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?
