it has potential:
“Book sales of the Divergent franchise are approaching the 3 million mark and continue to compare favorably to The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises at a similar point in their trajectory,” said Feltheimer, according to transcript provided by Seeking Alpha.

 

I think what helps it is that a lot of its fans are also thg fans. the two fandoms overlap a lot.

 

I'm gonna say, watch out for this one. it has the most potential out of all the developing tween franchises.

Lol. That flaming ring logo poster. They're really trying hard to sell it as the new Hunger Games, aren't they?

Why are y'all always rooting for some paranormal romance twilight knock off???

These are the lowliest of stories and they thankfully usually fail. They are garbage as books - and translate very bad to cinema. Hope this here finds as much success as the last one, Beautiful Creatures.


Shay's opinion on superhero and YA movies: they have oversaturated the market, and I hated them even before that happened, for the same reason: superheroes are meant for children only, just like YA are obviously meant for teens, which makes them inherently stupid. There are of course exceptions for the superheroes - like Watchmen, but it is a decontsruction of the genre, so same thing. The BIG point here, though, is: superhero movies at least have a LOT of visuals and action, and expensive look. Which - especially in the recent years - more than makes up for their stupidity. Moreover, Marvel started investing in the best talents out there (directors, actors and even writers) so as to escape the terrible legacy of their moronic superhero properties - and it worked. While YA movies - they have nothing, they're just ugly, depressing and stupid. The greedy little Lionsgate should bomb and dissapear completely.

Majority of the Divergent fans are Hunger Games fans so yeah, this won't do as good nor is the books that good.

Ends on a cliffhanger so a sequel is almost for sure right now. It'll make enough to guarantee a sequel.

Ludwig would be an awesome choice because Divergent Fraction are basically career tributes. Which is why the book and characters are less appealing. Career tribute-types (Triss, Four,etc) are far less relatable than survivalist Katniss&co.

After a Lengthy search, “Golden Boy” thesp Theo James has landed the male lead opposite Shailene Woodley in “Divergent.”

 

Miles Teller, Ray Stevenson and Aaron Eckhart are also in talks for supporting roles. Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort and Maggie Q  are also on board.

So basically this is Hunger Games with popular kids?

Theo James is 28 years old. He'll be in his 30's by the time this series is over, and his character is 18. Ah, Hollywood.

And when you think there was brouhahaha over casting 20 years old JLaw as a 16 years old.

 

Theo James looks like blonde James Franco. And yes, he can`t pass for 18 years old.
