A new 30-second spot for Divergent features the disagreements between Tris and Jeanine.
The two characters are respectively played by Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet. This promo appears to clue in new audiences on the fact that Jeanine and Tris will be at odds, and a brief interview clip with Winslet has her explaining that “[Jeanine] wants to take over, and sneak them out, and destroy.”
Many of the clips in the promo have been seen in past trailers, but there may be one or two minor things you notice that you haven’t seen before.
Theo James also appears in the promo as Four, but his role isn’t explained this time around.
In Divergent, Tris comes to realize that she doesn’t belong in a particular faction which goes against the rules currently enforced by Jeanine in a dystopian Chicago. The synopsis for the film reads: “In a future world people are divided into factions based on personality, a teenager is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, her life is threatened.”
The film hits theaters on March 21 (in nearly one month!). As we approach the release, numerous announcements are being made piece by piece. For example, earlier this month we learned that Zedd and Ellie Goulding will feature on the Divergent soundtrack. We’ll have more about Zedd’s song “Find You” in the coming days, because we attended an event with the artist last night in Los Angeles.
