Music Monday (27): Divergent movie OST

Music Monday is a weekly meme created by yours truly. Let's talk about music..on Mondays!
Divergent, a dystopian sci-fi novel from the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth is also now a movie! Divergent is the first action-packed dystopian I've ever read. This book introduced me to the said genre which became one of my favorites. The movie adaptation starring Shailene Woodley (as Tris) and Theo James (as Four/Tobias) was released on March 21, 2014.

I was supposedly going to watch it last Saturday, but due to my tight schedule and my movie buddies asked to, we decided to watch it this weekend or after our qualifying exams. For now, let's enjoy some of the songs off the soundtrack!

  • Beating Heart by Ellie Goulding

But wait! There's more.

According to Wikipedia, Junkie XL composed the score for Divergent and Hans Zimmer (who executive produced the album). The both previously collaborated on number of films. Ellie Goulding is featured as a vocalist on the score. The album will be released in both physical and digital formats internationally on March 31, 2014.


I hope I could squeeze re-reading Divergent in my time (I read it two years ago) so I could point out the lacking/changed scenes LOL.

So! Having Divergent feels these past few weeks? I feel you!
Let me know your favorite scene from the book/movie and/or your favorite song/s from the soundtrack!
Happy new week!
