Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Yay! The final Divergent trailer is here and we only have 43 more days till the film releases. I am sure most of you have watched the trailer a few times (for me it's been about 4 billion times) and are familiar with the scenes that are new and ones we've already seen. In this breakdown I will be addressing the scenes that are brand new so let's get started.
This is the first REAL look at the dystopian city of Chicago. I love how the opening scene shows how decayed and destroyed the buildings really got and makes me wonder how bad this war was.
Next, I wanted to focus on how all the simulations where kind of blended together to kind of throw people off from what simulation is which. Here I will go ahead and assume this is the initiates final simulation where they also get the mind control simulation given. Another big difference, if I am correct at the assumption that this is the final simulation Tori is seen giving the injection when it was originally Eric. All the photos below are what I think go together to form the final simulation scene.
There is also the case of Tris' aptitude test before ultimately deciding on Dauntless. Complete with dog. I did not see the cheese, knife, or child but that's not to say they won't actually be in the film. What do you think of the way we are seeing her first simulation played out? She doesn't appear to be in the cafeteria but more a mirrored room. I think it actually looks a lot better this way than if it were to have taken place in a cafeteria. The kids are also not shown to be at school for their simulations so this is probably the other reason for the change.
We also get to see Ashley Judd as Natalie Prior giving Tris advice on why she went from Dauntless to Abnegation. And letting her know she "Can't trust anyone."
From the book: “They were inconclusive,” I say softly.
“I thought as much.” She sighs. “Many children who are raised Abnegation receive
that kind of result. We don’t know why. But you have to be very careful during the next
stage of initiation, Beatrice. Stay in the middle of the pack, no matter what you do.
Don’t draw attention to yourself. Do you understand?”
I think my favorite new scene is this one. Running with the Dauntless. How cool would it be to actually get to run with the Dauntless? Here is how Tris explains her first time running with the Dauntless: "The Dauntless sprawl across the street, blocking the path of a bus, and I sprint to
catch up to the back of the crowd. My confusion dissipates as I run. I have not run
anywhere in a long time. Abnegation discourages anything done strictly for my own
enjoyment, and that is what this is: my lungs burning, my muscles aching, the fierce
pleasure of a flat-out sprint. I follow the Dauntless down the street and around the
corner and hear a familiar sound: the train horn."
These last 2 screen shots I am going to give to you initiates. What scene do you think these are? Four's fear landscape? Or something else? Make sure to leave your comments bout the final trailer below!
