Divergent Teaser Trailer

"If you want to survive, follow me." It's time to get a first look at the next new sci-fi young adult adaptation - Divergent, based on Veronica Roth's book of the same name, starring Shailene Woodley as Tris. Set in a dystopian future, society is divided into factions based on personalities, but Tris is one of the few "Divergents", someone who acts on their own independent will and can't be controlled. This footage has a bit of a Hunger Games tone, but still has potential to be entertaining in its own way. Theo James co-stars, along with Kate Winslet and Maggie Q. Give it a watch, at least for Shailene. "Don't try and define me."

Here's the first teaser for Neil Burger's adaptation of Divergent, direct from MTV and the VMAs:

Divergent is a thrilling adventure set in a dystopian future Chicago 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, and when she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. Kate Winslet, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz and more star in the film from director Neil Burger (Limitless), written by Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Vanessa Taylor ("Game of Thrones"), based on Veronica Roth's book of the same name. Divergent hits theaters on March 21st, 2014.

  • Actually got a feel of Equilibrium from that for some reason, in a good way.

      Equilibrium is actualy one of the best scifi movies and this looks like just another teen flick. I would not associate such greatness with stuff like this.
      • It was more the feel of the movie, Equilibrium was obviously constrained a bit with the budget, but still managed to deliver a good film.
  • very good movie, I'll wait to see the movie
    • ali3000
      Ummm... what...? It's a very good movie, yet, you haven't seen it...?
      • David Diaz
        Probably meant very good trailer.
  • avconsumer2
    I was about to say "too many dystopian future sci fi's"... but.... NAAAAAHH!!! Looks neat.
  • Nielsen700
  • Zen
    Pretty great book, but this trailer has me sufficiently nervous...
  • Wafffles
    Haven't read the book, so this might very well have a legit answer, but why is everyone split up by personality? What's the point? From just this trailer it makes about as much sense as a dystopian future where everyone is split into hotdog lovers versus hamburger lovers, and any pizza lovers are killed. Sure, it's something to base a book/movie off of I guess, but it doesn't seem to have any logical motive.
  • DavideCoppola
    Surprised I didn't hate this.
  • very good movie, I'll wait to see the movie
  • From just this trailer it makes about as much sense.
  • I watched a good MV lead designer and its amazingly. I love music and some of the deeper level thinking that went into tunes.
