First full length ‘Divergent’ trailer is finally here — and it’s awesome!


divergentThe first full length trailer for Divergent, the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best selling novel of the same name, has finally arrived! The trailer was released during MTV’s VMA pre-show following days of massive anticipation in the YA community.

The teaser trailer does a really great job of touching on some of the major points of the book. Fans who are familiar with the story will be happy to see some old friends, like the train-jumping scene, the fighting, the tattoos, the day Tris decides to switch factions, and of course… Four! Those who aren’t familiar get a taste of what it means to be divergent, and the stakes it holds in this dystopian world.

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!
