May the odds be ever in your f— oh, no, wait. Sorry. Wrong Young Adult adaptation, wrong spunky heroine. Let’s try that again.
It’s time to choose your faction, Initiates. The new trailer for “Divergent,” the first film in a series based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling Young Adult novels, is finally here. Shailene Woodley stars as Tris (neé Beatrice), a young woman who is forced to choose between continuing on with her family in their austere lifestyle or breaking free and joining a thrill-seeking group in the community, the Dauntless. What she learns about herself in the process of making her choice proves to be life-changing.
Oh yeah, she also meets a life-changingly handsome dude along the way: the mysterious (and did we mention handsome?) Four (Theo James).
Woodley and James debuted the trailer Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and now it’s here on the Internet for all us cord-cutters to enjoy.
Check out the trailer above, featuring Tris’ fear landscape, the knife-throwing and train-jumping action we’ve come to expect from the film, and much more.
“Divergent,” starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, hits theaters March 21.
