New 'Divergent' Photos Dive Into Shailene Woodley's Dauntless World
Divergent won't hit theaters for another nine months, but Summit has released 10 new behind-the-scenes photos to get fans excited for the upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth's sci-fi YA novel.
Divergent is set in a futuristic world where people are divided into groups (called factions) that each focus on a certain value, ranging from peace to bravery and intelligence. When an individual turns 16, he takes a test that determines which faction he is best suited for, and then must decide whether to stay with the faction of his parents, or leave to join another group and never see his family again.
The lead character in the books, named Beatrice (Shailene Woodley), is a young woman who decides to leave her family’s group and transfer to the Dauntless, who focus on bravery. She is a rare individual because when she took the test, she discovered that she could fit into more than one faction, making her a Divergent, viewed as a risk to society.
After joining Dauntless, "Tris" begins to fall for her instructor, Four (Theo James).
The 10 new photos will give fans of the book a better idea about what the world of Dauntless will look like on the big screen.
Divergent also stars Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort and Ashley Judd. Directed by Neil Burger (Limitless), the film has a theatrical release date of March 21.
