Miles Teller

Divergent Trailer and Infographic

There seem to be so many adaptations of Young Adult novels lately that it’s become increasingly hard to keep track of them. Although studios are hoping for another Hunger Games some end up just being Ender’s Games.

Shaileen Woodley is also a name that has been popping up quite a bit lately, but I only remember her from her wonderful performance in The Descendants which we reviewed on an earlier Upodcast episode, which you can find here.

If like me you are quite lost on what Divergent is going to be about, the trailer gives a pretty good idea.

They did manage to put a pretty good cast together of young  actors like Theo James, Miles Teller but I am most excited to see Kate Winslet play what looks like a villanous role, I’m sure she’ll enjoy sinking her teeth into that.

Director Neil Burger is probably best known for Bradley Cooper’s Limitless but I liked his work on The Illusionist too (a movie that got overshadowed by The Prestige which released the same year).

DIVERGENT will see a UK release on April 4 2014.

Here is an Infographic explaining the 5 factions of Divergent as well as the New Quad Poster:

“In this most recent look at the highly anticipated dystopian action-adventure based on the series of novels by Veronica Roth, we learn more about the society within which Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) live and the dangers and choices they have to face… “

21 and Over New Clip

More mischief than you can shake a stick at

Picture the scene; it’s Tuesday, in the UK. The weather is warming up nicely (it is where I live, so tough if it’s cold and wet where you are) and you’re wondering what you should have watched over the bank holiday weekend, instead of the obviously-it-will-disappoint Oblivion.

You could do a shit load worse than heading out to watch this coming of drinking age. 21 and Over stars Miles Teller (Project X), Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga), and Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and comes courtesy of the writers of The Hangover (Scott Moore and Jon Lucas). In cinemas UK wide right now.  Check out this clip for an idea of what lies in store.

 

 

Shaming…it’s happened to us all, erm, right?

 

 

21 and over – new preview clip

Shenanigans aplenty

Upod are pleased to make show you a new clip from 21 and Over, the upcoming comedy from the writers of The Hangover; Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.

21 and Over stars Miles Teller (Project X), Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga), and Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), and is set for release in UK cinemas on May 3rd. This new clip sees Miller and Casey playing a traditional American party game called ‘Suck and Blow’. Enjoy 🙂
