Shailene Woodley is back as Tris Prior in the first of the two-part finale to the “Divergent” series, “Allegiant.” The newest trailer teases a very different world for Tris and her friends, including Four (Theo James), Peter (Miles Teller), Caleb (Ansel Elgort), Christina (Zoe Kravitz) and Tori (Maggie Q). “Allegiant” is based on the book of the same name by Veronica Roth, but the second part of the book will be adapted into a separate film, called “Ascendant,” a change from “Allegiant – Part 1” and “Allegiant – Part 2,”Read More
“Mad Max: Fury Road” was undoubtedly one of the big winners of this year’s Comic-Con, with a nearly 5 minute reel of footage that impressed the 6,500 people inside Hall H. Now, luckily, a slightly condensed version has been made available online in the first trailer for the George Miller reboot of the classic dystopian franchise. Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and more star. “Mad Max: Fury Road” comes out on May 15, 2015.Read More
The acclaimed “Mad Max” series is adding a fourth film to its archive with “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The original “Mad Max” created by George Miller premiered in 1979 to an audience that eagerly devoured the apocalyptic action thriller. Even after all this time, Miller is again helming the film, but now with Tom Hardy taking over Mel Gibson’s career-making role as Max Rockatansky. It will also star “X-Men’s” Nicholas Hoult as Nux, presumably one of the people fleeing with Max across the Wasteland. Set in a post-apocalyptic world of violence andRead More
Shailene Woodley in "Divergent"
At this point it’s not a surprise anymore but today it’s been made official: The final installment of the Shailene Woodley-led “Divergent” franchise, titled “Allegiant,” will be split into two films, following in the footsteps of “Harry Potter,” “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” The first film opened on March 24th and promptly broke the YA franchise curse suffered by so many other hopefuls in the past couple of years, taking in $55 million its opening weekend and hitting $100 million less than three weeks in. The first sequel, “Insurgent,” wasRead More
Shailene Woodley in "Divergent"
Here’s the problem with “Divergent.” The book just wasn’t that great. It was popular, sure, but Veronica Roth built her dystopian world on a convoluted caste system that doesn’t make any sense, setting her characters on a course of action that inevitably makes little sense either. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), our protagonist, is left to rebel against a society that could never have existed in the first place, and her struggle, meant to be strong and heroic, feels more like common sense. Instead of marveling at her intuition, you’re leftRead More
