Watch: Shailene Woodley in Super-Suspenseful ‘Divergent’ Trailer
The day has finally arrived! We’ve got our first look at the new Divergent movie, a high-intensity film about a young girl who lives in dystopian Chicago and must fight for her rights and independence. The exciting film stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, and Theo James.
Divergent is set in the future where Chicago is divided up into five factions based on personality traits. One young woman named Beatrice, played by Shailene, doesn’t fit into any of the factions and is thus considered “divergent.”
Because of her inability to work with a specific personality group, she is seen as a threat to the orderly society. Despite living with her life on the line, Beatrice works to break free from the confines of the factions and their brutal leader.
Although it seems to work perfectly as an intense action film, Divergent is originally a three-part book series written by Veronica Roth. The books have often been compared to The Hunger Games series for their focus on young people living in a post-apocalyptic world. If it’s anything like The Hunger Games, we know we’re going to love it!
Check out the high-energy and super-suspenseful teaser for Divergent! Catch the movie in theaters on March 3, 2014!
