Watch: Shailene Woodley in First 'Divergent' Teaser from the VMAs
"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:
