MTV has released the first ever footage from Divergent, the upcoming movie adaptation of Divergent by Veronica Roth, ahead of this weekend’s Video Music Awards, where the full trailer will premiere during the show’s pre-show.
The trailer gives us our first glimpse at Tris, Four, and Jeanine interspersed with some intense action scenes, including Tris jumping onto the top of a moving train!
MTV is promising a full trailer will air ahead of the VMAs during the live show, which is set to kick off at 8pm EST.
For those of you unfamiliar with Divergent, here’s a plot synopsis:
Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another – for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn’t fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves… or it might destroy her.
Divergent is set to hit theaters on March 21st, 2014!
