Shailene Woodley Says Insurgent Trailer Action Scenes Made Her Feel ‘like Spider-Man’

In an interview with the NY Daily News, Shailene Woodley opened up about her experience shooting the Insurgent action sequences. Read what she had to say below:

Summit released an action-packed minute of footage from the Robert Schwentke-directed sequel that hits theaters March 20 — with the eye-poping visual of Shailene Woodley’s Tris leaping off a building in an effort to save her mother (Ashley Judd).

Considering the state of Judd’s character at the end of “Divergent,” it’s likely an elaborate dream sequence, but it was no less real for Woodley to shoot.

“‘Insurgent’ has so much more action than ‘Divergent’ did and the action scenes are, like, seven-minute long sequences,” Woodley told the Daily News last month.

The actress, who turns 23 on Saturday, managed to deftly avoid spoilers, but did describe dangling from a great height in a harness and surrounded by green screens for the scene.

“Then they compiled the shots and showed me on the screen what it would look like and I remember being like, ‘ A, technology is f—- crazy and B, it’s so fun,” she said. “I felt like Spider-Man.”

If you haven’t gotten a chance to watch the teaser trailer, check it out HERE. You will see that Shailene does bring up a good point regarding it feeling like “Spider-Man”. I don’t know about you all, but I can’t wait to see the full trailer which is due to be shown on November 21st when “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” premieres in theaters. I am hoping for footage featuring Theo/Four!!
