Summit Entertainment has released a number of new images from director Neil Burger’s (Limitless) upcoming Veronica Roth adaptation Divergent. The film is on track for a big opening weekend, and from what little footage we've seen, I’ve really liked Burger’s visual take on the dystopian world. Moreover, the prospect of seeing The Spectacular Now stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller together again onscreen (albeit under very different circumstances) is highly enticing. For those unaware, the futuristic thriller takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities. Woodley plays a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups, and faces grave consequences if it’s revealed that she’s “Divergent”. Hit the jump to check out the new images, which fans of the book will be happy to know include looks at nearly the entire cast and even Roth’s cameo. »

The 23-year-old, who will be seen in the futuristic movie, said she wants to contribute to the cause.
"My biggest fear is that people aren't going to realise in time that we are nature, and that we need to think about that fact and respect it. People talk about global warming, the oceans, and the rainforest, and we need to be talking about it, but nothing's going to change unless we change ourselves," Woodley said in a statement.

Divergent , based on the popular book series, takes us to a near future version of Chicago, a ravaged metropolis fenced in after an ambiguous "war." Citizens are divided into five factions to maintain order: Abnegation for the charitable, Amity for pacifists, Candor for the honest and judicious, Dauntless for the brave, and Erudite for the intellectual. At age 16, citizens undergo an aptitude test which determines whether they should stay within the factions they're born into or choose their own. Those who belong to no faction are dubbed the Factionless. And then there are the "Divergents" or individuals who fall into more than one group, making them extremely rare - and extremely hunted. Such is the case for Tris (Shailene Woodley), a Divergent who chooses »

Summit Entertainment is hoping that its "Divergent" film will be as big as "The Hunger Games." In fact, Shailene Woodley, the star of "Divergent," is now being referred to as the next Jennifer Lawrence. It's not clear whether "Divergent" will be a hit and go on to become a franchise, but the one thing that Woodley says that it won't be, is like "Twilight." "'Twilight,' I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship," she told Teen Vogue, referring to the romance between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). The interview then switched to questions about Woodley's personal life and whether she and her on-screen romance Theo James are dating in real life. "I literally have not had a boyfriend in almost five years," she admitted. "I've never even hooked up with anybody I've worked on a movie with." Woodley went on to clarify that she »
Shailene Woodley stars opposite Theo James in the upcoming movie Divergent, in which their characters, stubborn Tris Prior and the mysterious Four, become friends and eventually more throughout the dystopian film. Their chemistry on screen was certainly something that the fandom will fangirl over.
James commented that out of all his complex fighting stunts, his toughest stunt was with Woodley.
"I just wanted to practice as much as possible the kissing scene," he laughed. Then he continued seriously, "In a real way, we wanted that to be as good as possible because it's the only time they get together. It's the only time there's a kissy, smoochy scene. We wanted it to be to be real, and not air on the side of lots of cheese. Hopefully it's earned, because there's not a lot of batting eyelids and fawning towards each other. It's a tough, complex, and intricate relationship."

Shailene Woodley, of the new film "Divergent," and comic Artie Lange were guests on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday (March 12), where host Jimmy Fallon subjected them to a new game called "Double Turtleneck Ping Pong." Watch above. It goes ... about as well as you'd expect.
Below, Shailene busts out some herbs for Fallon, recommending them for various things that might ail a person: Ginger for an upset tummy, raw garlic if you're feeling sick. Then she busts out a horseradish root, which apparently Fallon was unaware of how that one looks in root form. Hee.
"Divergent" opens nationwide Friday, March 21.
In the post-"Twilight" era, the folks behind various up-and-coming contenders for the Ya crown have often had to field questions that inevitably draw comparisons to the vampire/werewolf/human love story that kicked off a phenomenon. And for the most part, those queries lead to answers focused on underscoring the differences, and how one world-in-the-balance-movie-with-teens differs from another world-in-the-balance-movie-with-teens. But Shailene Woodley has made it pretty unequivocal that "Divergent" might be better for your overall mental health than anything Bella, Edward and Jacob served up. “ ‘Twilight,’ I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship. She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself,” Woodley told Teen Vogue. “What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve.” Zing. Indeed, Woodley is pleased her film touches upon current issues including a surveillance. »
