More Movellians on the red carpet!
So, little more than a week ago, Movellas sent me (TheFuzz) to the European premiere of Divergent.
Sorry, let me repeat that, it’s kind of still sinking in.
Movellas sent me to the European premiere of Divergent.
And it was absolutely phenomenal!
For those of you who didn’t know, Movellas had a competition a few of weeks ago to write a Divergent one shot or draw an alternative cover, with the prize being tickets to the premier. I only found out about this (via facebook) two and a half hours before the deadline, so I picked up my pencils sharpish and set to work brainstorming. The finished product was a pencil drawing of Tris discarding her Abnegation robes on edge of the rooftop she’s about to jump from, my favourite scene.
Anywho, Movellas liked it, so two days later I was on the train to London with my mum and a friend for what was honestly the best day this year so far!
There was so much to do when you got there, it wasn’t just watching the film. They had transformed Leicester Square into Veronica Roth’s post-apocalyptic world. You could take the test and find out your faction, then you could go and get a faction tattoo. The best part was that all the helpers were completely in character, Erudite for the tests, Dauntless for the tattoos, they got you really absorbed into the experience.
After that, there were several activities you could partake in, unfortunately we didn’t have time for all of them but we did go through a shooting range (I won!) and we also went on an awesome rotating climbing wall (I fell off…).
After that, it was time to queue up for the red carpet! They had some faction members there too to take photos with and just make everything that bit more fun. Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet any of the stars but before the film started they kindly came up onto the stage and said a few words, I was excruciatingly close to Veronica Roth!
The film, well, the film.
In all honesty, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but it was amazing! The acting was ace and the whole dystopian Chicago was amazingly done. I can’t really say too much, but believe me, it’s worth a trip down to the cinema!
Overall it was a fantastic experience, and one that I would do again in a heartbeat, so thank you very, very much, Movellas, for sending me!
