Book-to-Film: Divergent by Veronica Roth

I just finished Allegiant.  (Review will be up on Monday!)  So the Divergent series is on the brain.

Sooooooo, Divergent is being made into a movie.  It's being released this March, actually.  I'm wondering:

  • How closely it will follow the book?  Usually I'm a purist, but I think this series could use a few, ahem, alterations.
  • If those who hated Allegiant are still interested in seeing the films?  
  • If I will want to see the films?  This series is very violent.  So is The Hunger Games, and I love those films, but I think The Hunger Games is actually very anti-violence in its message.  I think this series uses violence as entertainment, though, and I'm not sure I want to pay to see the final third of this film if it follows the book too closely.

What are your thoughts and concerns and hopes on this film?
