I have heard many people say they have NO CLUE what Divergent is about but these same people are ready to go watch it in the cinema because of the film's similarity to the famous Hunger Games.

Now, I'm all in support of lead female roles that act within an interesting storyline. However, what happens when all these films become the same.

Divergent isn't hasn't premiered yet but already readers that have read the Divergent series has compared it to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Thus, hooking the attention of other (larger) Twilight and Hunger Games fans.

Will future films continue this trend of being similar or will something new burst through the screens?

What are your thoughts?

It's coming in just as hunger games is in the final phase. And it topped the US box office with $56 mil. Nobody has seen it yet that I know of. I'm interested. Should be a good night. whos that actress?>>

I saw that. Not such a bad film yea? Kind of about career choices, peer pressure, fitting in in society fit into a parable like many stories do. Of course lots of stealing from other movies too but you can expect that cos everything's been done already. Shailene is amazing but she does seem a lot like Jennifer Lawrence lol
