"You can control and conquer your fears. That's what makes you dangerous." The release of the next hopeful young adult film franchise is just over a month away with Divergent hitting theaters in March. We've already gotten a solid glimpse of the film in the final trailer, but now a new Olympics TV spot has popped up with Shailene Woodley looking a bit more bad ass. However, I'm still not sold on the film just yet. There's something about it that still feels cheap, and Theo Von isn't helping anything. Anyway, maybe this could turn out to be a decent female-led sci-fi franchise like The Hunger Games. That would be great. Watch!
Here's the Olympics TV spot for Neil Burger's Divergent from the film's YouTube page:
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.
