The first footage from director Neil Burger’s (Limitless) adaptation of the Veronica Roth novelDivergent has landed online ahead of the full trailer debut this coming Sunday, August 25th.  The futuristic thriller takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities.  Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.”  This brief teaser doesn’t reveal much, but fans of the book will be happy to finally see the characters in action.  I was able to visit the Chicago set of the film earlier this year, and as a fan of the book I was encouraged by the direction Burger has taken.  It’s biggest obstacle, however, will be avoiding being labeled as a Hunger Games copycat.  Hopefully the full trailer does a nice job of distinguishing this as a wholly separate–and thoroughly entertaining–dystopian adventure.
