SDCC Recap- TrisandFour head’s to Comic Con!

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! tumblr_mq5m7kvjy51rc7avoo1_500After 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:
