Shailene Woodley Debuts First ‘Divergent’ Trailer

Lionsgate planning March 21 release

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for “Divergent,” highlighting star Shailene Woodley’s initiation into the Dauntless faction.

Woodley and co-star Theo James introduced the footage during MTV’s Video Music Awards pre-show on Sunday.

Divergent” is set to be released next March 21.

The Neil Burger pic is an adaptation of the first novel of Veronica Roth’s trilogy about a post-apocalyptic Chicago. Vanessa Taylor wrote the screenplay.

Lionsgate has noted that the release date is the same slot used last year for the release of its mega-hit “The Hunger Games.”

Story centers on a society divided into five factions, each dedicated to a particular virtue — Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity and Erudite — with all 16-year-olds required on a particular day to select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.
