Neil Burger reacts to Divergent / The Hunger Games comparisons

B ased on a series of hugely successful Young Adult novels, set in the future, and featuring a bad-ass, strong female lead, it's somewhat predictable that Divergent is being compared to that other sci-fi franchise, The Hunger Games .

During a natter to discuss all things Divergent (expect a host of interesting videos coming soon), we quizzed the director on the endless comparisons, and what he thought of their validity.

Watch the video below to hear what he has to say.

Divergent opens in UK cinemas 4 April 2014.
