The first Divergent footage debuted today at the movie’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, presented by Veronica Roth, Shailene Woodley, and Theo James – and featuring Kate Winslet!
Fans of Divergent, the upcoming adaptation of the best-selling dystopian YA novel, got their first look at footage from the film today. The Divergent footage was presented at the film’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon, which also included a discussion with author Veronica Roth, director Neil Burger, and stars Shailene Woodley (Tris) and Theo James (Four).
‘Divergent’ Comic-Con footage description:
The extended clip began with Tris’ jump onto and from the train as a new Dauntless with her friend Christina, and then continuing to volunteer and jump off the roof into Dauntless headquarters. The clip also introduced Four helping Tris off of the net, and Tris’s selection of her new identity. The clip continued into a sizzle reel of Dauntless training, complete with impressive flips, gunfighting, and crowdsurfing. Other snippets included a shot of Tris taking the Faction test and receiving her tattoos, and a shot of Kate Winslet as Erudite leader, Jeanine. The reel ended with Four hurling his knives at Tris, the final knife leaving her with blood on her ear.
Divergent will hit theaters on March 14, 2014.
