Divergent: First Official trailer features Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James and Maggie Q.

The trailer for Divergent debuted at the VMA's yesterday. The screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's YA novel stars Shailene Woodley as Beatrice (Tris) Caleb, a young woman who discovers she’s a “divergent” who doesn’t fit into any one group in her futuristic society. Which you know is pretty much a bummer when the trailer begins with Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews pronouncing "The future belongs to those who know where they belong."  And continues with Nikita's Maggie Q. warning Tris "You're different; they can't control you. You can't let them find out about you."

And if they already know she's a divergent? Not good! 

But that's okay, handsome Four has her back. 

Divergent, the first of a trio of dystopian novels from Veronica Roth slated for adaptation, is poised to be the big new YA film franchise ala Twilight and Hunger Games. Kate Winslet, Maggie Q, Tony Goldwyn, Ashley Judd, Zoe Kravitz, Jai Courtney, and Theo James also star in the Neil Burger-directed sci-fi actioner. Miles Teller who plays Peter in the film (I didn't spot him in this trailer) can be seen opposite Woodley in the current indie hit The Spectacular Now (read my take on the movie) and Ansel Elgort who plays Tris' brother, Caleb Prior is Woodley's love interest in The Fault in Our Stars, which literally started shooting this morning in Pittsburgh. Divergent opens March 21, 2014. 

Here’s the trailer that debuted during the MTV VMAs. Take a look and let me know if you think they've upped Tris' age in the film. That sure doesn't look like a 16 year old age appropriate kiss with hunky Theo James - the man is almost thirty after all!
