UPDATE BELOW: We have another featurette/clip and it’s goooddd
ZOMG IT’S HERE! FIRST LOOK AT DIVERGENT MOVIE TRAILER. Ok, enough capslock, WATCH:
Nikki: There’s a WHOOOLLLLE lotta Kate Winslet which is interesting considering Jeanne isn’t a big part of the story in the first book and especially isn’t showing her face all the time. I mean i get why, but makes me wonder how and what else they’ve adapted.
Bekah: I KNOW. I get it. Contract thing? But I was a bit annoyed at that. More Kate than Shailene? Is that possible? Definitely made it clear that she is going to be a BIG part of it.
Good question- did they do a merger of the two? We don’t really find out about Jeanne’s bad side until the latter half or end of Divergent, right?
Also she looks VERY preggers to me. Not her body- you can’t see that, but just her face. Tired. Exhausted. Barfing a ton.
Feel free to judge me when I”m pregnant too. I deserve it.
Nikki: SHE’S PREGNANT?!?!?! WAIT, did I know this?! Is it Four’s baby? Maybe it’s some hot Factionless dude who doesn’t want to own up to it and now she’s waging war on the other factions (SPOILER!) because she’s pissed AND preggers?!
Bekah: okay you’re the 2nd person to not know she’s pregnant and this is making me wonder if I dreampt it. Googleing…
YES. she announced it June 4th (BEST DAY EVER BTW) and was hiding it during filming. Which means she was SUPER early on and therefore exactly how I think she looks. Miserable. Wants to die. Mad at the man who knocked her up. Maybe Four. That would be a fun rumor.
Nikki: They should have just written it into the script, if they’re already making her a bigger part, why not make her preggo and make someone an in utero baby killer.
Bekah: Good idea
Nikki: Well, this took a weird turn. ANYHOOOOOoooooo
Bekah: So we see Kate like RIGHT off.. and uggh.. I hate that I”m going to say this but.. Hunger Games vibe? That’s what it seemed like they were going for.. Explaining “The Games” with that linel…”The Future belongs to thpse who know where they belong”
Nikki: True, but you HAVE to explain what Divergent means, especially for the people who know NOTHING about it. It’s totally heavy handed and thinking for the audience but blllaaahhh whatever.
Bekah: Yes. I get it. I do. I just was like WHOA Hunger Games.. Maybe especially after my post yesterday
Nikki: Ok, let’s talk some FOUR cauuuuseeee FOUR!
Bekah: Exactly .. that’s all we’re here FOR anyway, right?
Nikki: You’re SO PUNny!!! HUR HUR HUR.
Bekah: So we see Four for the first time like ½ way through. A bunch of other stuff happens before that no one cares about (The guy from The Fault in our Stars is there! So is Wynona Ryder’s sister! There are some box houses!)
Nikki: I HAVE A PICTURE IN AND OUTSIDE THOSE BOX HOUSES! Cause they were right on the street in Chicago! It’s like I lived in Abnegation. It’s cool y’all I love peace and being selfless and whatever. so weird to see them in the trailer
Bekah: okay lucky you, but I’m trying to get us back to FOUR. FOUR
i dunno.. looks like she’s prepping for her ballet recital. World is ending but it’s her DREAM role!
Clara from The Nutcracker.
Nikki: So you think she did a sock bun here or that thing you can order from the infomercial? It’s no Bump-It but it’s a nice day to evening look, she has going on here.
Bekah: I bet she made her own from some recycled bottles of kombucha.
Nikki: Oh yes, how could I forget?! Same materials her earth friendly bra is made out of.
Bekah: okay before we get to Four I did want to point out the kidnapping scene is freaky looking. Good job with that dudes.
Bekah: And NOW…. We get to Four. He has a WALK ON with a purpose. It’s like. “HELLO BITCHES- YES YOU GIRLS WHO THINK I’M SEXY AND TAN- I’M HERE. Move over Rob Pattinson Ray-Bans entrance… I’m Four. I’ll kick your ass (and after you’ll drain me of my blood, but this is my time to shine so please don’t…)” I mean.. I get we’re probably not seeing his first entrance in the film, but I hope it’s as equally as epic as this trailer/sneak peek entrance.
Nikki: I hope if Summit learned anything from Twilight they learned how important that first entrance is. BAM EDWARD CULLEN. Now it needs to be BAM FOUR! And then he can BAM me.
Bekah: So Four makes his entrance.. We hear that deep sexy American accent (which i think is a bit deeper and sexier than his British Accent. Weird? We prefer British accents until it’s a British guy doing an American accent?)
Nikki: I prefer Theo talking any way he wants to talk… British… American… Swedish Chef… Valley girl… WHATEVER, talk normal to me, Theo!
