine for Divergent is now beginning to rev into high gear.  So far, we’ve received a teaser for the trailer, then the official teaser trailer, and now we’ve got the first official behind the scenes featurette, which attempts to sell the adaptation of a Young Adult novel as the story of a girl who...

SHAILENE WOODLEY stars in DIVERGENT
It’s fitting that the new Divergent trailer premiered during an outsized Caligula-ian orgy of crass, whorish commercialism—i.e., the MTV Video Music Awards—as it’s another in a looooong line of Young Adult adaptations that pretends to market a story of feminine independence to young teenage girls but is really, as Joss Whedon has cleverly...

Oh hey, you guys, check it out, something entirely new is hitting our theaters in 2014: Divergent, a film adaption of a book that tells the story of a young woman/teen who is kind of quiet and reserved, but who, with the help of a totes cute boy (OMG!) discovers that within her is the power to totally change the world and stuff amidst some kind of sci-fi or horror genre...

Shailene Woodley might've been dumped from the upcoming Spider-Man movie, but she's not going anywhere. The actress is the star of Summit's (yup, the same studio that gave the world Twilight) Divergent, which is based on a YA novel by Veronica Roth about a futuristic world where people are divided based on their human traits. Summit has sent over 10...

Last week, we reported to you that Shailene Woodley, who had filmed a few brief scenes as Mary Jane Watson for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, had been cut from the film, with Mary Jane slated to now appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3.  With that news came reports that Woodley would be axed altogether, and that Sony would be hiring an altogether new actress to take on...

Earlier this week, we reported to you that there had been a shake-up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast—while the villain roster continues to balloon from Electro to Rhino to a pre-Green Goblin to a rumored Vulture and Black Cat, it was reported that the film would be dropping the character of Mary Jane Watson, as played by Shailene Woodley, from the film, and would save her for...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was already a packed film. It has Electro (Jamie Foxx), The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Harry Osbourne (Dane DeHaan), Norman Osbourne (Chris Cooper) -- with mixed word if the Green Goblin shows up or not -- and possibly Black Cat (Felicity Jones) on top of Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). Something had to give,...

Given the massive success of Summit Entertainment’s Twilight film franchise, and its parent company Lionsgate doing quite well with The Hunger Games, it makes sense that Summit would be churning out as many film franchise adaptations of Young Adult novels as it possibly could.  The most recent in the line of ch-ching, ch-ching adaptations?  The...

First off, it's about time that Sony cast somebody as Mary Jane Watson. She's easily one of the most important female characters in the Spider-Man universe. Now that director Marc Webb and company are moving forward with the The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, they've found their own version of the fiery red-headed love interest in Shailene Woodley.

While the latest in Avengers 2 news typically keeps fans frothing at the notion of what Joss Whedon will attempt to pull off next, it’s easy to forget that not only did The Amazing Spider-Man do solid business this summer, it has a sequel planned for 2014, as well.  And two significant news bits leaked about the film today—one concerning the character of Mary Jane...
