Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate, those responsible for such wonderful films as the Twilight saga and The Hunger Games are on the hunt for the young adult market once more, and this time their weapon of choice is Divergent. Based on the young adult novels by Veronica Roth, Divergent:
is set in a post-apocalyptic Chicago, where people are separated into five distinct factions: Amity, Abnegation, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. Its citizens and residents are divided based on dominant personality traits, but some are unique and cannot be classified. These people are called “Divergent” and have no place in society. The story follows Beatrice “Tris” Prior, who is discovered to be Divergent and must figure out how to stay alive.
I admittedly have not read the books, as the whole premise of their 'society' sounds a bit ridiculous to me. However, for those of you who are fans, here we have a clip of what is presumably Four and Tris's first kiss. Have a look:
I can't say the acting (or the script) on display in the clip a convinced me.
Divergent will appear in theatres on March 20th, 2015
What did you think of the clip?
