Neil Burger (“Limitless”) directs Summit Entertainment’s upcoming young adult franchise hopeful
Maggie Q shows off her hawk tattoo as Dauntless faction member Tori in a new character poster for Summit’s adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” novels.
New posters featuring characters in the Dauntless faction — a group of fearless citizens in Roth’s dystopian society that are dedicated to guarding the fence surrounding Chicago — will be released all week long.
“Most Dauntless get tattoos as a reminder of the past, a mark of progress,” Roth explains of the hawk’s significance. “There’s also the relationship to pain, but mostly tattoos are a sign of overcoming obstacles, for them, a way of marking struggle and progress on the body.”
“Divergent,” which hits theaters in March, stars Shailene Woodley (“The Spectacular Now”) as Tris Prior, a teenager who joins the Dauntless faction, but Q’s character identifies as being divergent — meaning she will never fit into any of the five factions into which society is divided.
Upon discovering a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, Tris must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
Kate Winslet, Theo James, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz and Ashley Judd co-star in the March 21 release.
