While we can’t tell you what happened on the set of DIVERGENT, we can tell you that this movie is going to blow your mind.
Today, EW.com debuted the first symbol for one of the five factions. Yes, we have all seen the ones online, but hey in our opinion, the symbols just keep getting better.
Divergent isn’t due until March 2014, but we are thrilled that Summit keeps giving us all these treats! What do you think?
DAUNTLESS: fearless, undaunted.
Undaunted: courageously resolute, especially in the face of danger or difficulty; not discouraged.
It’s those two definitions (fearless, and undaunted) that I found so fascinating. Being fearless and being undaunted are two different things. And the characters in DIVERGENT struggle with that distinction.
Choose Your Faction, Face Your Fate: ‘Divergent’ Faction Symbol Coming Tomorrow »
According to the Divergent Facebook page, we’ll be getting our first look at one of the five faction symbols from the movie tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if they maintain the same sort of look as the book covers or change it up. Which symbol are you most excited to see?
Tomorrow at 12pm ET/9am PT, Entertainment Weekly will debut the exclusive first look at one of the faction symbols from the film.
Can you guess which one?
Can You Hear the Dauntless Scream in this Video? »
Veronica Roth was hanging out with the crew as they filmed downtown Chicago this afternoon around the L-train lines. It’s wonderful that she is such a great person to be able to share her experience with us through pictures and tweets!
Today was a great day to be in downtown Chicago. Lot’s of filming was happening between the Quincy and Wells stops for the pink line. Luckily we had fans and curious bystanders taking pictures and videos to share with us! Check it out!
Maybe it’s just me that is so tired of hearing the ‘That is so gross, they are brother and sister in one movie, and lovers in the next’ comments about Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley. Putting it bluntly, IT’S A MOVIE! And if this is what you are focused on, then you are probably not reading DIVERGENT or THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and seeing the beauty in each project. And seeing that these are actors, and we should appreciate exactly how good they are because they can pull it all off!
We understand that these are made-up characters in a made-up movie and nothing untoward is actually happening, but still: This is a strange decision. Of all the possible teen actors (and there are so many, according to the fan blogs), why would you choose the one guy who is already playing your lead actress’s brother in another high-profile YA franchise? It is hard enough to forget an actor’s résumé under normal circumstances; now we have to bring fake incest into this?
It might be different if they played love interests first, like, say, Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant (Sense and Sensibility before Love Actually). Somehow it is less jarring when the sexual energy is being removed from the equation; it also helps if you have a solid chunk of time — eight years, in Thompson and Grant’s case — to forget the other screen relationship ever happened. But Divergent will only have a few months’ lead on Fault, which means we’ll have to meet Woodley and Elgort as brother-sister, then watch them fall in love, and then accept them as siblings again in the Divergent sequels. It makes all four (five, probably) movies ickier, for no obvious reason other than “we liked this guy, too.”
Do you agree? What are your thoughts?
Personally, I think that I am grown enough that I can see them separately, and that I can’t wait for both projects! What do you think?
