With the release of Divergent just around the corner, we take a closer look at the book and try and think about the scenes that are going to be the best scenes adapted to the big screen. Divergent is considered as the next Hunger Games, but it’s not until the movie comes out where we will see where it ranks among book adaptations.
Of late, the Young Adult fiction book adaptations have been flopping at the box office (see The Mortal Instruments and Vampire Academy) but the success of a few have production companies working to adapt them. What could be the difference between the flops and the success could be the story line. Right now, dystopian stories are the trend, so a book adaptation such as Divergent should find success. Especially considering how well the books have been received.
There is a hiccup though, and that is Allegiant. The final book in the trilogy has been getting bad reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. The book currently holds a 3-star rating on Amazon and a 3.63 star on Goodreads. Fans of the book didn’t like how it ended (I won’t spoil it for those of you who have not read it), and a lot of fans are swearing off the series. The final book of the series takes nothing away from Divergent and I think won’t stop fans from going to see the best book in the trilogy be adapted to the big screen. It’s Insurgent and Allegiant they will have to worry about.
The scene that has already been released was Tobias/Four explaining his tattoos to Tris, so that one has not been added, but it's one that you want to look for in the context of the movie.
Here is the list of the other top five scenes to look for in the new movie.
