Full trailer for Divergent is here! Is this the next Hunger Games?

11.13.2013

Here we have the full trailer for DIVERGENT, starring Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and Theo James. The film is based on a crazy popular Young Adult book series by Veronica Roth and while it may be easy to deride it as a blatant HUNGER GAMES wannabe, well… this trailer won't silence any critics. That said, the preview should have no problem bringing delight and anticipation to the title's legion of fans.

As an outsider getting a peek at the film for the first time, it looks strangely bland, especially in contrast to the vivid visual style and scope of THE HUNGER GAMES films. And if I hadn't read the synopsis, the storyline would still be rather vague. (Other than the tale centers on a young woman in a futuristic society who has to undergo training in order to determine a destiny she's not prepared for. That much is apparent, and I suppose that's all that matters.)

To clear up any confusion about said storyline, here's the official synopsis:

In a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior 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.

Directed by Neil Burger, DIVERGENT also stars Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz and Tony Goldwyn.

So what do you think? Does DIVERGENT look like a winner to you? Or are you planning to… diverge from it when it hits theaters March 21st?

All mythology is fake, but some some is more bullshitty than others

Divergent is firmly in the latter category for mythology-based stories. The trailer's dialogue is cringe-inducing. I think Shailene Woodley is incredibly hot, but that's about the only nice thing I have to say in regards to this flick.

This looks and acts almost exactly like the Host only with a different name. It does look slightly better than the hippie commune we got in The Host but not much else.

I had completely written this movie off until I realized it was directed by Neil Burger, who IMO is one of Hollywoods most underrated directors. Interview with the Assasin was an incredible film, he's only made good movies since! So him with a big budget and Woodley as the lead, who I have a celeb crush on, I'm so there.

Neil Burger's a good director, it's just that this looks pretty derivative. However, I would much rather Hunger Games be the young adult novel adaptation Hollywood tries to emulate instead of Twilight.

Just something odd looking about this girl...

she has an odd stature, and i can picture her as a 50 year old woman already. Does that make sense? I don't have any opinions on the trailer, hated the first trailer so much i dont even want to watch this, just had to throw that out there for a few thumbs down.

Eh…..

This trailer isn't great, but it still looks interesting enough for me to want to check it out. Plus, Kate Winslet is in it and she's fantastic in every movie she's in.

Enjoyed the books, so I look forward to seeing this. Some of it looks how I imagined, so I'm happy about that, but some feels WAYYY different than the books. I think this is a neat series, but it is almost more about self discovery than a type of Hunger Games thing.
