The studio planed for this to be a large franchise like The Hunger Games (2012) or _Twilight_, but due to poor box office, critical reception and fans of the books being disappointed, the idea was scrapped and it was decided for the story to be rebooted for a television series. See more »
When Alec kicks in Madame Dorothea's door, it does not match the door when Dorothea leaves and most of the door is missing. We see it after Alec kicks it in and there is clearly more door left than what is shown a few moments later. See more »

I went to see this movie the other day and since I'm a big fan of the books I was all so excited to actually be able to see my fantasy on the big screen. But as the movie started playing everything went down the hill. They have changed basic dates which play a big part in the whole story since certain events happen at specific time and they actually change the whole story. With the exception of the funny poetry scene with Erik everything else was.. how can I put it politely? Bad. I couldn't even understand the feelings the characters were supposed to be feeling before they were spoken out loud. In the books there is a certain motive, communication-battle- communication-adventure, so you're able to understand what's going on. But in the movie you just don't get it. The movie itself is a spoiler, it gives way too much information which is supposed to stay hidden because it makes the upcoming story more interesting and breathtaking.
In conclusion, I really think that the books had good potential for becoming a movie without changing everything, which unfortunately happened.
(Read the books, they are amazing. and skip the movie)
Dear Hollywood, make a remake.
