Summit Entertainment has released the first trailer for the upcoming action adventure film Divergent. The film is directed by Neil Burger and stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, and Zoë Kravitz. Divergent is based on the popular book written by Veronica Roth, and is the first in a series of books. Divergent is scheduled to hit theaters on March 21, 2014.
Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another – for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior (Woodley) makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn’t fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves… or it might destroy her.
