Review: DIVERGENT Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack Releases Today!

0003139819881_500X500

As a Hunger Games site, we have been introduced to many wonderful YA books and movies over the years. One of our favorites is Divergent, which releases on DVD/Blu-Ray today August 5th. We were able to review the DVD in advance, courtesy of Lionsgate/Summit.

What to look forward too:

I admit, I did watch The Spectacular Now and Fault in Our Stars trailers because well, why not. There is also a trailer for the Divergent IPAD app. This app includes over 150 minutes of state-of-the-art bonus features and interactive content. The content includes the Making of Divergent, All-Access Movie Premiere Pass, Factions in the Real World, and a Marketing Archives. If you are an Xfinity customer who buys the movie on Digital HD via Xfinity On Demand, the Divergent app will unlock an additional 250 minutes of exclusive content. For more info and to download the app, click here. The Blu-Ray combo pack also includes a sheet of stick-on Divergent tattoos and Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart music video.

Audio Commentary with Director Neil Burger/Audio Commentary with Producers Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher: Both audio commentaries are jam packed with lots of new info on filmography, imagery, why certain things were put in the movie, left out, or changed up, and more.

“Bringing Divergent to Life” Documentary: Their is so much in this, I can’t even begin to describe it. It is soooo good and it has so many great behind-the-scenes footage and cutesy moments between the cast, crew, and Veronica Roth. You’ll just have to watch and enjoy ;-)

“Faction Before Blood Featurette (Blu-ray Exclusive): This featurette explains what the five Factions are, how Veronica Roth came up with Divergent, the choosing ceremony, why the factionless exist, and more. The cast and crew also go into more detail on each Faction. At the end of the featurette, the cast tells which Faction they would choose in real life. Some of their answers might surprise you.

Deleted Scenes: The deleted scenes include an extended practice shooting scene, a convo between Tris and Al, the very gruesome “knife in the eye” scene, “why is there new rules” convo with Tris, Four, and Eric, and lastly, we couldn’t go without a Dautless cake scene.

Marketing Gallery: The marketing gallery includes both Divergent theatrical trailers and a poster gallery.

So go on out today and purchase your very own Divergent DVD! You can find the DVD at major retailers including Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.

Toby Jones Talks his Involvement with The Hunger Games and Working with Jennifer Lawrence

PANews+BT_P-f05a0a5a-2de0-4b63-9bfd-deb107bed554_I1

In a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, Toby Jones, who plays Claudius Templesmith, shed some light on his involvement with The Hunger Games series.  He explained just how limited his part is, as well as doing the movies for his kids.

“I get asked every so often to go to Atlanta to film with Stanley Tucci, which is always a great pleasure because we improvise what we have to do.  But I’m there for literally a day.

I don’t feel a huge massive connection with the project.  That’s it.  My kids are both huge fans of it so it’s their thrill that I’m involved with it.”

Toby also worked with Jennifer Lawrence in Serena, which comes out next year.  He commented on her willingness to remain grounded, saying “she’s such a smart, clever actress.  You’d think there would be a danger of it swamping her but it never does.”

Lorde talks Mockingjay soundtrack, how she got the job and what attracted her to it in the first place.

Lorde performs at Lollapalooza 2014

Lorde preformed at Lollapalooza 2014 while there she talked to Billboard about curating and writing a song for the Mockingjay pt. 1 soundtrack and how she landed the job.

Billboard: Spearheading an entire soundtrack, especially for a film as hotly anticipated as Mockingjay, is a pretty tall order, especially for someone still early in their career.

Lorde: Yeah, I was just saying that I literally watched the second film (2013’s Catching Fire) in a movie theater in New Zealand like a year ago. And now I get to curate the soundtrack. It’s crazy.

How did it all come together?

It came to me through my publisher, who is always bringing me really cool, weird opportunities. He was like, do you want to do the end credits song for the film? And I said, “Oh yeah that would be awesome. Um … what are they doing for their soundtrack, just out of interest?” And he was like, “I don’t know I can find it out.” I was really keen to curate it. I had this idea that it would be really cool and I think I know what is the right sound for the project. So they were really into it and it just started happening. It’s really been my baby, which is awesome. It’s so rewarding, but it blows my mind that this massive studio has just handed the reigns over to a 17-year-old. I’ve literally been doing it by myself, contacting every artist, sorting everything out.

Can you tell us some other artists that are involved?

I don’t know if I want to tell you anything yet! It’s very new. But there are some people on there that you’re going to be super surprised by. You’ll be like, what? I haven’t heard form them in ages… but in a great way.

OK, we’ll stay in suspense. Was there anything specific about the Hunger Games series that attracted you to the project?

Yeah, I think there’s something about the Hunger Games that makes it a very modern-feeling blockbuster franchise. Often you get a heroine in a movie like that and they’re just not cool characters. They’re kind of sappy or kind of boring. But Jennifer (Lawrence) perfectly embodies Katniss Everdeen and you can’t not be interested in that character. She’s so smart and so tough and so brave, but she’s also like, I’m really confused and I don’t know which guy I want to date but like … hold on dude. There’s more important things to do than think about dating. I’ve got to save the world right now. It’s very fresh and modern which I like, but it’s also super youth based. It’s a good set of films.

Lorde To Provide First ‘Mockingjay Part 1′ Single & Curate The Soundtrack

10524354_967603729922945_6888089590041398967_n

Whoa, super exciting news! Lionsgate announced this morning that Lorde will provide the first single to the Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack AND she will also be picking the rest of the artists on the soundtrack. Check out the press release below!

SANTA MONICA, CA, July 31, 2014 – Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a premier next generation global content leader, announced today that multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning recording star Lorde will curate the soundtrack album for the upcoming third installment of the global blockbusterThe Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album. The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall.

The 17-year-old New Zealand native –who will embark on her third national North American tour this fall– exploded onto the scene with her Number One global hit ‘Royals,’ and has taken the music world by storm since the release of her critically acclaimed platinum debut album “PURE HEROINE” [LAVA/Republic Records].

Her quadruple platinum selling single ‘Royals’ helped earn two Billboard Music Awards for ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Rock Song,’ and two GRAMMY® Awards for ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Solo Performance.’ She currently holds the record for ‘Longest #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Female Artist in 2013′ and longest standing #1 for any female artist in the Billboard Alternative Chart history

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, is the latest installment in Lionsgate’s global box office phenomenon based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling “Hunger Games” trilogy and will be released in theaters worldwide on November 21, 2014.

“I sat down with Lorde on the set of ‘Mockingjay’ this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film. Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack. I can’t wait to share what she’s done with the fans — it is truly remarkable,” said Francis Lawrence.

Lorde’s unique position as both a songwriter/performer and the curator of the Mockingjay – Part 1soundtrack album came about via her unique relationship with her music publisher, SONGS Music Publishing who was a key architect of the deal.

“Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde. “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

Check Out What the Rebels Wrote on TheCapitol.PN #OnePanem #OrNot

Some time last week, TheCapitol.PN updated with a One Panem section, which included three moving images (still photos seen below). The One Panem section seems to be in response to the Capitol Concerns section. But now, it looks like the rebels have busted into the site with a new message, but it is hidden. The original message “THE CAPITOL IS LISTENING” is in it’s normal place under Capitol Concerns. But double click the words and see what happens!
