Watch the brand new Divergent trailer right now:
DIVERGENT FACTION Reaction to final trailer:
The trailer is everything that I’ve ever hoped for. Once Tris is injected for the aptitude test by Tori that’s when the action starts. In the trailer we see the dog simulation and then Tori of course tells Tris her results were inconclusive. In this trailer we see more of my favorite characters Tori(Maggie Q) and Natalie Prior(Ashley Judd). We also get to see a little bit of Tris and Natalie at Visiting day. I get so sad seeing anything that involves Natalie Prior. We also get a better glimpse at Tris heading over to Erudite headquarters. Tris’ simulations when she’s in the tank and when she’s with the crows look great. The part of the trailer that got me the most excited was when Tris and the other Dauntless Initiates ran out of the Choosing Ceremony and were heading for the trains. This is when her journey truly starts. It’s the first day of the rest of her life and that makes be so excited. I can truly tell that this movie will be absolutely amazing! There is no doubt in my mind that it will do great.

The LA Times has just released 3 new Divergent stills. You will find one still above and the other two stills in the article.
In the article Shailene Woodley, Veronica Roth and director Neil Burger all talk about Tris.
One still features Tris and Four on a Dauntless train:
When the director and producers of the dystopian action-adventure film “Divergent” sought inspiration for the movie’s teenage heroine, they didn’t turn to “The Hunger Games’” Katniss Everdeen or “Twilight’s” Bella Swan, as might have been expected. Instead, the filmmakers recalled James Dean’s Jim Stark, the rebellious protagonist who defies his parents and his peers in 1955′s “Rebel Without a Cause.”
“He just doesn’t feel at home,” director Neil Burger said. “So he goes looking for something more.”
“This is a sort of dream city,” said producer Douglas Wick of the film due out March 21 from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the box office giants “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” — films that reached heights that executives are optimistic “Divergent” can attain. “It is a city that saved the world from great chaos. It is a city that has great harmony and the factions worked — but that system is starting to fray, which is our story.”
At the heart of that story is Tris, played by rising star Shailene Woodley (“The Descendants,” “The Spectacular Now”).
Tris is born into Abnegation, the faction that values selflessness, but her personality test reveals she is divergent, having an aptitude for multiple factions — something that is not allowed in the rigidly divided society. She hides her divergence and decides to join Dauntless, the faction based on bravery.
Her choice lands her among a group of tattooed warriors, including love interest “Four” (Theo James), and sees her leaping on and off trains, ziplining, shooting and knife-throwing, and facing off against other kids as part of a brutal initiation into the faction. But as it becomes more difficult to hide her divergence, Tris realizes that the faction system is flawed.
“She starts out questioning where she fits into society, and then by the end of the movie, she’s questioning society itself,” Burger said.
“She really is very, very self-sufficient and is her own kind of warrior in terms of she wanted to do her stunts herself,” producer Lucy Fisher said. “She has a huge amount of inner strength. … She’s very mature beyond her age, as is Tris.”
For Woodley, the draw was the story’s universal appeal, she said, and its parallels with the world we live in.
“It’s not just about young people figuring their way through life,” she said. “It’s about young people being in really adult situations, and they’re treated like adults, which is how adolescents are these days. Everybody’s incredibly smart, and there’s not a lot of movies that do that age range justice.”
That’s just what Roth was aiming for. And though she doesn’t necessarily consider Tris a role model — she can be impulsive and self-destructive — she is guiding her own story.
“Tris is a character with a lot of agency and a lot of power,” Roth said. “One of my rules for myself was Tris has to be somehow responsible for what happens to her, for better or for worse; no acts of God.”

“Divergent” (March 21). This adaptation of the popular dystopian novel finds the people of Chicago divided into factions based on their human virtues. Teenager Tris (Shailene Woodley, left,) learns she has three qualities instead of just one – meaning she’s “divergent” – and discovers dark forces are afoot in the city during her initiation process.

Divergent hits theaters this year on March 21.
Hans Zimmer the scorer for the DIVERGENT film is working on a female superhero theme for Divergent. Tris is very much a superheo so this makes a whole lot of sense.
A new interview with Summit brass about Neil Burger not directing the Divergent sequelInsurgent reveals that Hans Zimmer is planning a superhero theme for Tris.
An extremely brief quote from Lionsgate president of production Erik Feig notes that Zimmer “wants to do a superhero theme for a woman.” The comment was made when Feig was explaining that Burger is tied up with Divergent’s score and visual effects, thus didn’t have time to start work on Insurgent.
Elsewhere in the interview, Feig says that he’s very happy with Burger’s work and reiterated that he’s not directing Insurgent only because of time constraints. “We’re extremely happy with the film Neil has done. He’s delivered an amazing, amazing movie which is really the most important thing. You can’t have a franchise without a successful first film. What Neil has done is the hard part: he cast the movie, he created the world and he set the tone.”
He also left the door open for Burger to return for the third movie Allegiant which Summit just set a March 2016 release date for. “You never know,” he says. “We’re not thinking that far ahead. But 100% I will be doing another Neil Burger movie if he wants to.”
