Lionsgate Surprises No One, Splits Final 'Divergent' Book Into Two Parts

By JJ Duncan on
(Lionsgate|Summit)After the success of Divergent, it should come as no surprise that Lionsgate/Summit is now planning on adapting the rest of the young-adult book trilogy for the big screen. And of course, just like they did with the final chapter in Twilight, and like they will do with The Hunger Games, the final Divergent book, Allegiant, will be split into two movies.“Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material...Read Full Story

7 Ways 'Divergent' Follows Its Faction-Based Premise to Absurdity

By JJ Duncan on
A week after its wide release, Divergent's central premise is pretty widely understood. A 16-year-old girl finds herself struggling to fit into a dystopian future society that's organized itself into five strictly-regimented "factions." The factions are extensions of our existing personality types, and each has codes — some expressed, some just understood — its members are expected to follow.

There's one major exclusion (the knife in the eye), one big addition (a final fight...Read Full Story

By Deena Bustillo on
Getty ImagesWay, way back before Shailene Woodley was a big movie star, she had a small role on TV: as Kaitlyn Cooper on The O.C. Yep, a decade ago the Divergent star played Marissa Cooper's little sister. And here's proof:Woodley's role was short-lived, though, since her character was shipped off to boarding school in the second season. And when they brought Kaitlyn back in later seasons, showrunners picked another actress. "I was 11 and I was on as a guest, recurring character, or whatever...Read Full Story

Shailene Woodley Basically Saves 'Divergent'

By JJ Duncan on
First, Divergent is a viable franchise. Second, Shailene Woodley is a star deserving of all the praise being heaped upon her. Those were the two main thoughts I had after walking away from the first big screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's dystopian teen book trilogy. I had questions about both going in. Woodley was brilliant in last year's The Spectacular Now, but it was a relief to put to rest any worries that the performance was a fluke. And Divergent? To be honest I wasn't crazy about the...Read Full Story
