A month after the studio released a teaser, the first full trailer for Insurgent has arrived. Shailene Woodley returns to play heroine Tris, but this time sporting her The Fault In Our Stars short ‘do.

Since the first film, Erudite leader Kate Winslet feels the heat of the uprising and hunts down the fugitives, specifically Tris. The two face off in several tense moments in the Divergent sequel.

The new installment introduces Naomi Watts as James’ mother, with Octavia Spencer playing a peaceful faction leader. Bradley Cooper’s love Suki Waterhouse and Daniel Dae Kim of Lost fame also join the cast. Returning faces include Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz, Jai Courtney, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson, and Maggie Q.

Insurgent hits theaters on March 20, 2015. Check out the trailer below. If you feel the film has a different feel from its predecessor perhaps it’s due to Robert Schwentke taking over directing duties from Neil Burger.

Movie Synopsis

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.

Last year, the New York Times convinced the likes of Cate Blanchett, Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper and more to take part in their ‘Making A Scene‘ video series. The year before that, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Rebel Wilson, Naomi Watts and more channeled their inner heroines for the publication.

For their annual gathering of the best film performers, they decided to get a bit more intimate. This year’s theme of ‘Duets‘ displays all the ways kisses have been portrayed in films.

9 Kisses‘ directed by Elaine Constantine feature nine unexpected couplings to lock lips ranging from passionate to playful in a series of intimate encounters. Reese Witherspoon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Steve Carell, Laura Dern, John Lithgow, Julianne Moore, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Miles Teller, Kristen Stewart, Patricia Arquette and Jason Schwartzman all participate.

There are even a couple of same-sex makeouts from Rosario Dawson and Jenny Slate and another from David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall. Though the latter is anything but romantic. Check out some of the smooches below.

First Insurgent Teaser Trailer Surfaces

In: Donovan, Movies

The highly-anticipated sequel to Divergent hits theaters on March 20, 2015. In my opinion, it wasn’t the second coming of The Hunger Games, but an entertaining watch. Truthfully, The Maze Runner, another dystopian young adult book adaptation was far more riveting. With that being said, I’m still curious to see what the second chapter, Insurgent, has in store for our heroine Tris played by Shailene Woodley.

Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz, Ashley Judd and Woodley reprise their roles from the first film along with Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, and Mekhi Phifer. New to the franchise are Octavia Spencer, Naomi Watts, and Suki Waterhouse. The first teaser trailer titled “Defy Reality” has dropped. It shows Tris having one of her hallucinations with her mom Natalie making an appearance. Check out the clip below.

Based on all the makeout sessions featured in the new promo for White Bird In A Blizzard, one could easily mistake Shailene Woodley’s film as another teen romance. It’s a wise marketing move given how hot Shailene’s career is since propelling Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars to box office glory.

In actuality, her latest is a thriller where Woodley’s life is turned upside down when her mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. The film was co-produced, written and directed by Gregg Araki and first premiered at 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It’s slated to hit theaters this October.

Playing her love interest in the film is Shiloh Fernandez who’s seen swapping spit with Woodley in school, pool, on a car and everywhere else. Recently, the 22-year-old actress revealed to New York Magazine that filming the sex scenes with Fernandez was “so much fun.” I don’t blame her. He’s not half bad.

Rounding out the cast are Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Jacob Artist (Glee), Angela Bassett (Waiting To Exhale), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). Check out the teaser below.

Movie Review: The Fault In Our Stars

In: Matt, Movies
the-fault-in-our-stars-movie-review

SPOILER ALERT: There will be tears. If you’re looking for a good cry, or a powerfully beautiful teen romance without the typical Hollywood clichés then I highly recommend you see this movie.

The Fault in our Stars is directed by Josh Boone and is based on the novel by John Green. It tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) who is terminally ill with thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs. A smart, witty and resilient girl, Hazel is taking her life one step at a time, just trying to make it to the next day. Not looking to far into the future, Hazel is blindsided when she meets Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) who sweeps her off her feet in a way she describes as akin to falling asleep. “First slowly and then all at once.” Gus is also a cancer patient, having lost one of his legs to osteosarcoma. He is painfully sweet, handsome and irresistibly charming so much so that some may find his relentless optimism and unwavering positivity, coupled with his selflessness and utter devotion to Hazel a bit too far fetched and even slightly annoying. If the film has one fault (pun intended), it’s that Augustus’s character is a bit unrealistic as seen by the trip he takes Hazel and her mother on so that she may meet her favorite author.

This one looks like a major tearjerker. Definitely come prepared with plenty of tissues when you head to the theater.

Based on John Green’s bestselling novel of the same title, The Fault In Our Stars chronicles a tragic romance between two young adults who meet at a cancer support group. The book received widespread critical acclaim for the way it dealt with such very difficult and sensitive issues with sincerity and a sense of humor.

At first glance, it reminds me of that Nicholas Sparks movie where Mandy Moore dies. A Walk To Remember anyone? I probably should’ve said ‘spoiler alert’ before revealing Moore’s fate in that flick ;) Oops. With that being said, this one looks much better than that schmaltzy teen flick.

Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us — on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and Willem Dafoe round out the cast. The Josh Boone-directed film is scheduled to hit theaters June 6. Check out the trailer below. The scenes shot in Amsterdam are fantastic. If you’ve visited the city, like myself, you’ll definitely appreciate them.

New Divergent Movie Trailer Is The Most Intense Yet

In: Donovan, Movies
divergent-movie-trailer-poster

It’s definitely a big movie news day today. In addition to Malificent and Fifty Shades of Grey news, Divergent released a brand new trailer and it’s their most intense yet. I wonder if the studio is trying to steal a bit of Catching Fire’s thunder or simply riding the wave. With The Hunger Games sequel out in certain markets, Katniss fever is at an all-time high.

The new trailer gives us a deeper look into Shailene Woodley’s character Tris Prior as she prepares for her virtue test. There’s more peeks into the actual test and her training when she finds out she’s a Divergent. Also, we get our first look at Ashley Judd as her mom and even more scenes of the fabulous Kate Winslet. I admit, I’m mostly interested in the film due to Winslet. Just adore her. Check out the trailer below.
