As we all know, the movie adaptation of Divergent by Veronica Roth will hit theaters this week! After having read Divergent two years ago, we really can’t wait to see the wonderful story come to life and to ogle Theo James too. ;)
In an effort to promote the movie, this past Saturday, Golden Village (the local cinema in charge of Divergent) and our official local Divergent fan site organized a Faction Pride Day and the first ever Divergent Parade! We obviously could not missed it and along with other fans, marched down Orchard Road (the main shopping district here in Singapore) chanting Divergent related stuff like, “What makes you different, makes you dangerous.” and “Watch Divergent! Opens 20 March!”
It was the first ever fandom event (excluding the local premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) we’ve attended and was such an incredible experience. There were free spray-on tattoos and also hourly lucky draws. Without further ado, here are some of the pictures taken that day!
We went with a group of other friends who were also fellow Divergent fans and if you’re about to point out that the film release date on the banners & stuff are wrong, let me just clarify that Divergent opens March 20 here in Singapore. We’ve also scored 2 pairs of tickets to the local premiere on March 19, this Wednesday, so do expect another post on that event too!
