Throwing Knives and Adventure Shape the Divergent Movie Trilogy
The first of 3 movies in the Divergent trilogy takes the stage in early 2014. The future citizens of Chicago are divided into five factions, each must uphold a particular virtue of humanity. Think Hunger Games and The Maze Runner with much more action and throwing knives.
So this movie is already a front runner for something we know we’ll love more than any other action packed trilogy out there because what could be better than danger seeking AND throwing knives. Nothing, we know. It’s very exciting that the art of throwing knives is getting big screen attention because we think they’ve been underrated for years anyway!
Sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior must take a test and make a choice that determines if she will see her family again. Her choice takes her on an incredible adventure that Frodo would be proud of. What we really like is that Shailene Woodley who plays Beatrice "Tris" Prior spent 6 weeks straight learning to properly throw throwing knives for the movie, and she’s AWESOME at it.
Divergent comes out in early 2014 with plans for Insurgent already planned. We’ll see if Allegiant makes it but from our friends that have read the last book, we’re probably good with just seeing the action from the first two.
