Posted February 06, 2019 07:33:50 It’s been awhile since the last big Hollywood movie in the U.K. was released, but the genre is returning to the U, thanks to the first installment in the Divergent franchise, Divergent.
The Divergent series, which stars Matthew Broderick, Emma Roberts, John Cusack, and more, is due out in the United States on May 17.
We caught up with Divergent movie critic Mark Bomback to discuss the movie’s potential and how it fits in with the Divergents’ legacy.
What was your first impression of Divergent when you first heard about it?
I think I first saw it when I was six years old.
It was in theaters.
I was really fascinated by the story and the characters and what they were trying to accomplish.
I’ve seen the trailers and they were so fantastic.
What a cool twist.
What did you think of when you saw the first trailer?
I loved the trailer, too.
I loved all of the things about it.
I thought it was a great start for the Divergenes.
How can you have a great debut movie when you have to start with a new character?
There’s so many good things about this movie.
I love the character development.
I think it’s going to be a fun ride.
What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced with the film?
I’ve always been pretty excited about new stories.
So it was great to be able to tell a story with all the great characters and the great twists and turns and things.
We’re trying to do something really special.
I’m not really sure.
What are the other challenges you’ve had?
We’re all just excited to be back in the same story.
We were able to create a story where people really cared about who was on the inside.
The characters really mattered to them.
We wanted to get to know all the characters.
We had a really fun time.
We went into this movie with all of our hearts in the right place.
What are some of the biggest challenges you guys have had writing the film, and how are you handling them now?
The biggest challenge was that we had to write an entire movie about one character.
That was just so hard.
We knew the story was going to end, and that was the biggest thing.
So the challenge for me was getting to know the character.
I knew it was going do a great job.
I had to get into the character, find out who he is, what his backstory was, and what his goals were.
We all had to find our voice.
There was so much to figure out.
How is he going to handle being in the world, how does he deal with the pressures of his job, and where he fits into the world?
That’s the big challenge for the movie.
What were some of your favorite scenes in the movie?
I was a big fan of the first scene in the first movie, which was about finding out what his mom is doing.
That scene was really cool.
I saw the trailer and I loved it.
That’s when he finally gets to reveal who he really is, and I was like, Wow, I really enjoyed that scene.
That really gave me a sense of who he was.
It’s really fun to find out what’s going on with him and find out the story behind it.
What’s the best scene in Divergent?
That scene in particular is probably my favorite.
We got to meet and have a little fun.
He’s still so young.
I don’t think he’s quite ready.
But he’s fun to be around.
How does he handle his role as an officer of the law?
He’s a detective.
He does some really good work.
He knows how to handle his badge.
He can make a lot of money doing that.
It really gives him a lot.
How will he deal on his father’s side?
He has his own family.
It kind of gives him some leeway.
But, you know, he’s a big, big fan.
I would love to see him get married someday.
What do you think the biggest threat the movie poses to the genre?
I’m still not sure.
We don’t really know how this one is going to work.
I do think it will continue to grow in popularity.
I feel like we’re getting closer to that day.
It will just be interesting to see what happens.
What kind of movie do you guys think the genre will continue on for?
I have a hard time believing that it’s not going to continue.
I am not a big Divergent fan, but I do like the movies that are being made in this genre.
I hope they continue to be made and hopefully people will enjoy them.
What movie do YOU think the Diverge genre is best suited for?
I’m still undecided.
I really like Divergent as a movie.
It is a good one.
It did really well at the box office
