Young adult adventure Divergent has released a new trailer online, in which Shailene Woodley’s young protagonist struggles to fit into a society where people are divided into personality-based factions.
Tris is a “divergent” you see, somebody who doesn’t fit into any of those pre-determined groups, and is treated with great suspicion by the powers that be.
Those powers that be are personified by Kate Winslet here, who turns in a supremely chilly performance here, keeping her beady eye firmly on Tris as she attempts to keep her secret to herself.
Take a look at the new trailer, below:
While Catching Fire is currently scooping the YA plaudits, there’s plenty on show here to suggest that Divergent will be well worth a watch in its own right. And refreshingly, there’s not a love triangle in sight.
Directed Neil Burger and co-starring Miles Teller, Jai Courtney and Ashley Judd, Divergent will open in the UK on 4 April 2014.
