So there are these five ways of thinking, and if you don't belong to one … aw, we'll let the stars tell it
Looking forward to seeing “Divergent” next year, but haven't read the books yet? Then this behind-the-scenes featurette is for you.
The latest look at the upcoming Summit release features stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James and more explaining the premise of the young adult science fiction film.
“After so many years of war and pain, humanity has reached a time where the only way they perceive themselves to survive is to create a new system of democracy,” James explains. “And that is splitting yourself into five different ways of thinking, five factions.”
Woodley leads the cast as Tris Prior, a young woman who learns she is Divergent — meaning she'll never fit into one of the five groups. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it's too late.
“These paradigms of thinking — compassion, honesty, intelligence, selflessness and bravery — represent society,” Woodley says.
“Divergent” doesn't land in theaters until March 24, 2014, but the marketing is in full swing, anyway.
