Not only has a glimpse at Veronica Roth paying another visit to the "Divergent" set been shared by producer John J. Kelly on Twitter today, but a bit of outdoor filming was observed by some nearby fans who had the mind to whip out a camera in time to share the action as well. From On Location Vacations, the attached video shares a bit of Dauntless activity in the West Monroe Street area. Note the proximity of those running to those train tracks. Notice anything else here? While on the subject of small set glimpses, actor Miles Teller doled out another one of his signature teaser images on Thursday, writing "Exclusive first look photo of #Divergent 'The Pit' set." Sure, it was just a shot of the electric ri . »

This is a great picture from the Divergent set, of the pivotal scene where Tris (Shailene Woodley) is perched to jump off of a building. I think you get that from this picture for sure, and it is a really good start for how I pictured it from the book. My favorite part of the picture is actually the first look at the Abnegation faction’s clothing. It’s actually a little bit more complicated than I had imagined. I had pictured it even more plain.
Pretty awesome though.

Today, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled a new image from "Divergent," and this time it's of Shailene Woodley literally transforming from Beatrice Prior the Abnegation faction-born transfer into Tris, the oh-so-brave "First Jumper" of the group. As explained by director Neil Burger for the uninitiated, so to speak, "In this photo she’s already jumped off the train and onto a seven story building as part of the initiation rite for the Dauntless ... The next thing they have to do is jump from the building and down through a courtyard that has a deep, black hole. It’s terrifying." View slideshow: 'Divergent' movie pictures About filming the scene, Burger said, "We’d been nervously planning it because it is dangerous and there’s a lot of people on that roof. We had to pull it off safely ... characters involved in the image, too - Theo James as Four, Miles Teller as Peter, »
Afraid of heights? Let’s just say you probably wouldn’t make it in Dauntless.
The highly anticipated adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent is still filming in Chicago, but EW has gotten this exclusive first look of Tris (Shailene Woodley) out on a ledge and perched to jump as part of initiation into her faction. For those of who haven’t read the books, in the dystopian world of Divergent, all of society is divided into five factions: Abnegation (selfless); Erudite (intelligent); Candor (honest); Amity (peaceful) and Dauntless (brave). Our heroine, sixteen-year-old Tris Prior, has chosen the Dauntless »

Today, there've been a ton of "Divergent"-related newsbites, not the least of which was this morning's reveal of the cover for book three, "Allegiant." Via blog and a brand new interview, Veronica Roth has spoken up to provide a wee bit-o-insight into th ... h Miles Teller about Peter, which was really interesting. Peter is a little confusing, as a character, and he’s definitely one of the stranger characters. So, I had to explain some things to him that I think he was interested in figuring out. I also talked to Theo James a little bit about Four, and Shailene Woodley a little bit about Tris. I’m sure more of those conversations will happen »
Based on the best-selling first book in a trilogy, Divergent is set in a future society, divided into factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue and including Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful) and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all 16-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives, but when that day comes for Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Shailene Woodley), her choice will surprise everyone, including herself. Directed by Neil Burger (Limitless), the film also stars Theo James, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney and Zoe Kravitz. With the film now in production in Chicago, Collider was invited, along with a handful of other online outlets, to chat with author Veronica Roth about what this whole experience has been like for her. »

After four days, Iron Man 3 was running just 13% behind The Avengers at the same stage of its UK run, suggesting that the film would finish a lot closer to the superhero team-up (£51.9m) than to either of the earlier Iron Man movies. Seven days later, and it's a similar story, with Iron Man 3 at an impressive £24.6m as of Sunday night, a slim 18% behind Avengers at the same point of release. If it continues at a similar pace, Iron Man 3 should end up around £42-43m here. The first Iron Man film maxed out at £17.4m, while the sequel made it to £21.3m, so the third episode looks set to double its predecessor.

Part 2 of the saga continues the journey of Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) as war now looms.

★★☆☆☆ If it wasn't for the fact that 21 and Over (2013) is directed by the writing duo which gave birth to The Hangover franchise, you'd be forgiven for accusing this boozy frathouse comedy of outright plagiarism. Cut from very much the same cloth as Todd Phillips' curiously popular gross-out comedy, 21 and Over takes the 'boys will be boys' mantra down a relatively predictable and, in comparison to its peers, rather timid route. Sipping a can of Busch beer from a brown paper bag in the back of a taxi, our first impression of Miller (Miles Teller) is the perfect set-up to the particular teen comedy's blithe persona.
Miller is about to meet old school friend Casey (Skylar Astin), a po-faced, straight-a student destined to spend his life in the high pressure surroundings of Wall Street. This comically diverse couple is on their way to meet another old acquaintance, Jeff Chang (Justin Chon »

