A new pic of Four & Tris
Article Translation After The Cut
It is June 12, 2013 and HITKRANT is in Chicago. Not because we’re tornado’s, which are expected that evening (so much fun) but because we are visiting the set of Divergent. Indeed, the movie based on the book by Veronica Roth starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James.
While it gets harder to breath outside, we are dealing with a small group of journalists from the UK, France and Mexico on a bus to the center of Chicago. There, between the skyscrapers, on an abandoned piece of grass is a set where white and gray houses are built. They’re rather bland, but if we look better we see that the houses are of the Abnegation, the group that Tris and her family are a part of. Inside the houses we see nothing, but we are promised we get (something-translation fail)! Exciting!
Rows with outfits
So we are once again on the move and this time we drive further out of town. There on the edge of Chicago are movie studios, which also happens to be the place where the America’s TV series Chicago Fire is filming. We see nothing, we head immediately for the door of the studio where Divergent is filmed. It’s not all camera crews at work, but behind the scenes, much more happens . For example, there are rooms full of rows of costumes for the various groups (factions). We see the tough outfits of Tris and her new group (Dauntless) but also the gray clothing which they had to bear in Abnegation. For that you must wait for a first look.
It’s really scary when we walk onto the set and we’re suddenly in ‘The Pit’, the place where the Dauntless live. It seems as if we are in a deep ravine. The spokesperson of the film tells us that we are to see a small part. The rest has already been removed to make room for other sets. Anyway, it remains impressive and we can almost imagine how scary the edge of The Pit is for Shailene Woodley as Tris.
*(Unsure of this sentence)*. In a kind of square are actors Theo James (who Four plays) and Shailene who are waiting for the director to call ‘Action’. Because yes, that really does happen in a movie. Then we finally see a scene from Divergent with Shailene and Theo. They sit together in Four’s fear simulation, which makes it clear that he is terrified of small spaces. He and Tris sit together on set in the ever shrinking room. The goes on for a few minutes, then come the jokes: ‘To the Bat-Mobile,” but at a time when not filming. The scene goes on and on and on and the jokes on the set are still more fun. At a given moment Theo asks Shailene if she wants to go to dive into bed with him, and then they nod ‘yes’. Ehm … will we see a new love duo emerge again?
In the Chicago of the future everyone is divided into five groups. If you’re sixteen, you must choose a group you want to live in, like Tris Prior. *(Unsure of this sentence)*. During the inauguration, she must face her greatest fears and ensure that no one knows her secret. Tris is ‘abnormal’ and should be in no group.
