With The Hunger Games coming to an end next year it seems there is no better time than now for the next young adult sensation to storm theaters, but what will it be? There seems to be a modicum of interest in the upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent, but I don’t think the interest here is anywhere near the level seen with franchises such as Harry Potter, Twilight or Hunger Games, but hey, that’s just my perception.
With the sequel, Insurgent, set to begin production in May the question now is whether Divergent will be another Mortal Instruments or will it actually find success? Watch the latest trailer below and you tell me what you think.
Divergent is a thrilling adventure centered around the monumental choice of deciding who you are and discovering who you can be. Set in a future where America is divided into five ideological factions to stabilize society and uphold peace, every citizen must choose a permanent faction at age 16 – either their own or another. Struggling to survive her initiation into the most aggressive and physically demanding of the factions, Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) must uncover her true hidden strengths and risk her family, her new found love, and her very own life to defuse a mysterious conspiracy which could change the balance of power forever.
