Divergent - 'Factions' Featurette

Reported by Outsiders - 05:03 PM 2013.08.27

Following the success of the first-look teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated sci-fi thriller "Divergent," now comes a just-released behind-the-scenes featurette that does its best to explain the dystopian plot behind Veronica Roth's popular YA book series. This first featurette spotlights the five factions in which each person of age must devote their adult lives to serving their chosen group in the distraught world of a futuristic Chicago. Among the many youths is a 16-year-old girl named Beatrice 'Tris' Prior (Shailene Woodley) who finds out that she is a "divergent": a person who can choose his/her own fate between any of the five factions.

Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another - for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves ... or it might destroy her.

Divergent stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Ray Stevenson, Ashley Judd

Release: March 21st, 2014
