Here is a great interview with Miles Teller from ‘The Walking Dead’ party at SDCC!
In this new still released today from USA Today, We get to see Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and Tris (Shailene Woodley) at the choosing ceremony! Check out what they have to say below:
CHICAGO — The sacred Choosing Ceremony Day has arrived on the set of Divergent.
One by one, the candidates step onto the marble altar in front of hundreds of citizens, standing before five ceramic bowls to make their fateful decision: Which of the five social factions will they join in the socially stratified world of this dystopian future?
The heroine of Divergent, Tris (Shailene Woodley), steps cautiously onto the altar, stopping before the ceremonial bowls representing Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Amity (the peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent) and Dauntless (the brave).
She pauses for 15 seconds, deep in thought, before finally drawing a knife over her palm above her chosen bowl.
“Dauntless,” a voice cries out.
The Dauntless faction in the auditorium lets out a berserk cheer in the way that only the chosen protectors of a society can. But Tris still seems distracted as she makes her way over to her new family and sits quietly in the front row. Click to continue reading Continue reading
I think I am still in a post SDCC hang over! To say that last week covering ‘Divergent’ at Comic Con is most def an understatement! You have seen most of our coverage from the event’s but I wanted to jot down just a few of my personal experiences!
Thursday July 18th started out our day of Divergent SDCC coverage! I got up early to go get my badge and got in my first line of the week- Starbucks!
After I got my caffeine intake, our blogger Mandy and I were off to the Hard Rock Hotel to do our 1:1’s with some of the Divergent cast! If you missed the interview, You can check it out HERE
We loved getting to meet some of the cast! As we were heading back to the Elevator, Shailene and Theo walked past us on their way to a different interview and that was my first glimpse of Theo. Wow.
After the 1:1, we headed back over to our hotel to upload video and post pictures before the press conference. It took 6 hours to load that one clip to youtube. Good Grief. We wanted a good spot for the press conference so we showed up a bit early and relaxed. We ended up getting front row and were able to get some awesome pictures from the press conference! To see the HQ pictures click HERE and HERE! Some of my highlights from the press conference were hearing what Shailene and Theo’s favorite scene’s to films were (Ferris Wheel for Shai & Four choking Tris and snapping out of the simulation for Theo) Theo’s fear being “hummus” and it sounding A LOT like he said something ELSE, and really just sitting there taking it all in! After the Press Conference, We jolted out and took a beeline for Hall H to try and catch the Divergent Panel and see the footage but the line was too long and we didn’t make it in. I retired to my hotel room to rest and update the site before the Summit Celebration that night!
Around 8:15 after changing shoes 4 times I headed out to ‘207’ at the Hard Rock Hotel where the Summit Celebration was to be held. The Hard Rock is right in the middle of San Diego’s iconic ‘Gaslamp’ District and it was alive with people. At the party, I got a chance to chat and meet pretty much everyone from the Cast as well as Veronica Roth. My night was made when Theo James busted out into a round to show off some awesome dance moves. Click HERE for that video! The conclusion I came to after being at that Party, was that we have an awesome down to earth cast. Not once did I see a cast member go hide in a VIP area. Shailene esp was having Fun and Dancing and just letting loose. I hope they keep this as the film’s progress! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy of the night:
The rest of the weekend I was BUSY, Busy, Busy doing press for SandwichJohnFilms.com in which I got to meet some more awesome people and then Sunday I spent most of the day hunting down ‘Divergent’ swag for us to give away in the coming weeks! Here is a sample of some of the stuff you have to look forward to!
The week was fantastic! Thanks for watching our Comic Con coverage and we have lots more exciting things happening in the coming weeks! -April
