Divergent Trailer Teaser. Neil Burger‘s Divergent (2014) trailer teaser stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Zoe Kravitz. Divergent‘s plot synopsis: from the novel Divergent, “In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.”
On the trailer teaser and when you can expect to see the full length version:
Summit posted the new teaser. It’s probably more accurately described as a teaser for the trailer, since the first full-length trailer debuts during the MTV VMAs on Sunday.
The video doesn’t explain much about who Tris is or what her world is like, choosing instead to focus on the action. It seems like the smart move. The dialogue is pretty generic (“You’re different,” “If you want to survive follow me”) but the fight scenes look fun. Part of Tris’ training to join the Dauntless involves simulations, so we could be in for some eye-popping, logic-defying visuals.
