‘Tis the season for big blockbusters to begin their campaigns to get your bum in the seats for their films, so it’s no surprise that the latest ‘hit series of young adult books turned into films’ has just unveiled a seriously inviting and sinister trailer.
‘Divergent’ is the dystopian story of a society divided into camps based on their personality traits. Think the Sorting Hat but a lot stricter. Our heroine, Tris, discovers that she is ‘Divergent’ and does not fit neatly into one of the five groups, making her a dangerous threat to the society that seeks to control her, and which forces her to try and escape.
The trailer looks pretty solid – new starlet Shailene Woodley (soon to be breaking your hearts in ‘The Fault in Our Stars’) is an impressive lead as Tris, while Kate Winslet looks set to be as sinister as we’ve ever seen her, which we’re thrilled about. Will it replicate the success of ‘The Hunger Games’? Who knows, but there’s sure to be plenty of fans who’ll be in the cinemas willing to give it a chance.
‘Divergent’ is out in the UK on 4th April 2014. Check out the trailer below.
