With Vine and Instagram clips suddenly becoming a new thing, it seems everyone loves super brief videos. Especially marketing teams. Why bother fussing over cuts of a proper trailer when you can just smash together a few seconds of footage and put it online? And so, here we are...

Divergent
Although Shailene Woodley has been cut from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" leaving the part to get recast, she's got nothing to worry about really. While that blockbuster franchise will have to do without the talents of "The Descendants" and "The Spectacular Now" star, she isn't sweating it because she has her own tentpole all to herself.

Shailene Woodley, Divergent
So Shailene Woodley, who will no longer appear in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and is reportedly being replaced in part 3 all together, got kicked in the teeth today, right? That and the fact that there were those vile comic book nerd posts a while back questioning her attractiveness (like those guys wouldn't dream to sit next to her, let alone date her). Meh, not so much. In fact, it's kind of been her day. She showed up in the trailer for "The Spectacular Now," this morning, one of Sundance 2013's biggest hits and now new images of "Divergent" have been released. What's "Divergent"? Well, a sci-fi-ish young adult movie adaptation that looks like it's going to be as popular as "The Hunger Games" if audience fan buzz is any indication.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
A few years ago, Hollywood was all about board games, but with the disaster that was Peter Berg’s “Battleship” and the one-two punch that was “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games,” studios have now pinned their hopes on the YA-market. This morning sees two new images, one from an already successful franchise and the other from one of the many hopefuls looking to hit big.

"Twilight" is done, "The Hunger Games" is already a phenomenon and Hollywood is eager to wring more dollars out of tween wallets, but those plans haven't quite worked out. "Beautiful Creatures" and "The Host" both fizzled and no one is really expecting "Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" to be a blockbuster. But can "Divergent" succeed where others have failed?

If we were betting men, and asked to put money on what could be the latest young adult novel series to follow "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" into becoming a cinematic phenomenon, we'd feel relatively safe putting our money on "Divergent." The book, the first in a trilogy by author Veronica Roth, is one of the bigger-selling books on that world in a while, and "Twilight" backers Summit snapped the film rights up a while ago.

While Jeremy Irvine, Lucas Till and Alex Pettyfer were testing for the coveted (?) male lead in "Divergent," and certainly have more name recognition than the eventual winner, it seems their talents didn't quite match what the filmmakers were looking for. Instead, rising Brit actor Theo James has gotten the gig, in what he likely hopes will be a push into the stateside scene.

From rumbling with Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher" to trading quips with Dad Willis in "A Good Day To Die Hard," Jai Courtney has been enjoying blockbuster gigs, but still hasn't penetrated the pop culture consciousness. Perhaps a part in potential tween franchise will do the trick.
