Action-packed first trailer for Divergent released: watch now

Last week we saw an extremely short teaser trailer for dystopian thriller Divergent , and this weekend a full-length trailer for the film debuted at the VMAs.

Based on the book series by Veronica Roth, this trailer makes the film look like a cross between Hunger Games and Mission: Impossible .

Which means action aplenty, a kick-ass heroine in the form of Shailene Woodley, and the barest hint of romance between Woodley and Theo James.

Check out the trailer below…

Divergent is set in a future world that’s divided into personality groups. Individuals who don't fit into those groups are branded 'divergent' and considered dangerous.

The film was directed by Neil Burger and also stars Kate Winslet, Maggie Q and Jai Courtney.

Divergent opens on 21 March 2014.
