I recently reviewed the first Divergent book and read the next two in the series within days. I became an instant fan so when I found out there would be a Red Carpet event from the official Divergent Facebook page I immediately sent in an email to see if I could get a press pass. The event featured Miles Teller and Jai Courtney who play Peter and Eric in the movie. Fans had the chance to get their autograph and then see a pre-screening of the film!
I chose to wear my new Divergent shirt from Hot Topic along with some GlitzyGeekGirl buttons.
If you are a Twilight fan then you might recognize my jacket. It's by B.B, Dakota and is the same jacket Bella wore in the first Twilight movie! I thought it went great with my Divergent shirt.
When I arrived at the theater I picked up my press pass and free poster and found my spot on the floor! It was so cool seeing GlitzyGeekGirl in the press section. I was thankful I could get up close to the actors for some questions and a chance for them to say Hi to you guys! (As seen in the video posted at the top!)
Jai Courtney looked handsome in his suit and tie and was very generous to take pictures and sign for the fans.
Here I am with Jai! His character, Eric, is not one of the nicest in the book, but Jai was nothing but sweet! You may recognize him from Spartacus and A Good Day to Die Hard.
Miles Teller was also a pleasure to meet! He plays Peter in the movie, and if you have read the books then you know Peter has a very interesting storyline. Miles is also known for his roles in Footloose, That Awkward Moment, and he was recently announced as part of The Fantastic Four cast.
The theater was packed with fans and the guys took their time to make sure everyone had a chance to meet them. I actually forgot to ask them to sign my poster because I was so excited on the red carpet. Thankfully they came back around so I could get their autographs!
Besides meeting the actors, the coolest part of this event was seeing some of the costumes up close. They had a small exhibit showcasing the clothes that each Faction wears in the film. It would be awesome wear these as part of a cosplay group!
Dauntless and Erudite
I am not allowed to say much about the movie, but I will tell you that I LOVED IT! I will definitely be seeing it again when it hits theaters. Fans of the books will not be disappointed and those who haven't read it should also enjoy it. I am looking forward to purchasing the soundtrack for the film, too. Some great artists including Snow Patrol and Ellie Goulding contributed songs to it.
Tickets for Divergent are on sale now. The movie opens March 21st.
GIVEAWAY TIME!!! I am incredibly excited to share with you guys a chance to win a Divergent poster signed by Miles Teller and Jai Courtney! I asked them to sign two for me (I'm keeping one!! :P) But one lucky Divergent fan will be chosen by Rafflecopter to win the other!
