New trailer arrives for dystopian sci-fi Divergent: watch now

Young adult saga Divergent has released a brand new trailer online, starring Shailene Woodley as a young girl living in a society in which the population is divided into personality-based factions.

Woodley plays Tris, a misfit whose personality type doesn’t fit into any of these pre-assigned groups, labelling her a “divergent”, and a perceived threat to the status quo.

Sure enough, Tris’s secret lands her in grave danger, with the future of her world soon weighing upon her young shoulders.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

The comparisons with The Hunger Games are obvious, but with a talented cast and acclaimed source material, we’re hoping that Divergent can prove itself more than a pale reflection of that YA trendsetter.

Directed by Neil Burger and co-starring Kate Winslet, Ashley Judd and Jai Courtney, Divergent will open in the UK on 21 March 2014.
