With the release date just weeks away now (March in the States, April here), the team behind Divergent have rolled out what they’re calling the final trailer – though we’ve heard this before from studios – that fills in a little more of the backstory.
Taken from Veronica Roth’s book trilogy, Divergent is set in a dystopian, post-war future (Chicago, in this case) 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.
She joins the Dauntless (courageous) faction but there, together with friends and her mysterious, handsome trailer Four (Theo James), Tris must face the perils ahead and figure out the plans of Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), the stern figurehead she’ll have to defeat. Can she survive and win out?
With Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson and Ashley Judd among the cast, Divergent hits the UK on April 4, following a March 21 US release.
