DIVERGENT Trailer and Infographic

Posted on August 26, 2013 at 7:46 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

Last night during the MTV Video Music Awards Summit Entertainment debuted the first trailer from director Neil Burger’s (Limitless) adaptation of the Veronica Roth novel Divergent. The film takes place in a future where people are divided into factions based on their personality. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.” This short trailer is clearly aimed at a younger MTV audience (man that makes me sound old), but does hint at the adult themes and severe situation that Tris finds herself in. I haven’t read Roth’s novel, but I am told that it is extremely gripping, and hopefully that will transfer to the big screen.

The film also stars Theo James, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Ansel Elgort, Christian Madsen, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, and Amy Newbold. Divergent opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on March 21, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Divergent:

DIVERGENT is a thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
