What makes you different makes you dangerous. Following in the steps of Twilight and The Hunger Games, Divergent, starring Shailene Woodly, Theo James and Kate Winslet, is set to be the young adult sensation of 2014 and the final official trailer has just been launched! With exciting new footage, this latest trailer is a must-see!

Based on the first book in Veronica Roth's bestselling trilogy, Divergent takes place in a world where everyone is forced to decide in which of five factions they belong. The extremely popular young adult novel, Divergent, topped the New York Times Best Sellers list. To date, book sales are well over 2.6 million copies for the first two novels and the final book, released in October, is proving just as strong. According to Nielsen BookScan, these were the top three best-selling young adult books of 2013 in the USA.

Divergent is a gripping action-thriller set in a futuristic world where society has been divided into five factions. As each person approaches adulthood, he or she must choose a faction and commit to it for the rest of their life. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley from The Descendants) chooses Dauntless the daring risk-takers who pursue bravery above all else. During the Dauntless initiation Tris completes death-defying stunts and faces her inmost fears in spectacular simulations. When she discovers she is "Divergent", someone who will never be able to fit into just one faction, she is warned that she must conceal this secret or risk her life. As Tris uncovers a looming war which threatens her family and the life of the mysterious Dauntless leader, Four (Theo James), whom she has come to love, Tris must face her greatest test yet deciding whether revealing she is a Divergent will save her world or destroy it. Here is a sneak peek.
