Divergent Movie Trailer: Tris and Four Fight Back (and Kiss!)
The new Divergent trailer is here! Check out this extensive peek at Veronica Roth’s futuristic world of color-coordinated factions, intrepid divergents, and hot back tattoos.
Our favorite parts:
Chicago in the future
The world Veronica Roth imagined in Divergent comes to life in this trailer. Here we see a crumbling future Chicago minus one of its most famous features—Lake Michigan, which dried up into a swamp-like wasteland.
The society is organized into factions, seen here in color coordinated neat little groups for the Choosing ceremony.
Tris goes takes her choosing simulation to find out which faction she should join.
Tris finds an unconventional way out of the simulation
We also get a sneak peek into the daredevil thrill-seeking Dauntless lifestyle. Here is Tris’s first glimpse of Dauntless members, arriving in their usual train jumping style.
Then her stomach-dropping entrance into the compound
And a terribly close call in knife-throwing
Undaunted by danger, Tris begins a gravity defying ferris wheel climb with Four
We also get a peek at the Dauntless compound’s death-defying chasm, presumably during the climactic chase through the compound at the end.
And finally, the skyscraper ziplining! Those Dauntless folks don’t seem to care about concepts the rest of us worry about—like gravity and death.
Tris and Four Chemistry
Tris and Four are pretty much making “kiss me” eyes at each other from their first meeting, when Four pulls Tris off the net and welcomes her to Dauntless.
Then Four gets all touchy feely during training.
And then he shows her his gorgeous back tattoos, and well…..
….how can a girl resist touching that ink? It’s not just for the swoons though, he has all the faction symbols because wants to be brave AND kind AND smart….AND oh, I forget the rest of the meaning behind it, but he’s very clearly communicating that he’s HOT with this tat.
And now they’re making out! Thank goodness Four lost his shirt along the way. More back tattoo please!
Divergents Fight Back
Ok, this isn’t all about fearless city exploration and making out (but thankfully that’s a hefty part of it). It’s also about rebellion, individualism, and fighting back, divergent style. So even though Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews is threatening Tris and Four in a big way….
…they’re not having it. Four takes down a circle of bad guys like they’re dominoes…..
….and then makes a running train jump escape with Tris.
Tris and Four are not going to be Dauntless puppets, they’re going to fight back.
