Film stars Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet

While there is still more than a week until Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” bows, Summit is already getting fans of another popular YA adaptation excited as distrib has released the latest trailer for “Divergent.”

Pic stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller and Kate Winslet with Neil Burger directing.

Pic is based on the first in a trilogy of novels by Veronica Roth, set in a post-apocalytic Chicago divided into five factions. Featuring “Hunger Games”-like teen-on-teen violence, it follows 16-year-old Beatrice Prior (Woodley) whose life changes dramatically when she switches factions. James will play Four, Beatrice’s intense yet charismatic instructor.

The latest trailer shows the true scope of the film while giving people unaware of the books more an idea of what is going on story wise. It also features plenty of James, who may be the least recognizable face out of a fairly large ensemble.

Pic will bow March 21, 2014.
