What makes you different makes you dangerous. Following in the steps of The Hunger Games, Divergent is set to be the young adult sensation of 2014 – and the official trailer has just been launched!
Based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling novel, Divergent is a gripping action-thriller set in a futuristic world where society has been divided into five factions. As each person approaches adulthood, he or she must choose a faction and commit to it for the rest of their life. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley from The Descendants) chooses Dauntless – the daring risk-takers who pursue bravery above all else. During the Dauntless initiation Tris completes death-defying stunts and faces her inmost fears in spectacular simulations. When she discovers she is “Divergent”, someone who will never be able to fit into just one faction, she is warned that she must conceal this secret or risk her life. As Tris uncovers a looming war which threatens her family and the life of the mysterious Dauntless leader, Four (Theo James), whom she has come to love, Tris must face her greatest test yet – deciding whether revealing she is a Divergent will save her world – or destroy it.
The young adult novel Divergent topped the New York Times Best Sellers list. To date, book sales are over 2.6 million copies for the first two novels and the final book has just been released.
Also starring Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Maggie Q and Ashley Judd, Divergent will be in cinemas April 2014.
