UPDATE: Scroll down to see all EIGHT 3D interactive Posters!
Lionsgate today announced that it will release The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second installment of its Divergent franchise, in both 3D and 2D.
“The second film in the Divergent franchise takes the story and action to another level and, by partnering with RealD, we were able to blend gripping performances and mind-blowing spectacle to create a unique event on screen,” said producers Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher. “We cannot wait to share this experience with audiences around the world.”
There will be eight interactive 3D posters released today every hour, starting with the first one here featuring Ansel Elgort as Caleb Prior:
Shailene is real and down to earth so its in true form that she would speak out about representing teenage sex and other adult issues that affect teenagers in the films she works on. In White Bird in a Blizzard she plays teenager who has to come to terms with troubled mother going missing.
Q: There’s been a lot of attention on your sex scenes and nudity in White Bird. Do you think that distracts attention from the rest of the film?
A: It’s not a surprise because it’s America. Sex is so suppressed in America publicly; people don’t talk about it or mention it, and so it wasn’t a surprise that that’s what everyone’s focused on.
Q: How do you think sexuality is conveyed in today’s world?
A: I think we have a long way to go in America as far as representing sexuality. I think of it as a spectrum, because it’s either overly in-your-face and exploited, which is so skewed and unrealistic. Unfortunately that’s what a lot of young people base their own sex lives on, that of which they see in movies, which is so funny. Or it’s super under the covers, pretending it doesn’t exist, and if you talk about sex, you’re dirty. And that’s not real either.
Q: How do you avoid Tris and Four’s relationship from overshadowing the rest of the themes in Divergent sequel Insurgent?
A: Theo [James, who plays Four] and I are so lucky to have each other, because Theo’s a man, he’s not a boy, and I think that immediately eradicates the cheese factor, because anything he does is not going to be a cheesy, hot young boy taking his shirt of in a film. He brings a certain masculinity that I think a lot of young actors couldn’t bring, so that in itself adds a lot. Then we’re both, Theo and I, very keen in the relationship staying grounded and staying truthful.

Check out this video from SNL where they spoof all the dystopian movies and create a new movie “The Group Hopper”. In true SNL fashion its hilarious!!
Earlier this month Jai Courtney spoke with ComingSoon.net about his upcoming role in Terminator: Genesis and a little bit about reprising the role of Eric in Insurgent.
ComingSoon.net: For Insurgent, does the arc of Eric coincide with the arc in the books?
Courtney: As in, “Do I die?” Yes. Yeah there’s no spoilers there ’cause it was already written in a different medium, so I’m happy to say that. It’s cool, we just wrapped on that the other week. That was actually a lot of fun, it was a lot of fun to go back and play a role a second time. It’s the first time I’ve done that. Yeah, it was cool, kind of like the way actors feel when they do TV and come back for another season. You’re comfortable, you’ve explored some ground with that, you’ve really got the character figured out and I guess things get written with that in mind now. You can see what worked and you know you’re cast. There’s just more room to have fun with it, and I think this film takes us out of that particular faction that we started with in the first one. It’s kind of on the road, like a big long chase sequence, the second book. It was fun to go back and play Eric again. I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed being that cold and nasty. It’s good because he’s so dead. I wrestled with that originally, but that was a testament to Neil’s vision. You can throw different shades in there, but I was glad he pushed me to create the character the way he did ’cause it worked the second time around. It’s that subtle material, it’s quite fun to do stuff like that rather than make it so obvious.

Thanks to some friends of ours, we have some exclusive pictures of the Insurgent Filming that happened yesterday! These were taken from Hancock Observatory.
Today some overhead shots of Chicago were filmed for Insurgent under it’s code name Mineral! Helicopters were spotted today flying low over the Chicago river with bridges raised. So exciting to have some Insurgent news even if it’s just some b roll footage! Shooting is scheduled to continue tomorrow according to LoopChicago! Let us know if you are local and spot any filming!
We know that Ansel Elgort has a great sense of humor, but guys, this latest prank takes it to another level! Earlier today, Jimmy Kimmel posted this hilarious video of Ansel helping to play a prank on hiss niece, Allison. Allison loves make-up…she loves Ansel too. So, being the awesome uncle that he is, Jimmy invites Allison to come to the studio for a lesson from a Hollywood make-up artist. But little does she know, it’s actually Ansel in costume. Check out the hilarity below!
Ansel’s accent is INSANE! And praying to the make-up gods?!
The moment when Ansel reveals himself is also so sweet. Jimmy really is uncle of the year!
What did was your favorite part about the video?
