The first footage for Divergent made its debut last night at the MTV Video Music Awards live pre-show.
The film is set in a dystopian Chicago in a society where people are divided into five factions dedicated to a specific virtue: Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). There’s only one chance in a person’s life to switch to a different faction, and then at that point, they can never go back to their friends and family of their original faction. Then there are the “divergents,” those who cannot be categorized into one group, which puts them in danger, as those in charge want to rid the world of these people.
Summit Entertainment has released an infographic based on the 5 virtue-based factions ofDivergent. Check it out here below.
Divergent, which stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, 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.
