So in case you didn't know, the new trailer for Divergent dropped yesterday and I want to hear your thoughts!
I'm going to be completely honest, I expected more. It just didn't give me then excitement and the adrenaline rush that trailers usually do. I also think it seems quite confusing for someone who has never read the book. I showed it to my sister, who hasn't read it, and she didn't have the slightest idea what was going on. I know I can't judge before seeing the film, but isn't the trailer supposed to draw in non-readers as well?
I do, however, love Shailene Woodley as Tris. I think she's going to rock this role. But, I'm still not finding Theo James very believable as Four. Again, I try not to judge before seeing the film, but at the moment, I'm doubtful.
I'm going to put my disappointment down to the editing of the trailer for the moment. Maybe when I get to see more from the film, it'll look more exciting. But for now, my expectations are quite low. After the string of YA film adaptations that haven't performed well at the box office lately, I'm still holding out hope that Divergent can break out of that trend.
