We recently got a trailer for Divergent and we’ve been on cloud 9 ever since.

Today I believe we just got bumped up.to cloud 10 because Summit has released a brand new still from the Divergent trailer of Tris. The still features Shailene Woodley as Tris preparing to jump into the Dauntless Compound.

Check it out:

Miles Teller Talks DIVERGENT with Next Movie!

Next Movie sat down with Miles Teller where they talked Divergent, Shailene Woodley’s new hair cut and The Spectacular Now.

You and Shailene are in another movie together coming up, “Divergent.” In this one, you’re not having sex, you’re trying to stab her in the face with a knife.
Well, I’m not stabbing her in the face with a knife.

Yeah, but you’re not her friend necessarily, either. I mean, I’m not going to spoil it.
I don’t think we can spoil this, that book sold 2.5 million copies or something. But yeah, It’s a different context.

Did you read that series?
I read the first one, and by that I mean I read the beginning and then I pretty much just read where my character was because I didn’t really feel like I needed to know what was going on with Four and Tris and their stuff to play my part. I just scanned for anytime Peter was talked about, which was not as much as I’d like it to be.

Are you going to rewrite it to be the star of the second? Are you taking that up with Veronica Roth?
Veronica Roth said that Peter is her favorite character in the second one. And then in the third he apparently comes around even more. I think he’s pretty surface level in the first one, you don’t really understand what he’s doing. So that was a challenge.

Yeah, he gets a little more complex as the series goes on. Do you know what happens in the third one, “Allegiant”? Do you have any secrets?
No. It is pretty interesting, though. Whatever that character does, I will be embodying. I hope I — well, I don’t want to say I hope I die, but I’ve never played a character that dies.

Miles Teller talks DIVERGENT-The Hunger Games Comparisons!

On Monday, Miles Teller sat down and talked with Vulture. During the interview Miles talks the Divergent trailer, Peter and the Divergent-Hunger Games comparisons.

Check out what Miles had to say:

So the Divergent trailer premiered last night, too. I think I see Peter kicking Tris?
Yeah. That’s my knee. The trailer could have used some more Peter.

They did bring you all the way out here. Are you at all disappointed you’re playing Peter as opposed to the heartthrob, Four? And did you audition for Four?
Well, Theo [James, who plays Four] is very tan. [Mocks sadness.] He’s always going to be tanner than me. No, I auditioned for Four originally and maybe, yeah, that would have been cool to do. But it’s nice to play against type. I think I play usually very likable characters, and so it was refreshing to be on set and not have to make people laugh. It was just like, Get in shape and pick on Shailene. That’s really all I do in that whole movie, just pick on her.

How did you go from maybe playing Four to playing Peter?
I auditioned for Four and then they said I wasn’t going to go further. I said okay. And then the producers had seen Spectacular Now — this was like months after I auditioned, maybe a year later. So they had seen Spectacular Now and they said, “There’s this part Eric maybe you could play.” I said, “I don’t know” — because [as Eric] I’m supposed to be intimidating to Theo. I don’t know if that works. Plus I think Eric would be a little older than me. So then they said, “What about Peter?” And then Shailene shot me a text message saying, “Please come do this movie with me.” It seemed like a good idea: Kate Winslet, the director ofLimitless …

You won’t get any scenes with Kate Winslet this movie, right? It’s following closely with the book?
I didn’t get any scenes with Kate. I left as she was coming. So I’m looking forward to that in the second one. She’s fantastic. I saw Titanic when I was 11 with my girlfriend and it was pretty special.

You had a girlfriend when you were 11?
Yeah. When I was 11, that was a cool year for me. It was the first time that I made out with a girl. And I just think Titanic … being able to go to a theater and seeing such an epic love story that lasted three hours and your parents aren’t there — it’s like you’re in a cocoon. It’s a great freakin’ movie.

It is. Do you feel the stress of the Hunger Games comparisons?
No. I mean, maybe Shailene does. But for me, I just kind of come in and play Peter. But I think Hunger Games is — you look at Jennifer Lawrence, and she’s a pretty great actress. If it’s anywhere close to Hunger Games, that would be great. Because then you get what’s called “international value,” which I don’t have. So once I get that, then I can get movies made. Like Spectacular Now, we got made pretty much because of Shailene.
