BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Do you ever get the sense that people who design the Hollywood tattoos for stuff like Divergent and The Mortal Instruments have never actually met anybody with tattoos? Like, did these characters just up and get all their tats yesterday? Also:

There’s surfing in this one but also motocross racing down steep mountains, dangerous rock climbing, extreme snowboarding and exhilarating flights in windsuits, all filmed in wide-open spaces over 11 countries and symbolizing the redo’s larger-scale global view.

You could argue with me that the original was just as ridiculously “EXTREEEEME” in its day, and…well, you’d probably be right, actually. So bring it on.
