Comic-Con 2013: ‘Divergent’ Reveals New Stills
With Comic-Con 2013 officially in full swing, news about some of the most anticipated films on the horizon has stopped trickling and started gushing. You may have already read our comprehensive report of what went down at the panel for ‘Divergent,’ but now you can get a little taste of what everyone who was in attendance actually got to see! A new batch of stills from the hotly anticipated adaptation of the popular young adult series has arrived, giving us a new look at stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and more!
Like ‘The Hunger Games‘ before it, ‘Divergent’ is a science fiction adventure story set in a dystopian future. Also like ‘The Hunger Games,’ it’s based around a slightly bonkers (and hopefully interesting) premise that allows an entire world to be built around it. The only thing missing right now is the $400 million gross that has given ‘The Hunger Games’ an enormous amount of weight in Hollywood. Can ‘Divergent’ be the next big thing? Can it co-exist alongside its already-famous cousin? We don’t know. We’re all old and don’t know what you kids like. All we can do is copy and paste the official synopsis, point you toward the new stills and hope for the best:
Based on Veronica Roth’s #1 New York Times best-selling novel, DIVERGENT is a thrilling action adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Shailene 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 different so dangerous before it’s too late.
‘Divergent’ is directed by Neil Burger and opens in theaters on March 21, 2013. Check out the images below!
