We’ve already had a couple of trailers for Divergent, the first film adapted from Veronica Roth’s YA trilogy. This, however, is a quick clip from the movie, which finds Shailene Woodley’s Tris
cunningly scheming a ploy to make Theo James take his shirt off admiring the ink belonging to Theo James’ Four.
Divergent is set in a society where people are divided into social factions based on their personalities. Woodley’s Beatrice “Tris” Prior, however, is different. She doesn’t belong in any one faction, and her divergent nature means she’s a threat to the orderly running of the civilization. Things aren’t easy for those who are identified as different - and by different, we mean dangerous.
Tris joins the Dauntless (courageous) faction but there, together with friends and her mysterious, handsome trainer Four, she must face the perils ahead and figure out the plans of Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), the stern figurehead she’ll have to defeat.
Can Tris survive? Well, given that Summit already has films based on the second and third books in the series (Insurgent and Allegiant) bubbling away in development, the signs are good that she at least makes it out of the first one alive. Divergent is out on March 21.
