By now, we’re all familiar with Miles Teller, who will star alongside Shailene Woodley in Divergent. Miles Teller was cast as Peter, a.k.a Tris’ fellow Dauntless initiate and one of her biggest rivals. While most fans of the “Divergent” trilogy are probably well aware that Teller and Woodley play rivals in Divergent, some fans have also had the pleasure of seeing them fall in love on screen in “The Spectacular Now,” which was widely released in the U.S. late this Summer.
Miles Teller and Zac Efron in “That Awkward Moment”
Now, older fans of the dynamic Teller will get to see him in the upcoming film, “That Awkward Moment.” If you’re old enough (or will be old enough on Jan. 31, 2014) to get into an R-rated film, you’ll get to see Teller star alongside Zac Efron, the well-known actor who got his beginnings in children/young adult films on the Disney channel. It seems quite clear that both of these actors have done some growing up, and this film is described as a flick about “three best friends getting through an awkward time in their lives,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Check out the article for more information on the film, including a full-length trailer featuring our very own “Peter”!

EW has reported what can only be interpreted as fantastic news for the Divergent trilogy: In its’ first month, Allegiant has sold more pre-orders than The Hunger Games did! The LA Times first posted the story on October 9th, stating that the Allegiant pre-orders have outsold THG’s Mockingjay 5 to 1!
The fact that the book is outselling Mockingjay is wonderful news, considering that The Hunger Games trilogy sales jumped 55% after the first movie had been released. Allegiant pre-order sales are already skyrocketing, and the “Divergent” movie hasn’t even released an official trailer!

Ansel and Shailene with Veronica Roth
Our very own Tris and Caleb Prior are set to switch gears from surviving in a dystopian Chicago, to breaking all of our hearts in Pittsburgh, PA. It seems as if Shailene and Ansel will have little time between shooting “Divergent” in Chicago to beginning to shoot “The Fault in Our Stars” in Pittsburgh.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Shailene, Ansel and writer-director Josh Boone are set to begin filming “The Fault in Our Stars” on August 27, 2013. Their movie will be the first movie shot in Pittsburgh in 2o13! Do you live around the Pittsburgh area? If so, do you plan on auditioning to be an extra? Let us know!
Entertainment Television (ET) has released an official video from their visit to the “Divergent” set!
It’s great quality and features some scenes including:
- Tris (Shailene Woodley) wearing Abnegation clothes jumping from the train onto the Divergent rooftop for the first time with Christina (Zoe Kravitz), who is wearing Candor clothing
- Dauntless training on the rooftop with guns
- Shailene describing Tris’ inner struggle, “Her decisions are constantly being torn between whether to be brave, or whether to be selfless.”
- A giggling Zoe Kravitz saying, “Yeah I think we’re going to kill it [at the box office].”
Take a look at the video below!
Shailene Woodley/Beatrice “Tris” Prior
Some brand new, high-quality photos are now available for our viewing pleasure, thanks to a tip from Page to Premiere! There are a few shots of Shailene Woodley as Beatris (before her transformation to “Tris”), her brother and her mother and father. There is also a great shot of a few of the Dauntless initiates. From what we can see, the costumes are spot on! Dauntless youngsters are sporting bold mohawks and lots of facial piercings.
It looks as if our previous prediction that the shot of the Abnegation members walking to their sector with the white robes was correct, and all of the initiates at the ceremony will be wearing the ceremonial white robes. So, what do you think about the robes? The Prior family? Let us know what you think in the comments!
