I personally think the movie is going to do great. I mean, there was that screening and the lucky fans said it was wonderful, and even a guy that hadn’t read the books saw nothing wrong with it. Plus, the cast is fantastic. And from what I’ve seen some of the cast in so far, their acting is pretty much a++++++++++++++++++++++
The movie could still flop though so i’m going to try to not walk into the theater with my expectations too high. I’ve sort of been seeing a trend this year. Ever since THG, a lot of (not all though) YA book-to-movie adaptations have flopped. I feel like every once in awhile, a crazy successful adaptation is made (ex. THG, Harry Potter, etc.). I’m really, really, reallyyyy hoping Divergent is one of those! it’d be so cool to see so many people join the fandom and read the books and just love the series and the characters!!!
BUT, like I said before, a really wildly successful adaptation only happens every once in awhile and it’s kind of rare. So I’m guessing it might not skyrocket, but I really don’t think it’s going to flop. I’m hoping that it’ll do just fine!
I think, from what we’ve seen so far, it’s
a. BEAUTIFULLY SHOT
b. LOOKS INCREDIBLE
c. looks very true to the book
d. has a gorgeous cast oh man
I’m hoping it’s just as wonderful as it looks (and i’m sure it will be!!).
PS, I’M SO SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG TO ANSWER! :(
