Our Divergent Trailer Reactions!

Posted on Updated on

The theatrical trailer for the upcoming adaptation for Divergent released on November 13, 2013 and we for one reason or another, we couldn’t bring you our reactions – but fear not initiates, for here they are, better late than never we say!

Check out this trailer below :

And our reactions, excuse the fangirling that will ensue … but tread carefully, spoilers from the book ahead!

1

We start off with a picturesque view of sunrise over the field.

A shot of Mrs. Prior cutting Beatrice’s golden locks and tying her hair into an Abnegation bun – straight from the books, folks!

6

The skyline of a dystopian Chicago.

7

From the far side, Erudite (blue), Abnegation (grey), Candor (black and white) and Amity (red and yellow) initiates line up before the building. Where are the Dauntless in black you ask?

8

Why … the Dauntless are jumping out of the trains!

9

Seems like the Choosing Ceremony speech is being given by Jeanine Matthews in the film!

10

It may be the post-apocalyptic world, but it doesn’t mean that you forget to use fake eyelashes and mascara!

One of the simulations in which Tris wakes up – even though this was paired with her test simulation in the trailer, we are pretty sure it’s from another point in the film.

15

Tris, the first jumper, jumps right in!

16

And look who is waiting there to greet her!

17

We know Tris, we know, we would be in the same condition if we met Four.

19

Lets just address the fact that Four is a BOSS when it comes to training new initiates!

21

Bad Peter, very bad!

22

Do you feel the tingles?!

23

Tris sure does!

24

Tris volunteers for the knife-throwing!

26

And Four goes all out!

27

“I want to be Brave and Selfless and Intelligent and Honest and Kind.” *Melts and then dies*

29

Oh the Dauntless, if they aren’t leaping into or out of the trains, then they are hanging on to them!

Some scenes from the climax of the film.

The Dauntless headquarters has been so perfectly carved out from our imagination!

34

THE FEELS!! YOU GUYS! THE FEELSSSSSSS!!

33

You guys, probably one of my favourite parts of the book!

35

and another favourite – the ziplining scene!

So tell us which were your favourite parts from the trailer and which scenes are you excited to see when the film comes out on March 21, 2014?

Also check out the official poster featuring Four and Tris below –

The colours, the tagline, the two leads and a view of dystopian Chicago – we can hardly wait!

Excited, much?

Hello fellow Divergent fangirls!

Here’s a little recap of the Divergent cast and panel from this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con!
A lot of people weren’t able to keep up due to time zones and international broadcasting, and so voila… We have it all laid out for you!

 

There were the Entertainment Weekly interviews…

Highlights

–          Ansel talking about playing Shailene’s brother in Divergent to playing her lover in TFIOS.

–          Theo discussing his new porno coming up… I know, girls. I know.

–          Veronica and her Mom have cameos!

You can find these interviews here:

 

And then there were the MTV interviews…

–          Theo and Shai sitting so close.

–          The cast haven’t been told anything about Allegiant, the only person who knows anything is Neil.

Basically, it was pretty amazing. And there were lots of fangirling moments! I don’t think I’ve stopped screaming since.
