A new Divergent trailer has been released and is packed with new footage in the 2 1/2 minute preview!

The Divergent trailer was introduced by director Neil Burger during a live chat earlier this morning.

In the preview we see numerous big scenes like Tris realizing that the Aptitude Test is not real (making her Divergent), Four throwing the knives at his potential love interest, some big train swinging, Jeanine Matthews warning Tris about the dangers of the Divergent, and much more.


What stood out to you in the ‘Divergent’ trailer?

Also, here’s an important screen cap:


The visuals look beautiful and have the feel of a “big” movie. We’re pleased by how good the film is looking so far.

The new Divergent trailer will be in theaters with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire next week. Both stories are popular dystopians, so Summit is naturally hoping to gain the attention of the Hunger Games audience.

To celebrate the release of the trailer, yesterday the studio released the film’s one-sheet which depicts Tris and Four standing high atop Chicago. It’s a gorgeous poster which we think will stand out on billboards and across movie theater lobbies.

In related news, this week Divergent’s official website was re-launched with new character profiles. With each of these new descriptions comes new profile shots of the characters. Visit the website and click “Characters” to see the bios and photos.

What do you think of the ‘Divergent’ trailer?

Also, do you think this film is shaping up to have a wide appeal? The marketing material is pushing the “What makes you different makes you dangerous” tagline. The message is a simple and ominous one that we can absolutely see Hunger Games fans being intrigued by.

Moreover, sales of the Divergent trilogy have been performing very well over the past few months thanks to increasing awareness of the movie and good word of mouth. Lionsgate says that the Veronica Roth series is tracking as well as The Hunger Games was at this stage of its book-to-film development.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
