Vampire Academy, Divergent, and More: Movie News!

Let the rebellion begin, tributes! Natalie Dormer has been cast as Cressida in Mockingjay Part 1 & 2, the final book in The Hunger Games Trilogy. Cressida is a former Capitol citizen who joins the rebellion and is by Katniss's side, filming her for Plutarch. Cressida has a shaved head, so I'm curious to see if the actress with chop it all off. She also stars in 'Game of Thrones' as the character Margaery Tyrell.

A Vampire Academy trailer was released not too long ago as well. There are six books in the series; the author is Richelle Mead. As having read the books, I'm still not sure what to think of their protrayal, but I guess I'll have to read them again (and naturally, write a review). You can watch the trailer here:

A thirteen second teaser was released for Divergent by Veronica Roth on August 22nd, and on August 25th, there is supposed to be 'something big' coming for the fans. I'm assuming it is the full trailer. Once the trailer or whatever-it-is is released, I will edit this post and add it on.

And now the full trailer:

Speaking of Shailene Woodley, John Green, the author of The Fault in Our Stars, recently had an interview with People magazine and disclosed information about what he thought about the auditions for the roles of Augustus (Ansel Elgort) and Hazel (Shailene Woodley). He gave advice for beginner writers, books that influence him to write, and which scene from TFiOS will be his favorite to see on-screen. Here is the entire transcript of his live chat. John Green is heading out to Pittsburgh for the first day of filming, which is August 26th. Green is also going to have a cameo in the movie. Shaliene Woodley has chopped her hair off for the role of Hazel as well.

I've come across quite a few people who have yet to see the full-length trailer for Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games, so here it is. A Victor Banner was released for promotion for the November release, which is posted below the trailer.

In case you haven't heard, Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman for the new 'Man of Steel' sequel.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was released on Wednesday, but I have yet to see it (don't panic, I've made plans to see it this Saturday). I think once that happens, I'll do a duo review for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and City of Bones. The sequel is set to start filming soon.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak has a trailer! Watch it below.

Stephenie Meyer is 'over' Twilight, but I don't blame her. I just want her to write the sequel for The Host.

As you can probably tell, there is even more book-to-movie news than just this, but I feel if I posted all of it this post would go on for a mile. If you want to stay updated, I highly recommend following @PagetoPremiere on Twitter or keep tabs on their website,

That's it!

Over and out,
