Alright, what is with this bs?
We have two totally different YA novels coming to film this year. One of my favorites and one that I had never heard of until this trailer assaulted my eyeballs through my Xbox.
On one hand, we have Divergent. A story about how choices and being different can be difficult but is ultimately what makes you awesome and normal, set in a not so distant dystopian future.
On the other, we have The Fault In Our Stars A story about how choices and being different can be difficult but is ultimately what makes you awesome and normal, set in a not so distant (some may agree) dystopian future.
Alright, maybe they’re not TOTALLY different. Which makes it even more confusing as to why Summit and 20th Century decide to release these two movies mere months apart featuring the same actors.
“Oh, that happens all the time, nowadays!” You say.
That’s all well and good for the actors and the authors and a whole bunch of other people. However, I’m sure you would change your mind if I told you that they go from playing Star crossed lovers who decide to live and love despite all odds to being… related
Not just related, but BROTHER and SISTER related.
Right, so I went from being suuuuuprr excited about seeing Divergent and ohhhhmygggggg I can finally shake off Tris’ The Secret Life stigma and just see them as my favorite characters coming to life.
Now, though… Now THIS has happened. I’m not really sure if I can sit through the beginning of Divergent without cringing; or crying. I’m hoping there’s lots of Four immediately after. It’s the only thing that can scrub my brain clean of this weirdly incestuous predicament that’s been thrust onto my unwilling lap.
Scratch that. I hope there’s so much Four happening that my brain melts into a puddle not unlike Alex Mack.
