The worldwide debut of the first footage from Divergent aired tonight during the live pre-show broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, NY.
Watch the footage here below.
At SDCC back in July, we got a chance to see some footage from the film, which showed Shailene Woodley‘s character, Tris, about to choose which societal faction she will belong to for life. In this newly released trailer, the footage was more focused on the fact that Tris is a “divergent,” a person who cannot be categorized into one faction, which means she’s in danger of being eradicated.
Divergent, which also stars Theo James and Zoe Kravitz, comes to theaters on March 21, 2014.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. DIVERGENT is based on the best-selling book series by Veronica Roth.
