Here’s the trailer in all of it’s YouTubeness glory.
For those who haven’t read the trilogy by Veronica Roth on which the movie is based, the trailer makes an attempt at explaining the books’ complicated mythology: In the future, people are sorted by personality in order to be best subjugated by society. Woodley’s character, Tris Prior, is, however, ‘Divergent’ — someone not easily sorted and thus a threat. It’s a little much to explain in just a little more than a minute… but, knife-throwing! — Time online
Divergent is due in theaters on March 21, 2014.
Can’t wait to watch the film? Hey, the book is *always* better in our opinion. Check out what we have in the collection here at Indianapolis Public Library!
This is a novella, in which a pivotal Divergent scene is retold from another point of view.
Book 3, Allegiant, is on order. Due out October 22.
Happy reading and remember: “what makes you different, makes you dangerous…..”
