The LA Times Hero Complex has release three new stills from Divergent to accompany their recent article on the film. See new images of Tris and Four from the film, along with an except from Hero Complex below!
“This is a sort of dream city,” said producer Douglas Wick of the film due out March 21 from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the box office giants “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” — films that reached heights that executives are optimistic “Divergent” can attain. “It is a city that saved the world from great chaos. It is a city that has great harmony and the factions worked — but that system is starting to fray, which is our story.”
At the heart of that story is Tris, played by rising star Shailene Woodley (“The Descendants,” “The Spectacular Now”).
Tris is born into Abnegation, the faction that values selflessness, but her personality test reveals she is divergent, having an aptitude for multiple factions — something that is not allowed in the rigidly divided society. She hides her divergence and decides to join Dauntless, the faction based on bravery.
Her choice lands her among a group of tattooed warriors, including love interest “Four” (Theo James), and sees her leaping on and off trains, ziplining, shooting and knife-throwing, and facing off against other kids as part of a brutal initiation into the faction. But as it becomes more difficult to hide her divergence, Tris realizes that the faction system is flawed.
“She starts out questioning where she fits into society, and then by the end of the movie, she’s questioning society itself,” Burger said.
