The hype aroubd Shailene Woodley and Theo James' film, "Insurgent" is good, thanks to the befitting success of "Divergent". The co-stars, who shared a wonderful chemistry in the first part , are expected to repeat the same in the second too.
The two actors recently took the stage in the recently concluded Comic Con in San Diego and spoke at lengths about "Insurgent" and how things have progressed in the film.
"Now that we've set up the world in the first one, you start with a movie that's full of heart and a lot of action," James told BuzzFeed. "It's so much bigger and has all these rich themes of trust and betrayal and a love story between two people that you haven't seen in films of this nature before!"
James and Woodley's kiss in "Insurgent" became the talk of town, so much so that it sparked off speculation if they were dating. James said that he did not shy away from kiss and made it look as passionate as possible.
"I just went at it hard, to be honest, because I thought that's how she wanted it. I thought to assuage any awkwardness I would just go for it. She was kind of batting away my hands," the actor told MTV. "It was kind of nice because we had Miles as Peter literally in the background as we were kissing. He was making hissing noises which actually added to the sexuality."
James and Woodley will be reprising their roles as Four and Tris respectively in the film. There is lot of buzz around the young adult series and it is being said that it would become as popular as "Hunger Games" and "Twilight"
The trailer of "Insurgent" will be released along with the "Mockingjay" in November. Ansel Elgort's character will slowly start turning dark as the sequel progresses.
"All the signs are pointing to ['Divergent'] growing into another big young adult franchise like 'Twilight' and 'The Hunger Games. With the first 'Insurgent' trailer slated to debut with the release of 'Mockingjay' in November, skyrocketing book sales, a stellar home entertainment launch and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgort generating ever-increasing online buzz, I think you can understand why we believe that the 'Divergent' series is becoming very special," Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said while speaking about the Q1 earnings as transcripted by Speaking Alpha.