Bekah: We see his elf ears– which is NOT something I’ve ever noticed before
Nikki: OMG Santa’s helper. His only fears? Candy Canes, Reindeer, Running out of cookies and milk for the big guy and looking at sexy Mrs. Claus the wrong way. Santa does NOT like that.
Bekah: Four’s fear landscape is pretty intense. Tris is an idiot for fearing bedding him after all those real fears.
Also can we PLEASE discuss that for a second.. that that is one of her fears? B/c… her fear will be realized, right? And it will be okay? And Allegiant will give us some hot Four-Tris love making?
Nikki: Come on Veronica, you can do it guuuurl, give us some hot hot fear landscape love. Preferably with all those weird old Dauntless leaders watching in the control room. Cause, I mean why not?
Bekah: It’s just us old menopausal sluts (< — an actual thing a commenter called us the other day) who want this… THE KIDS DO TOO.
Nikki: Not just us bitchy, EARLY menopausal sluts. Do it for the ladies!!! Do it for the gays, do it for the Downton Abbey fans who still aren’t over Mr. Pamuk’s/Theo’s mid-coital (EW!) heart attack/death scene. Gone but not forgotten. RIP.
Bekah: Do it for the kids who think hooking up in an abandoned parking lot in the back of their mom’s minivan is romance. Show them REAL teenage romance. I mean.. no.. maybe not the REAL kind… not awkward first-time sex, please.. Like.. fantasy teenage romance…. Here.. do you need help? We can write it for you.. just let us know…
Nikki promises not to say coital in the scene.
Nikki: I do, I swear! It’s been stricken from my vocab forever. (Till the next time we talk about this).
Bekah: So.. they showed the kiss. I have to be honest.. I was a little disappointed. I feel like… they gave away too much. We know too much.
I should’ve been blown away. SO excited. Like show them STARTING the romance.. but not THAT.. because.. where do we go from there? That’s all we have (until #bedroommakeout in book #2. which is a thing we should probably start hashtagging soon #bedmakeout #realquickbedmakeoutsesh)
Nikki: I always feel show JUST ENOUGH. Make people go WHAT WAS THAT?! We don’t need or WANT to see everything, save it for the movie. What’s the point of paying 15 bucks if you just showed me all the goods in a free trailer? BUT with our luck this is only the beginning of like 23042394079234 trailers they will release. 2 or 3 at the most guys, come on!
Bekah: Then it ends like how we saw in the teaser at Comic Con, BUT without a very important part–
Bekah: Four’s face.
Nikki: HIS REACTION!!!!
Nikki: JINX. It took some of the impact out of the moment because it was hot slash scary. And this was like well oops, gotta little blood on here on my ear… better get a bandaid.
Bekah: TOTES. UGH. We get Shailene’s reaction but not his. and that’s when I remember hearing SCREAMS. ANd my heart kinda screamed. Member we were like #ACTING. He got his paycheck. Looked so scared/relieved/hot (sidenote)
Bekah: So overall.. you asked me earlier if I thought it was good because it LOOKED good or because I like Divergent. I think a few days after seeing it.. I’d have to answer: because I’m a Divergent fan. And even then, I think I am more disappointed by it then excited.
HOWEVER, this isn’t a trailer. This was for the fans. So maybe they gave us more than they would otherwise.. because they knew the audience. I don’t know. What do you think?
Nikki: I liked it though it lacked that kick in the gut the clip from Comic Con had where you could see the Tris/Four connection. Also, I still really want to jump down that Dauntless hole (TWSS) and land in a net with Four there waiting.
Bekah: Um HELLO…. YES they didn’t show that! Oh man… that’s when we see him for the first time, Right? HELLO Entrance
“Big scary hole! i’m going to die! NO really! I’m dying!
Oh hello beautiful man… hello…..”
Bekah: Also can I ask your forgiveness for forgetting??
Nikki: No, you may not. I wish it was farther down and a tramp stamp, just so we could make fun of it. MAYBE THERE’S MORE WE JUST HAVEN’T SEEN YET. FINGERS CROSSED.
Bekah: Yeha.. I mean…. looking at the trailer.. it looks pretty slick.. not too much to make fun of.. Which as a fan gives me both a Cullen Smile and a sad face
(The Cullen Smile being, of course, a regular ol’ smile. Just with a special name)
Nikki: I think you mean a Prior smile?!?!?! Or maybe and Eaton smile???? Though they don’t quite have the same ring or same weirdo fans…
Afternoon Update: Fandango released this pretty awesome featurette that KINDA gives you a first impression of Four after Tris falls, actually makes the movie look cooler than MTV did and maybe gives us a sneak peek of Four plucking a moustache hair from Tris around 1:41-1:42? What IS that?
What do you think? Did you like it? And if so, was it because you are a Divergent Fan? Or does it just look good?
