We definitely get a lot of French Initiates here on AllegiantNY, and we are so happy to share these posters, check them out below.
AHHHHHH! New Trailer! A new Allegiant trailer is finally out! It has been exactly two months since we last got our last trailer, and it was definitely about time that we revived the fandom once again from its hibernation state. After the trailer release happened, Divergent on Twitter made a live Q&A when the fandom asked questions with the hashtag #AskAllegiant. Read the questions and watch their answers down below as well. Watch the new trailer down below and don’t forget to read my reaction towards the trailer after. The HQ Screencaps are also down below for download.
Okay soooo… The trailer… I personally thought there was a lot going on in a two minute trailer. They showed to much of the same thing, and they keep adding these weird unknown areas and stuff that was one-hundred percent NOT in the book. The weird bubbles… what in the world are those? **cough cough** condoms? It’s like the last trailer, when we saw the scene with flying donuts. Yes, there are parts like when Tobias said “Tris, this is not the place that we thought it was” speaking about what they have discovered beyond the wall.
Obviously there were some parts that were not in the book but we can accept, like the showers scenes with nude Tobias… 😉
oh and Tris of course…
The whole aspect of separating the film with two perspectives, from Tobias and Tris, is definitely a must! I’m beyond happy that this was included, but at the same time I’m kind of afraid of how Robert will proceed with the film in these two perspectives. I hope they don’t mess it up…
Another positive comment is the background song used during the trailer. The song is called “Grow Till Tall” by Jonsi.
At the end of the day, I guess I’m happy that something new was released. It wasn’t bad, but there was more I was hoping to see. What did you Initiates think of it? HQ Screencaps
Hello there Initiates! It’s been quiet a couple of days since I last posted… I’m currently on Christmas Break with a fever (perfect timing), but this doesn’t mean I shall not update. To bring you up to news, new scenes from Theo James’ film “The Benefactor” also known as Franny back a couple of months ago before it was changed, have been released thanks to the trail of Lucky Red, a movie production company located in Italy. Since I could not find the translate scenes for everyone, you can read the caption below each video telling you what the scene is saying since one) I have seen the full movie already during its premiere at the Tribecca Film Festival back in April and two) I know Italian so the translation is easy. Enjoy the scenes below, and don’t forget to download The Benefactor on iTunes now by clicking here.
In this first scene, we have Theo’s character- Luke having a conversation with his wife and soon to be mother of his child Olivia, played by Dakota Fanning, talking to her uncle Franny, played by Richard Gere. Olivia tells Luke that her uncle Franny can give him a job nearby their new home they will be living. Luke is astonished to find out that Franny was able to find him a job. Olivia tells Luke at the end of the video that there are things that Franny isn’t possible of doing.
In the following scene, Luke and Olivia talk a little about their move to Philadelphia. The scene is cut to a scene with Franny and him getting ready for Olivia’s visit, as Franny has had years of not seeing her niece making him exceptionally excited about the visit.
In this scene, Luke and Olivia have arrived to their destination and have already met up with Franny. Franny has made an exceptional welcome to his favorite and only niece and her husband, and he entitles a special song to the newly wed couple. Franny states that when Olivia’s parents got married, he sang a song for them at their wedding ceremony. Franny states that he will continue the tradition and sing it to them. The scene is continued but later cut to a snippet of the life that Franny has every time he goes home. It shows the loneliness he has with his arms opened, and all the money in the world as well.
In this final scene, Luke has a curiosity as to why and how Fanny is so wealthy. Luke asks his wife, Olivia as to why he is wealthy, how, and what he does for a living now. Olivia simply responds back by saying that she doesn’t know. He has always been wealthy and that as a little girl, the wealth of a person didnt matter in her life. Luke asks her what he does for living. Making a focus of how he is lonely. He has no wife, no family, no kids, and no job. The question in hand appears once again, why and how he is so wealthy. We also see that Franny is highly addicted to a special liquid drug in which he takes reguarly. This is the main message of the movie.
