See a New 'Divergent' Scene: How'd They Make Multiple Shailene Woodleys?

Pin It

Divergent is currently the #1 movie at the box office, and we've got a brand new scene featuring Shailene Woodley...well, it actually features about 50 versions of the starlet. In the clip, Shai as Tris drinks a serum that produces a dreamlike state where she'll decide what faction she belongs in.

Director Neil Burger explains the challenges of bringing the hit book series to life on the big screen. "The question for me, as a director, is what does that mental state look like?" he said of the scene. "I think the idea of reflections and multiple images of Tris were an interesting way to play with those ideas."

They ended up shooting the scene, where Tris sees herself over and over as snarling dogs attack, with 8 different cameras to capture every angle and reaction before putting it together digitally. We think the results are pretty impressive...and scary! Divergent also stars Theo James and Kate Winslet and is in theaters now.
