On the box office, "Divergent" will make investors happy, and no one will say it's the home run they wanted but didn't get. At $56 million for an opening weekend, here's where some analyst somewhere will say, "Ah hah! People know a Hunger Games look alike when they see one, they won't be fooled, and won't flock to this one." And it may be forgotten, with no sequels in the works. Then I see a trailer for another widely read book among middle schoolers: "The Maze Runner," due in September. The book, by James Dashner, at least covers similar physical territory, I'm told, about a teen among castles, fortresses, and in a game. We shall see how long this trend lasts, or if some show wit, are centered around ideas, or have memorable characters with memorable lines.
