Today marks the release of the first full trailer for Summit Films' Divergent. Directed by and based on the novel by Veronica Roth, Divergent takes place in a future that assigns people into factions based on isolated virtues. Our heroine, 'Tris' Prior () opts to join an underground resistance movement after "The Test" fails to properly designate her.

Check out the trailer...


Is it just me, or does Divergent seem waaaaaay too similar to The Hunger Games, but with a smidgen of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. It appears the movie's entire reason for being is to profit from Lionsgate's golden calf. Hopefully, (Kat)Tris Prior can establish herself from District 12's champion.

What do you guys think?