Running Time: 93 minutes.
Synopsis: The night before his big medical school interview, a promising student celebrates his 21st birthday with his two best friends.
The Hangover has a lot to answer for. On the plus side we have it to thank for the blossoming career of Bradley Cooper, but on the other we have the onslaught of disappointing gross-out comedies that followed. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are responsible for penning the first episode in The Hangover trilogy, as well as The Change-up which followed and Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past which preceded it. With 21 & Over, the duo make their long-awaited directorial debuts with a film they hope will capture the same spirit and mainstream success as their previous scripted efforts.
Starring a relatively unknown cast, 21 & Over basically covers the same ground as the first two Hangover movies, »

I'm So Excited (15)
Almodóvar responds to his country's economic woes with camp hysteria and Carry On humour. In many ways this airborne disaster farce – anarchic, absurdist, garishly stylish and gleefully debauched – is a return to the Spanish auteur's subversive roots. But there's a serious subtext to the silliness, and the metaphors are brought back down to earth for a satisfying landing.
The Eye Of The Storm (15)
The imminent death of Rampling's matriarch throws an aristocratic family's dysfunction into relief in this Aussie drama, whose overstuffed story is redeemed by three watchable leads.

Shailene Woodley had her coming out party in The Descendents and now she finds herself playing Mary Jane in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, already receiving good buzz for The Spectacular Now (which I'll be seeing next week) and landing the lead role in the adaptation of author Veronica Roth's New York Times best seller Divergent. The story is described as a thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it's too late. In addition to Woodley the cast includes Kate Winslet, Theo James, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen and Amy Newbold. »

Another day; another American Pie influenced teen comedy pillages its way into cinemas. 21 And Over tells the story of Jeff Chang, a student, who goes on the bender to end all benders. And of course the following day he has a huge interview for med school, meaning his bender wasn't the best idea. But thankfully his friends are on hand to drag him to through the experience. From the opening credits, 21 & Over starts to grate on your nerves. From the constant crane and dolly shots, to the soundtrack it gets irritating rather quickly. And the last thing anybody wants with a comedy is to get irritated. As our hapless / legless heroes go from bar to bar, Jeff Chang (who is constantly called Jeff Chang and never Jeff) gets more and more obliterated and ends up in a number of scenarios. None of which are particularly funny. All the time, his »

The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore don't stray too far out of their comfort zone for directorial debut 21 & Over, a fast-paced 'One Wild Night' comedy about college students celebrating a landmark birthday.
School friends Miller (Miles Teller) and Casey (Skylar Astin) take a road trip to visit pal Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) on campus for his 21st birthday. The catch? Jeff Chang (who is referred to by his full name throughout the film's entirety) has a Med School interview the next morning and his strict father wants him to follow in the family's proud medical tradition. Things quickly go awry, however, as Jeff Chang gets wasted, goes missing and sends his drunken pals into a panic about getting him home.
Employing a comedic and structural »
Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars
21 & Over might be the brainchild of writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore – who may as well change their names by deed poll to “the writers of The Hangover” – but the marketing conveniently forgets that they’re also writers of Four Christmases, Ghost of Girlfriends Past, The Hangover Part II and The Change-Up. Though its premise derives shamelessly from the former success, this stillborn 20-something comedy has more in common with the execrable majority of the team’s output.
Indeed, the premise to this film is virtually identical to The Hangover at a core level, but that’s really where the similarities begin and end. College student Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) has just turned 21 years old, and his two old high school buddies, the sensible, smart Casey (Skylar Astin) and the mental troublemaker Miller (Miles Teller), unexpectedly turn up on his doorstep for a night of heavy partying. »

The screenwriters of The Hangover have directed a tiresome, misjudged grossout comedy
Defiant grossout and uncompromising immaturity usually win very high marks from this reviewer, but not when they're allied to an eerie absence of funny lines and funny ideas. This post-teen comedy plays a little like Harold & Kumar, and a little like the depressing American Pie sequels, but with no gags. Miles Teller has the Seann William Scott role of the wisecracking party animal who dragoons his more straitlaced buddy Casey (Skylar Astin) and their mutual friend Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) for an ill-advised night on the town to celebrate Jeff's 21st birthday – and his official drinking age – heedless of the fact that Jeff's crucial med exam is totally the next morning. What could possibly go wrong? The racial stereotype gags about Asians being super-overachievers are frankly tiresome and misjudged, though probably no more tiresome and misjudged than anything else in the movie. »
