Shailene Woodley might’ve been dumped from the upcoming Spider-Man movie, but she’s not going anywhere. The actress is the star of Summit’s (yup, the same studio that gave the world Twilight) Divergent, which is based on a YA novel by Veronica Roth about a futuristic world where people are divided based on their human traits. Summit has sent over 10 new photos featuring our young star and others. Check them out.
Directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Limitless), the movie is set in a futuristic dystopia where Woodley’s Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior discovers she is Divergent and thus will never fit into any group of five factions that are used to divide people. Once she discovers that there’s a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she joins a rival group of people, where she falls in love for an older man.
Divergent has been compared to The Hunger Games; there’s the futuristic element, a female heroine and the whole rebel aspect. But seriously, at this point, what YA adaptation hasn’t been compared to Hunger Games? There’s a pretty good ensemble going on here, and based on Summit’s track record, we’re going to predict that Divergent will be huge. We can already see the fans camping out for the premiere, don’t you. The movie hits theaters March 21, 2014.
Here are the photos:
What do you think? Do the photos make Divergent seem worthwhile?
