‘Divergent’ Teaser: The Five Best Scenes according to MTV

MTV shared what they thought the best five scenes from the Divergent Teaser Trailer were…..

tr1

Being Different
When Abnegation-born Beatrice undergoes her aptitude testing (a requirement for all 16-year-olds), she’s delivered unsettling results by administrator Tori (Maggie Q): “You’re different. You don’t fit into a category. They can’t control you. They call it Divergent. You can’t let them find out about you.”

“And what if they already know?” Beatrice asks.

“Then you’re already dead,” Tori warns.

Those words haunt Beatrice, and instead of staying with her friends and family in the faction she knows, she decides to pledge the Dauntless.

Taking A Flying Leap
Of course, being an initiate in the most fearless of factions is no mean feat. One of Beatrice’s first tasks is to jump from the roof of a seven-story building into Dauntless headquarters — through an ominous black hole. Here we see her, still clad in her Abnegation gray, make the perilous leap, proving her mettle to both the Dauntless leaders and her fellow initiates.

tr3

Going To The Mat
Initiation begins with physical training. Tris (renamed and in her Dauntless black) takes her punches from rival Peter, and later we see her face down hurtling knives, with one whizzing perilously close to her face, nicking her ear and drawing blood. What you don’t see here is that it’s her mentor/love interest Four who’s doing the throwing. (Those Dauntless have a funny way of showing their affection…)

tr4

Getting A Better Vantage Point
In what will probably become one of the most iconic scenes from the film, Tris and Four climb the dilapidated Navy Pier Ferris wheel during a game of Capture the Flag to get a superior view of their competition. It’s a pivotal moment, not only because Four overcomes his own fear (heights!), but because the two share a palpable moment of sexual tension that will soon pay off.

tr5

Kissing Her Hard
And, speaking of pay off … Tris and Four kiss! Tris and Four kiss!

James, who stopped by MTV’s VMA All Access Experience ahead of Sunday’s ceremony, described the smooch thusly to Josh Horowitz: “I just went at it hard, to be honest, because I thought that’s how she wanted it. I thought to assuage any awkwardness I would just go for it. She was kind of batting away my hands. It was kind of nice because we had Miles as Peter literally in the background as we were kissing. He was making hissing noises which actually added to the sexuality.”

What do you think? What was your favourite scene from the teaser trailer?

I loved the “hard kiss” and Tris’ hand “grazing Tobias’ back tattoos” but I also LOVED the knife throwing scene:

Andrew Prior actor Tony Goldwyn talks filming Divergent’s Prior family scenes and more

tonyg

Actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays Tris’s dad Andrew Prior in Divergent, talked to Hollywood Crush about the movie, and his role. Check out excerpts below:

On the Prior family:

“We had a wonderful scene that I participated in which was the family together the night before the choosing ceremony,” he said. “It was very good casting of the four of us, Shailene and Ashley [Judd] and Ansel [Elgort], the family, the Priors. We just had this great chemistry together and really felt like a family [living in] the world that Neil [Burger, director] created visually of the Abnegation. We had these two really wonderful days shooting these two scenes, and I’m really excited to see how those turn out.”

On possible reappearance in sequels:

“Veronica Roth said, flatteringly, one of her biggest regrets is that she didn’t write Andrew into the other books, that she killed Andrew off, so I don’t think there’s much hope for a resurrection of the ghost of Andrew. But we’ll see.”

What do you think? Additional scenes in Insurgent or Allegiant involving flashbacks wouldn’t hurt, would it? But I personally think those kind of scenes – if added at all – would stick to Natalie, since Tris sounded a bit closer to her mom.
