Summit Entertainment gave MTV the first look at the teaser trailer for Neil Burger’s highly anticipated Divergent, which officially looks like a cheaper version of The Hunger Games meets Total Recall, if you ask me. I mean, it could be cool, but it bothers me that studios just make a copy of a popular film instead of coming up with its own vision. Divergent literally looks like it takes place in the same police state-ruled world of Hunger Games.
In theaters March 21, 2014, “Divergent is a thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.“
The extremely popular young adult novel “Divergent” was written by first time author Veronica Roth and has topped the New York Times Best Sellers list ever since being published in May of 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins Publishers.
Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Tony Goldwyn, Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen and Amy Newbold all star.
