“The future belongs to those who know who they are,” one character says early on in the first full trailer for “Divergent.”
The simple statement is the crux of the preview, which dropped Wednesday, after Summit heavily teased the worldwide trailer premiere on Youtube.
“Divergent” takes place in near-future Chicago, where all people are forced to identify with a faction based on personality traits, falling into categories like Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite.
But when a young woman named Tris discovers that the falls into none of these categories, she finds that she is Divergent – and considered dangerous.
Kate Winslet stars as her adversary, a leader of the Erudite faction named Jeanine Matthews. Theo James, Ansel Elgort (“The Fault in Our Stars), Maggie Q (“Nikita”), Zoe Kravitz and Miles Teller (“The Spectacular Now”) also star.
“Divergent” will be released on March 21, 2014. Have you read the books? Are you excited for the film adaptation? Share your thoughts on the trailer below!
