The Divergent Series: ALLEGIANT opens on March 18th, but eOne and Dork Shelf want to send you and a guest to an advanced screenings in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, and Victoria!
Insurgent is the obligatory sequel to Divergent, the latest series in a trend of young adult literature adaptations about dystopian societies... it ain't great but at least it ain't vampires.
Enter for a chance to win a special Divergent prize pack, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films, that includes a set of books, necklaces, a hooded sweatshirt, a copy of the film's soundtrack, and a pair of run-of-engagement passes to see the film!
The first thirty minutes of Divergent, the first in yet another young adult novel series trying to cash in on the success of The Hunger Games and the lack of Harry Potter in the marketplace, are really incomprehensibly bad. Then, almost miraculously, the film gives the audience two more hours of film and actually finds a way to make it entertaining.
We talk to Theo James, leading man of the next big YA novel adaptation Divergent about his character’s internal struggles, what being in a franchise could mean for his career, his fears of being objectified, why people seem to be drawn to dystopian narratives, and why he approaches every job the same way regardless of size or potential success.
