The marketing people are clearly hoping for Divergent to stand shoulder to shoulder with The Hunger Games. They don't leak any more similar to me than Star Wars and Star Trek. Hopefully one thing they'll have a few things in common, including strong filmmaking, powerful casting and a sense of excitement and relevance. Video: Divergent: […]
I continue to be confused by the marketing of this YA franchise hopeful.
YA franchise hopeful Divergent will lose its director Neil Burger after the first film, reports Variety No official reason is given, but the report seems to indicate this is a matter of timing, as the first sequel, Insurgent, has been set for a March 20, 2015 release date and filming will begin in spring 2014[...]
It actually looks like fun, though, and Neil Burger's a fine director.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sutgWjz10sM[/youtube]Okay, this one's going to be lucky to meet the quality of the Hunger Games series, but I'm rooting for it Shailene Woodley has certainly turned in a couple of great performances already, and Kate Winslet is, just by herself, a reason I'd go[...]
Divergent is rolling out tattoo-embossed character posters all week, and today we've got Maggie Q as Tori.

Dunno.The absence of Uncharted director Neil Burger probably suggests the film has nothing to do with this promo Well - unless Burger is leaving to be replaced by Ed Zwick Yeah, that must be it And I'm sure it's not the tin foil hat giving me all of these ideas.Enough of my paranoid conspiracy theory[...]
On Limitless I read the script and loved it and tried to get a meeting with Neil Burger [the director] Leslie Dixon wrote it in 2007 or 8 Heath Ledger was going to do it at one point, then Shia LaBeouf.I love Phil from The Hangover but [with Limitless] it was nice to be cast in[...]
And very, very boring.No - our job is to criticise the films after we've seen them, and only on their own terms too.Neil Burger is the new man up to the plate I remember telling a friend about Burger's first film, Interview with the Assassin and she spent the whole conversation thinking I was saying[...]
The third pair I'll give away via Twitter, so follow us there to bosst your chances.Limitless is directed by Neil Burger, best known for The Illusionist We like him We think we'll like Limitless too, though this pseudo-science about people not using all of their brains does befuddle us somewhat.Here's the trailer.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6zvT82HK-k[/youtube][...]
Someone says "Reshoots!" and a hundred people scream back "Nooooo!" Even though, of course, any filmmaker with the luxury of going back to perfect a scene, top up on coverage and tweak things a little would be nuts to not take it.Neil Burger's Limitless is due on screens in mid-March, so its current reshoots are[...]
Neil Burger's good too, I've liked his films.I'm hoping this isn't another film about a genius in which the screenwriters weren't smart enough to avoid making the brainiac act like a dumbass, however Happens all too often.I'd also be disappointed if Limitless simply ends up rehashing Special Hey - Special! I like Special[...]
