Movie Talk: Divergent

I have to admit that I’ve been excited about this movie since the first time I heard it was announced. I LOVED the book and Insurgent was fantastic too. So what are my thoughts based on the trailer?

If you’re unfamiliar with the story, you can check out my review for Divergent here.

I’m thrilled. I wasn’t hugely supportive of Shailene Woodley as Tris but based on this short glimpse – I’m confident she can play the part fantastically.

And Kate Winslet is gorgeous. There looks to be plenty of action but this little snippet of the film doesn’t give away too much of the plot.

Based on this trailer I’m even more excited for the third book and this upcoming movie.

The comments I’ve seen have people thinking that it’s just another – and not as good – version of the Hunger Games. So not true. Being dystopian in nature there are similarities but Divergent stands alone in its brilliant ideas and great plot.

Are you fans of the book? New to the world of Divergent?┬áI’d love to know what you thought.
