A dystopian future world where mankind is divided into factions, ruled by a corrupt cruel government. A girl that has to make a difference by joining or resisting because she’s the ‘chosen one’. Quite frankly we’ve seen all of this before in Hunger Games. Yet, after watching the latest Divergent Movie Trailer we really felt it may just be the next dystopian blockbuster once Hunger Games have come and gone. The release date for Divergent is set for March 21 2014, before the third and last Hunger Games movie, but we believe this may give the movie goers something ‘to fill the gap’
Based on the first book in Veronica Roth’s popular young adult trilogy, Divergent takes place in a world where 16-year-olds must decide in which of five factions they belong, whether it’s the faction they were born into or not. For the film’s protagonist, Tris, the faction test reveals she is someone who can’t be categorized, someone who is divergent.
Tris is played by Shailene Woodley, who received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 2011’s The Descendants, but might still be most recognized for her five-season run as a teen mom on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Other familiar faces that pop up in the trailer include Ashley Judd as Tris’ mother and Kate Winslet as government worker Jeanine Matthews.
Divergent is set for release on March 21.
