Summit premiered the first official Divergent trailer tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards and I have it for you to watch directly below.
Directed by Neil Burger and based on the novel by Veronica Roth, Divergent as a future-set action adventure film set in a 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.
Along with Woodley the film co-stars Kate Winslet, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, ZoÃ« Kravitz and Woodley’s The Spectacular Now co-star Miles Teller.
With the failure of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones this weekend to capture audience attention, Divergent is one of the next unknown young adult properties hoping to hit it big a la Twilight and The Hunger Games. Do you think it can do it?
Summit will release Divergent in theaters on March 21, 2014. Check out the trailer directly below and on the following pages check out 20 pictures from the movie.
