We have been getting some exclusive photos here and there, which is no doubt exciting for fans of the futuristic, dystopian world of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series. However, they must be eager to see the first official footage from the anticipated adaptation! Last night during the VMA pre-show, actors Shailene Woodley and Theo James shared the first official teaser trailer!
Like any well done trailer, this first tease gives us our first glimpse of the stylized world and the overall feel of the film. We also get introduced to Tris Prior (Woodley), the situation she is thrown into, and her love interest, Four (James). Plus, we see the relationship between Tris and the villainous, Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet).
For those who may need a refresher, at the age of 16, the people of the Divergent world must make a choice as to which of the five factions they will join. From there, they must then go through a series of initiations to officially become a part of that faction. Each of the five factions have specific values and rules. In Abnegation they value selflessness, in Erudite they value intelligence, in Candor they value honesty, in Amity they value peace, and in Dauntless they value bravery.
Divergent was directed by Neil Burger and also stars Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, and Tony Goldwyn.
