To celebrate news that Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy has taken the top three spots on USA Today’s list of best-selling books this week, Summit has released a new look at leading duo Shailene Woodley and Theo James from the upcoming action blockbuster.
The first full-length trailer launched back in November, helping to cement the buzz that has been building for months towards the film’s arrival this spring.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a future where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (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.
Woodley and James top an impressive ensemble, starring alongside Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Ashley Judd, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz, Ray Stevenson, Ansel Elgort, Christian Madsen, Amy Newbold, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, and Ben Lamb.
Neil Burger (Limitless) is at the helm, directing from a script by Snow White and the Huntsman’s Evan Daugherty and Game of Thrones’ Vanessa Taylor, adapting the first in Veronica Roth’s original trilogy of novels.
Summit has already set release date for the sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant, due out in March 2015 and March 2016, respectively, showing just how much faith they have in the franchise.
Divergent will be released in regular and IMAX cinemas on March 21st in the US, following a little later in the UK on 4th April. In the meantime, here’s the new look at Woodley and James from the film, as well as a new hi-res image from the full-length trailer.
