10 Scenes From ‘Fallen’ That We Can’t Wait To See On The Big Screen

Although Fallen is still a bit further away, we already know a lot of things about it. Like, we know a fair number of the cast. Though now it's not an official piece of information, but a list of which are the most anticipated scenes of the movie and I thought it's interesting and fun to read. So here they are:

1. This is the moment that truly changes Luce’s world, I mean she was a ‘regular’ teenager till she decided to kiss her boyfriend on their first date and set him on fire? Or the shadows that she constantly see’s when she dangerously starts remembering her previous life. In the book, it isn’t a complete coherent chapter, she tends to see flashbacks of the moment she kissed Trevor, mostly when she questions her innocence. But in visual this could add so much to ‘Fallen’, even as a flashback, maybe juxtaposed with the dark smoke creatures, it would epic, especially for anyone who hasn’t read the book before seeing the movie.forest-fire.jpg

Perfect Strangers

‘She felt her lips pull up in a smile back at him, but then he raised his hand in the air.
And flipped her off.’ 
2. Of all the ways to start a new school, a school that no one would openly admit to being a part of, being flipped off by a boy that you’re sure you know but can’t quite think where from, is up there as the worst. I have to admit as I read through Luce’s eyes I couldn’t help but laugh when Daniel flips her off. I mean it probably has to be the worst introductory method, EVER! On screen, this would be an awesome way to break up the darkness that is depicted in the book, Daniel seems to live by his own rules and challenges the ‘Sword and Cross’ like most of the reformer’s living at the school but how could you forget him in the darkness with his red scarf.Screen shot 2014-04-22 at 15.20.14.jpg

Graveyard Shift

”What’d she say to you?” he asked.
“Um,” she hedged, racking her brain for a sensible lie. Finding nothing. She cracked her knuckles.
Daniel cupped his hand over hers. “I hate it when you do that.”; he meant it was a pet peeve of his, that knuckle cracking from anyone would bother him, right?’
3. It’s hard not to fall under the same spell Luce is under, Daniel is everything you’d want from a protagonist male character, mysterious, dark, mean, but somehow always her saviour. The ‘Graveyard Shift’ is the first time they both really interact, but he’s still trying to keep Luce away, the thing is in these sorts of situations it tends to be the more you to try to keep someone away, the more they become tied to you. And if you’ve read the book, you know why this is next to impossible for Luce and Daniel. Admit it, you had butterflies when he saves her from the statue… It’s the simplicity that Kate uses in the interaction between the two of them. The fiery temperament’s to the next to normal conversation, you find yourself wanting to know their story, especially since Daniel knows more than he’s letting on! Screen shot 2014-04-22 at 00.11.14.jpg.jpg

The Inner Circle

“It won’t happen again,” Gabbe continued, “I swear to-”
“It can’t happen again,” Daniel whisphered, but his tone practically screamed lovers’ quarrel. “You promised you’d be there, and you weren’t.”
4. It’s weird when Luce leaves the party, you egg her on, her and Daniel seem connected and when he isn’t around she seems like only half of her character, well that’s how I read her. It’s not that she isn’t a strong female protagonist, it’s the total opposite, she is strong, she faces her demons alone, in her darkest times she’s alone. But even through the sarcasm and downright rudeness, Daniel seems like her soulmate. I think we all joined luce in her hatred of Gabbe, girl power and all that, not only was she interrupting every minute Luce was with Cam, she was having secret meetings with Daniel too! wepromise.jpg

No Salvation

“Hi,” he said back, in a much calmer tone of voice. Then, gesturing at her suit, said, “Did you win?”
Luce laughed a sad, self-effacing laugh and shook her head. “Far from it.”
Daniel pursed his lips. “But you were always…
5. There was something utterly sweet about this scene in the book, when reading it you feel that connection between Luce and Daniel that seems to come and go. They argue when they’re together, but then they keep being drawn towards one another too. It’s the small lines where Daniel reveals things about Luce from the past, it starts in the ‘Graveyard Shift’ and somehow he always finds a way to make it seem like he was talking about something else. Lauren Kate does this brilliantly, you’re in the same shoes as Luce, confused, second guessing what the truth is behind what he’s saying and then it’s usually followed by something insensitive to bring you back to your feet.

