Comic Con: What was shown in the first footage from Divergent!

The first-ever footage from Divergent was shown to fans at the Hall H panel yesterday on San Diego Comic Con’s first day. While the footage is not available online just yet (ugh, right?!), Yahoo! Movies reported on what it included:

Fans got a sneak peek at the film, directed by Neil Burger (“Limitless”), where stars Woodley and Zoe Kravitz are seen riding a train in a futuristic Chicago.  The pair leap from the train to the top of a broken down seven story building in order to join other aspiring members of the Dauntless, a tribe of individuals in the city known for the bravery. “There are green screen ways to to that,” Burger said, “but they really climbed atop a train and jumped from it.”

The group is then challenged to dive from the rooftop into a cavernous opening more than a hundred feet below. Woodley’s character Triss volunteers to go first, landing in a net below.

“What, did you get pushed?” asks Four, a fellow member of the Dauntless played by Theo James.

The rest of the footage then showcased a training montage in which Triss stands against a wall while Four throws a series of knives at her head.

After a series of scenes showing Triss climbing a giant Ferris Wheel, boxing and throwing her own knives at a target, Four says, “Maybe you do belong here.”

Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Can’t wait for it to be available online and we get to share it with all of you!

Veronica Roth get’s emotional about the Ferris Wheel Still

Post by: aprilfaithspice

Last week on Veronica Roth’s Tumblr, The Art of Notwriting, Veronica shared with us her feelings on the Ferris Wheel shot of Tris and Four during capture the flag. I know that I fan-girled HARD when this image was released. I can’t even imagine how surreal this must have been for Veronica to be on set!

Confession: I was on set when this was likely taken, and I may have gotten a little emotional that day (and now, while looking at this photo). This is the actual Ferris wheel on Navy Pier in Chicago. So not only is it beautiful and huge, and not only are Shailene and Theo wonderful as Tris and Four, but that wheel is the real deal, the real thing I was picturing as I wrote this scene, my senior year of college, in my messy apartment with the gray shag rug that always smelled like crackers.

So, this is kind of a special moment for me. You know. A little.
