'Divergent' trailer: Shailene Woodley's Tris must face her 'worst fears'

Posted on

Divergent Trailer

Teenage years are generally a time of tumultuous physical and emotional transformation — of growth spurts and angsty mood swings. But for Shailene Woodley’s 16-year-old Tris, it’s all of that plus a dash of life-or-death stakes. Not an ordinary teen fitting into a single faction, her transformation is all about survival.

In the new full-length trailer for Divergent, based on the first book in the Veronica Roth-penned dystopian trilogy, we see Tris Prior have her locks shorn off, almost drown, dodge speeding knives, and get thrown down by her instructor, Four (Theo James), who urges her to conquer her fears — “If you want to survive, follow me,” he says.

While training, Tris must evade the watchful eye of Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), who wants to extinguish the divergents. “The future belongs to those who know where they belong,” she warns.
