Last year, in Divergent, we got acquainted with the film’s vast, divided dystopia. This year, inInsurgent, we get to see that future world all torn up. So promise the movie’s stars and makers in exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming sequel.
Audiences who watched last spring’s sci-fi/action movie Divergent might be surprised to learn that costar Kate Winslet was five months pregnant when she shot her scenes. Winslet — who plays duplicitous community leader Jeanine Matthews — had her costumes refitted after she shared the news of her pregnancy, says director Neil Burger. “There was a point at which we were thinking about whether Shai [Shailene Woodley] should head-butt Kate or punch her in the face,” recalls producer Lucy Fisher.
Two by two, a mass of animal species march onto the big screen — and into the pop culture canon — with this weekend’s “Noah.” Darren Aronofsky’s retelling of the Bible’s ultimate account of seagoing survival stars Russell Crowe as Noah himself. And (spoiler alert!) Noah’s double rainbow of animals, so to speak, proves unsinkable.
So, you (and apparently all your friends) saw "Divergent" this weekend, and now you want to know all the nitty gritty details about everyone in the movie, right? Like Theo James — where has he been all our lives? And how about that Miles Teller guy who maybe made you kind of not hate Movie Peter as much as you hated Book Peter? Well, we’re right there with you on that and are happy to help with this handy dandy little breakdown of what the stars of “Divergent” have coming up next (aside from"Insurgent," for those who’ll return for movie two).
“I was only 20… I wasn’t prepared,” Kate Winslet recalled of the torrent of interest that stampeded her way from the runaway success of “Titanic” in 1997. With its success, powered by packs of teenage girls who consumed the tale of Jack and Rose over and over again, it is widely credited as having brought that demographic to the moviegoing power, igniting a wave that would give us the “Twilight” and “Hunger Games” films, as well as the newest entrant to the category, “Divergent,” which opens this weekend, starring none other than Winslet herself as the controlling, dystopian faction leader Jeanine Matthews. “It was a really hard time,” said Winslet, now 38.
