New ‘DIVERGENT’ still featuring Tris and Caleb at the Choosing Ceremony!

USA today released a brand new Divergent photo of Tris and Caleb at the Choosing Ceremony.


USA Today also did an interview with Shailene Woodley:

CHICAGO — The sacred Choosing Ceremony Day has arrived on the set of Divergent.

One by one, the candidates step onto the marble altar in front of hundreds of citizens, standing before five ceramic bowls to make their fateful decision: Which of the five social factions will they join in the socially stratified world of this dystopian future?

The heroine of Divergent, Tris (Shailene Woodley), steps cautiously onto the altar, stopping before the ceremonial bowls representing Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Amity (the peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent) and Dauntless (the brave).

She pauses for 15 seconds, deep in thought, before finally drawing a knife over her palm above her chosen bowl.

“Dauntless,” a voice cries out.

The Dauntless faction in the auditorium lets out a berserk cheer in the way that only the chosen protectors of a society can. But Tris still seems distracted as she makes her way over to her new family and sits quietly in the front row.

It is, after all, a life-changing decision and a blood bond with her new faction, which requires Tris to leave her parents, who look crestfallen in the Abnegation section.

“There’s a lot going through Tris’ head. This is a definitive decision,” Woodley says afterward. “She doesn’t think her home is ever going to be reopened after this. So she’s understandably extremely emotional.”

But the scene, shot in Chicago’s modern Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist in front of hundreds of extras, has an even deeper meaning for Woodley, 21. Taking the role of Tris in the potential blockbuster franchise — Divergent is the first of three books from Veronica Roth and is on a pace to sell 4 million copies — was a step Woodley insists was taken with a great deal of care.

Taking an on-set break on a steamy July afternoon (with the church’s air-conditioning system in disrepair), still wearing her Abnegation garb, Woodley recalls the thought process of joining Divergent (out March 21).

“It was a huge decision,” she says. “At first, I was not planning to take this opportunity, because it felt overwhelming. If there is success and if it happens in a way that was anything similar to Hunger Games or Twilight, that’s extremely intimidating. Especially for a very homely nature chic like me.”

Neil Burger also added a few notes:

“This movie has a massive audience and machine behind it. It exposes her to a different situation for her life. It’s a different thing from the independent movies that she’s been doing, which are really great. ”

“She was this rebel where she had this cockiness, yet underneath, she was vulnerable and capable of all sorts of hurt,” he says. “I loved that quality about her.”

He offered her what many actresses would consider the role of a lifetime. But Woodley says she was still thinking about saying no until her mother convinced her that she would be “crazy not take this on.”

“My mother said, ‘You’ve never declined a part because of what could happen. You’ve never not done something from a place of fear,’ ” Woodley says. ” ‘You cannot say, this is a big-budget film, so I don’t want to do it. You have to decide if you are passionate about it.’ “

‘ALLEGIANT’ synopsis revealed!


Yesterday we got a look at the Allegiant book covers being folded and checked for color.  Amazon has updated the Allegiant page with what is said on the back cover, Check out the synopsis below:

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Allegiant is already available for pre-order and will be available in stores on October 22nd.

Shailene Woodley will be cutting her hair for her upcoming movie The Fault in Our Stars. In TFIOS she is playing Hazel Grace Lancaster alongside Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters. TFIOS starts production in a few weeks.

Shailene is expected to cut her hair in about 2 weeks. The length is not yet known.

tfios ss

In Insurgent, Tris does a “big chop” on her hair. How will that work for the Insurgent film? I do not know, but I am sure the Summit Entertainment crew will come up with something genius.

Remember guys it’s just hair.
