Summit is hoping that Divergent will be its young adult replacement for the Twilight franchise, and as they did with their earlier hit, they’re started the promotion early in the hope of getting fans of the novels excited. We’ve already had a few pics from the film, and now another one has shown up – although I’m hoping the whole movie isn’t quite as beige as this.
Neil Burger is directing the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling novel, which takes place in a dystopian future made up of five factions that are based on different personality types. As they come of age, everyone must join the faction they fit into, but certain people are ‘divergents’, showing traits from more than one group. Tris (Shailene Woodley) uncovers that these people are seen as dangerous and the government wants to get rid of them.
The other person in the pic is Ansel Elgort, who plays Tris brother, Caleb Prior. They both become part of the both part of the Abnegation faction, and this appears to be part of their selection of training.
The likes of Theo James, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Ashley Judd and Maggie Q co-star. It’ll be out next March.
