Interesting choice for the first official clip from the upcoming Divergent movie, since it is a quiet and emotional moment between Tris and four. But it is a great look at what to expect from the two actors who will portray the two main characters. Here it is:

Check out all the most recent news about teen books that are being made into movies:
Unwind, a compelling and issue heavy novel by Neal Shusterman, has been optioned by Constantin Films to be adapted into a movie, according to the “Hollywood Crush” blog on MTV.com. Unwind is a dystopian, sci-fi novel set in a future where teens can be unwound, or be taken apart and have their organs harvested, if they don’t fit into society’s norms.
Over a year ago, Universal announced that it was going to make Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone into a movie. Last month, the studio announced that they were going to push forward and now have a producer for the movie, according to Deadline.com. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a fantasy novel that centers on Karou, a seemingly normal teen except that she was raised by a family of Chimaera. With questions about how she came to be a human raised by demons, Karou gets swept up in a world where a dangerous war is being waged between angels and demons.
If you are a huge fan of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy, then you should be happy with the news that writer Daniel Water’s has finished the script for the movie! (according to Hollywood Crush) I am definitely looking forward to seeing who is cast in the movie, as I am a huge fan of the book series. The first book in the series, Vampire Academy, introduces us to Rose and Lissa. Lissa is a vampire of royal blood and Rose is the dhampir (part human, part vampire) who is bonded to protect her. Together they attend St. Vladimir’s Academy, where they have recently returned after running away, and where they will both be trained for life outside the school’s walls.

I’m in love with the movie Black Swan (2010). I strongly recommend this movie for those who love ballet, dancing, or ballet performances. I take ballet, and every time I watch this movie (which has been more than a few times) I become so motivated to dance. The choreography of this movie is amazing, as well as the story line. However, since this is a Rated R movie, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this movie to anyone under the age of 16, maybe 15 at the least. There are some sexual parts of this movie that in my opinion (and from watching it with immature friends), is only for mature audiences. I also did have to watch it 2 or 3 times to realize the hidden parts to the story-line and once I concentrated and watched the whole movie, everything tied in together and it made sense (which only made me love the film even more!). Natalie Portman is both an amazing actress and dancer, and if I had to rate this movie, I would give it a 5 out of 5 star rating.
