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.
Here’s the full poster:
