At the end of last weekend, the first teaser for Divergent, the adaptation of Veronica Roth's young adult novel, starring Shailene Woodley came online. While the film still has some convincing to do for audiences who haven't read the book, it seems like there's potential for some intriguing sci-fi here. Now the first featurette is online featuring interviews with Woodley and other cast members like Theo James, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Ashley Judd and more as they gush about the story and the world in which it exists. There's some good info for anyone not familiar with the books, and a cool look behind the scenes.
Here's the first featurette for Neil Burger's adaptation of Divergent from YouTube:
Divergent is a thrilling adventure set in a dystopian future Chicago where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities.
