Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet go head-to-head in the first Divergent trailer
Have you been bored with the current theatrical releases and long for another Young Adult novel adaptation in order to get your juices flowing? Well wait no more! Today the trailer for DIVERGENT, the latest in the YA franchises has been released, and I have to admit that it doesn’t look like the worst adaptation we’ve seen lately (that prize probably goes to BEAUTIFUL CREATURES). Maybe it’ll be better with the addition of Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley and Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, but that’s a bit of a stretch.
Here’s a synopsis for the film: DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. DIVERGENT is based on the best-selling book series by Veronica Roth.
Directed by Neil Burger, DIVERGENT stars: Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q and Jai Courtney. DIVERGENT hits theaters on March 21, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
