The Divergent Teaser Puts Shailene Woodley In Action

When they say teaser, they really mean teaser. To me, this looks like one of those pre-teaser teasers. I normally hate those but in this case, you actually get a lot out of 13-seconds including a Maggie Q cameo, a brief look at Kate Winslet, and Shailene Woodley showing off some serious moves. And well, probably a bunch of other stuff fans of the Veronica Roth novel will appreciate but I haven’t read the book so I can’t be sure. Divergent fans, what say you?

The Divergent Movie Might Getting All Classy and British With Kate Winslet

For the unaware, Veronica Roth‘s Divergent trilogy is an über-popular teen series about a dystopian world in which society is separated into factions based on dominant characteristics (the main character, Tris, belongs to the Dauntless faction, whose members are characterized by bravery). As with all über-popular teen series (serieses? serieseses?) these days, there’s a movie adaptation in the works. We already know who’s playing Tris (that would be Shailene Woodley), but Variety has news about a possible new addition to the cast: Kate Winslet.

Kate Winslet to Go to Space After Saving Woman From Fire; Is Captain Marvel, I Guess?

For anyone who isn’t up on their superheroes at the moment, Captain Marvel is the current alias of Carol Danvers (yes, a Marvel superhero, not like that guy who shouts Shazam, and now also goes by the name Shazam), an Air Force pilot turned superhero with a love for high altitudes, space, and saving the day.

We didn’t immediately make the connection between Ms. Danvers and Kate Winslet when we heard that the latter was getting a free trip to space courtesy of uncle-in-law Sir Richard Branson, but then we dug into the details of the story and the details took a surprisingly heroic tint. The gift of the £124,000 ($200,000) ticket is partly a wedding present (Winslet married Branson’s nephew earlier this month), and partly a gift of thanks for… saving his ninety-year-old mother from a fire. Really.

Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, Starring Johnny Depp, Is Looking More Awesome By the Minute

We’re getting a surprising amount of information about the plot of the upcoming Johnny Depp-starring sci-fi flick Transcendence, considering it’s executive produced by the notoriously secretive Christopher Nolan and directed by Wally Pfister, a frequent collaborator of his. I remember that people were scratching their heads at what the heck Inception would be about even after the trailer was released. But courtesy of The Wrap, we now have a basic plot for the film… and it looks awesome.

Beware: If you consider basic plot information for a film that may undergo substantial revisions by the time it makes its way to your eyeballs spoilers, don’t click the jump, as they are unmarked. You’ve been warned.

James Cameron Sinks Our Ship (Or, At Least, Our AU)

Yeah, we all think about this stuff too much

James Cameron doesn’t care what you think. It’s one of the many privileges of having made billions of dollars. But even mega movie tyrants can get sick of myths that float around the internet. Especially if they have to do with Titanic.

In response to the long-standing theory explored by a Reddit user that Jack could have easily fit onto that door with Rose (don’t pretend like you don’t know what we’re talking about), Cameron has gone on the record stating that it’s not a question of space, but a question of buoyancy.