Shedding Light

 “Who else were you planning on picnicking with before I came along?”
“Before you came along?” Cam laughed. “I can hardly remember my bleak life before you.”
6. I never really knew if I liked Cam, he’s a little overbearing but with Daniel acting out what you think is typical male ‘chauvinistic’ behaviour, he becomes this charming alternative for Luce. You want her to be happy because you know where she is and what she’s dealing with and if the guy she’s attached to by some magical thread doesn’t seem to care, then Cam as an alternative with his ‘odd’ choice of graveyard picnic is actually quite cute, right?  I think on screen this will be a good way to get to know Cam’s character well and allows Harrison Gilbertson to explore and portray his light and dark side.

Where There’s Smoke

‘She’d never known pain as deep and searing as this. She cried out into the night, into the clash of light and shadow overhead.’
7.  This action scene other than the final was one that kept me hooked off my seat, it wasn’t as fast, so I could keep up with Luce and Todd, yep Todd, I was glad we got to see a bit more of him, but it did leave me intrigued by what he had done to end up in the ‘Star and Cross’ in the first place. I mean he kept to himself more often then not and the only person who seemed interested in him was Penn and she was only a student in the school because her father was the groundskeeper. In this scene it’s hard not to pity him though and think the same thing as Luce, whoever’s around her when the dark shadows appear seem to be in danger and it tends to be when she’s with Daniel, talking about him or remembering things that she feels she’s forgotten. When you realise the fire has separated the two from Todd and Luce, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was thinking had her and Ms Sophia actually got out, but of course the reality becomes it’s not them who have to face the danger of what’s to come.

Idle Hands

‘Daniel was standing behind him, rubbing his wrist. “Keep your hands off her.”
“Didn’t hear you,” Cam said, drawing himself up slowly. Oh. My. God. They were fighting. In the library. Over her.
8. That moment, the boy you’ve been stalking, who pretends not to have feelings for you, fights the boy who admits to liking you. Sound confusing? It really wasn’t, I was vouching for Daniel to save Luce from Cam by this point. He didn’t even need to admit how he felt about her, because I suppose in the act of beating Cam up, we’d probably guessed he must have some sort of feelings for Luce. This will be fun to watch on film, as one of the main action sequences it’ll break up the romance and fantasy but still tie the two together. And I mean who wouldn’t want Jeremy Irvine and Harrison Gilbertson fighting over them.

The Lion’s Den

“Shut up,” Daniel said, but he said it softly and so tenderly that Luce surprised both of them by obeying. “I don’t think you’re stupid.” He closed his eyes. “I think you’re the smartest person I know. And the kindest. And”- he swallowed, opening his eyes to look directly at her-”the most beautiful.”
9. Though I felt attached to Daniel’s character while I read chapter to chapter, I did find myself extremely confused by his ‘hot and cold’ behaviour, this is the scene where I was screaming ‘finally’ in my head! I realised at this point as horrible as he was to her, he was always there, always her saviour and maybe just maybe there was a reason he was trying not to get too close. Of course it was short lived as Lauren Kate keeps you on your toes with suspense throughout, you have to wait a little longer to know why he had stayed away and why in this moment of heated passion Daniel lets go, because in actual fact he thinks he’s lost her anyway.

An Open Book

“I don’t understand what you’re still doing here.”
She blinked and nodded miserably, then began to turn away.
“No!” He pulled back. “Don’t leave. it’s just that you’ve never–we’ve never… gotten this far.”
10. This has to be my favourite moment in the book and the one scene that I cannot wait to see in the movie, Luce coming to terms with the truth and finally telling Daniel that she knows what he is. I hope the movie can match the book by not playing it out like a cheesy ‘I know you’re not human, but a fantasy creature’ sort of scene but I think the fantastic Jeremy Irvine and Addison Timlin will do it justice and make it quite deep and meaningful. I mean Daniel isn’t only exhausted with having to be horrible to her, not tell her truth about what he is but he’s exhausted with thinking that when she realises where she knows him from, that he’ll lose her all over again.
