Looking forward to seeing “Divergent” next year, but haven’t read the books yet? Then this behind-the-scenes featurette is for you.
“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.
