The Divergent Series: Allegiant

If you’re a fan of the Divergent book series and The Divergent Series movies based on those books, there’s a bit of bad news being reported.

Instead of releasing the fourth and final movie, The Divergent Series: Ascendant, as was originally planned in June of next year, Lionsgate has instead decided to move the final chapter directly to television. Part of this unexpected decision is so they can set up a future spinoff TV series.

20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes
Release Date: June 6, 2013

“I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it. When nothing is too messed up that can’t be fixed by a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl does, it’s just not the truth.”

Directed by Josh Boone (Stuck in Love), The Fault in Our Stars is based on John Green’s 2012 young adult best-seller about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, (500) Days of Summer), the film stars Shailene Woodley and her Divergent co-star, Ansel Elgort.

At her mother’s behest, 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) attends a support group held in a church basement, referred to as “The Literal Heart of Jesus” by their leader Patrick (Mike Birbiglia). Hazel is diagnosed with stage 4 thyroid cancer, which has spread to her lungs. As a result, Hazel drags a portable oxygen tank behind her everywhere she goes.

Shailene Woodley Divergent header

Shailene Woodley is one of the driving forces of Divergent‘s box office success. And with the film already being a box office smash, it’s no surprise that the actress opted to continue to be that driving force and leave her role as Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 behind. Or so we thought.

Last year, Sony had announced that there would at least two more Amazing Spider-Man sequels hitting theaters. Not including the spin-off films. Originally Mary Jane was supposed to be a cameo in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which would lead to a much larger role in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. But director Marc Webb decided to streamline the story to focus on Peter and Gwen’s relationship, and decided to cut the cameo. Now Woodley has come out to talk about her decision to leave the role as MJ. Hit the jump to read more and see a video of Woodley talking about Spider-Man.

Then there are the “divergents,” those who cannot be categorized into one group, which puts them in danger, as those in charge want to rid the world of these people.

Divergent Poster Shailene Woodley and Theo James Header

Adaptation of YA Novels are a dime a dozen. So few of the ones that do launch find their way on the path of a sequel. How City of Bones did it is beyond me. But Summit Entertainment hopes that the adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s Divergent series is one of those to join the ranks of Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games.

The film is set in a futuristic Chicago where all of its citizens are separated into classes based on their personality. Shailene Woodley plays Tris, a special breed of human who cannot be identified by her personality, therefore she is seen as a threat to society by the government. Hit the jump to see both the trailer and the poster.

The first footage for Divergent made its debut last night at the MTV Video Music Awards live pre-show.

The film is set in a dystopian Chicago in a society where people are divided into five factions dedicated to a specific virtue: Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). There’s only one chance in a person’s life to switch to a different faction, and then at that point, they can never go back to their friends and family of their original faction. Then there are the “divergents,” those who cannot be categorized into one group, which puts them in danger, as those in charge want to rid the world of these people.

Summit Entertainment has released an infographic based on the 5 virtue-based factions ofDivergent. Check it out here below.

MTV VMAs Divergent footage with Shailene Woodley

The worldwide debut of the first footage from Divergent aired tonight during the live pre-show broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, NY.

Watch the footage here below.

At SDCC back in July, we got a chance to see some footage from the film, which showed Shailene Woodley‘s character, Tris, about to choose which societal faction she will belong to for life. In this newly released trailer, the footage was more focused on the fact that Tris is a “divergent,” a person who cannot be categorized into one faction, which means she’s in danger of being eradicated.

SDCC 2013: Divergent panel banner

Fans of the best-selling novel Divergent got a first look at the film adaptation today at San Diego Comic Con in Hall H. Today’s panel featured writer Veronica Roth, director Neil Burger (Limitless), and actors Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ben Lamb, Amy Newbold, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Zoe Kravitz, and Christian Madsen. Chris Hardwick was on hand as the moderator for the panel.

If you’ve never heard of Divergent before, the story follows Beatrice Prior (Woodley) and her life in a dystopian Chicago where the world is split into different factions. In this world, everyone is divided into different societies based on qualities that they are looking for, such as bravery and selflessness. Beatrice, or Tris as she becomes known, chooses a different society than what the rest of her family belongs to. Based on the footage shown, the film looks to be part Harry Potter and part Hunger Games, while having its own personality.

The footage shown at the panel was the first time anyone had seen anything from the film. In fact, director Neil Burger explained that they had just finished principal photography had just wrapped two days ago. The footage shown was filmed just so they could show it here at Comic-Con.

Sarah Gadon Joins The Cast Of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’; Is She Shailene Woodley’s Replacement?

Sarah Gadon

Ever since Sony announced that they were releasing The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 in the coming years, Shailene Woodley‘s role as Mary Jane was thrown into the rumor mill. In a matter of hours Woodley’s involvement went from being cut out of two and introduce her in 3, to her being cut out from the film entirely. Part of this reason is because Woodley is on contract to appear in an adaptation of the Divergent novel series, which is more than just one book, which also conflicts with her schedule.

It has been made clear that Mary Jane would not be a vital part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to begin with, and that her biggest role would be in the sequel. Not too long after director Marc Webb made his announcement to streamline the Mary Jane character to focus on Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy’s relationship, EW Canada reports that Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Mind, Cosmopolis) has reportedly signed on to appear in the film, which could possibly mean that Woodley’s replacement has been found.
