Divergent

Posted: Updated:

It all started with "Twilight" then came "The Hunger Games," and now a new franchise with a new leading lady is about to take the big screen by storm.

When society is divided into five factions, you have to make sure to fit in. But what happens if you don't belong anywhere?

Shailene Woodley plays, Tris, a divergent who has to hide in a faction to survive.

Theo James - "Oh yeah! 100% She is the role, she is Tris in so many ways."

Tony Goldwyn - "She's great."

Ashley Judd - "She's remarkable."

Tony - "Yeah. She carries the whole movie, and from day one of meeting her you see that she's so self possessed and comfortable in her own skin and lovely and generous and humble, and she's an extraordinary human being.

Ansel Elgort - "I just think that Shailene is the best actress around right now and I think she is the real deal, and without her the movie wouldn't be as good she's everything."

Those are some serious compliments, and they're not undeserved.

Shailene Woodley - "I love to be challenged so the training thing was fun, everything that we got to do on this movie was fun, there's a lot of physical components involved."

Shai worked so hard, she got more than a few bruises from playing the role.

Christian Madsen - "I think Shai got scraped up a little bit, and that was just because she cared so much about the project."

Theo James - "Shai actually still has some injuries from her, she took a fall on the train but she just got right back up, people were like you need to go to the hospital and she was like no its all about the movie baby."

Nothing but humble like a true divergent.

Shailene - "You always get bruised and you feel like if you don't, you're not doing it right, you know?"

Sounds like the fan's are going to be happy with this one.

Shailene - "I think people who read the book will not be disappointed in the movie, Ii think its a pretty good adaptation of the book."

Ben Lloyd Hughes - "It's really good. A cliché about Divergent is that its jut for girls its like a chick flick but its an action adventure film which we both saw and thought guys will love that as well."

Theo - "It's a really good movie and its something not only honors the material but its really fast paced action adventure."

As for Shailene, she's just enjoying the ride.

Shailene - "Life is exciting, might as well just cruise."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    The last time I had on a pair of overalls, I was miles from civilization with a whip in my hand, an hysterical co-worker by my side and five angry cowboys staring me down.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.

    One tough chick in a group of boys trying to escape a maze-enclosed, post-apocalyptic world where not one of them has any memory of how they got there. So far, that's what we've figured out about the newest sci-fi flick about to hit the big screen. We sent Deco's Liz Nagy out to watch.
