You and Shailene are in another movie together coming up, “Divergent.” In this one, you’re not having sex, you’re trying to stab her in the face with a knife.
Well, I’m not stabbing her in the face with a knife.

Yeah, but you’re not her friend necessarily, either. I mean, I’m not going to spoil it.
I don’t think we can spoil this, that book sold 2.5 million copies or something. But yeah, It’s a different context.

Did you read that series?
I read the first one, and by that I mean I read the beginning and then I pretty much just read where my character was because I didn’t really feel like I needed to know what was going on with Four and Tris and their stuff to play my part. I just scanned for anytime Peter was talked about, which was not as much as I’d like it to be.

Are you going to rewrite it to be the star of the second? Are you taking that up with Veronica Roth?
Veronica Roth said that Peter is her favorite character in the second one. And then in the third he apparently comes around even more. I think he’s pretty surface level in the first one, you don’t really understand what he’s doing. So that was a challenge.

Yeah, he gets a little more complex as the series goes on. Do you know what happens in the third one, “Allegiant”? Do you have any secrets?
No. It is pretty interesting, though. Whatever that character does, I will be embodying. I hope I — well, I don’t want to say I hope I die, but I’ve never played a character that dies.

How would you want to die on screen, whether that character or another?
I’d like to be in a big shootout. Do the, like, the Godfather thing. Poison would be kind of cool, like you’re eating something and then the person who fed it to you just starts smiling. I just want to say, “It’s poison!”[clutches throat, chokes, falls onto table] I think it’s gotta be dramatic. It’s like improv, whenever you die, you have to make it a big thing. They would probably tell me to tone it back, because I would die very over top.

“This kid just won’t stop dying.”
“He needs to go and learn how to die.”

They’d be like, “You’re killing me.”
Ba-dum-bum-bum.

‘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.

tr2

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:

I am a visual learner, and I love this! Plus it makes it easy to explain to my husband, or friends who haven’t read Divergent yet (WHAT?! I know.. they live under a rock!!) What the factions are all about….
