Divergent fans, we hope you're sitting down. The first official trailer for the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling young adult novel is here!
Starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, Divergent is set in a dystopian futuristic Chicago, where the citizens are divided into distinct factions.
Woodley's Beatrice "Tris" Prior is about to take the crucial aptitude / personality test that all 16-year-olds must to find out where they belong.
Watch the full-length preview for the much-anticipated movie below:
As you might expect, even if you're among the uninitiated, Tris' results make her ... divergent. In other words, she just doesn't fit into any society.
"The only way society can survive is for each of you to claim your rightful place," Kate Winslet, who plays a faction leader, tells the divided groups.
Tris, therefore, must hide who she is as she seeks to learn what makes herself and others deemed divergent so dangerous, before it's too late.
She meets and flirts with her instructor, Four (James), trains to establish her rank among her competitors, and tries to conceal her identity at all costs.
It looks pretty awesome. As does the official poster for the movie, released by Summit and featuring Woodley and James against a futuristic backdrop ...
"What makes you different makes you dangerous" is the official Divergent tagline.
There are several book references in the poster. Can you find them, readers?
Catch it in theaters March 21, 2014 ... and in the meantime, comment below:
