Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley in 'Divergent'Summit Entertainment


Hot on the heels of the release of the first trailer for "Divergent" comes an action-packed featurette about the movie's five factions. The preview offers new footage, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the story driving the adaptation of Veronica Roth's bestselling novel.

"In the 'Divergent' world, once you leave the nest, there's no going back," says Shailene Woodley, who stars as protagonist Tris Prior.

As cast members Theo James, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Maggie Q, and Ashley Judd reveal, in the world of "Divergent," people split themselves into five factions based on traits -- compassion, honesty, intelligence, selflessness, and bravery. "These five different factions are families, [and] you have to choose to belong to one of them," explains Winslet, who plays villain Jeanine Matthews.

Tris chooses the brave faction, Dauntless, though she discovers that she's a rare Divergent -- someone who could belong to multiple factions.

The new footage should excite fans, particularly sequences involving Tris jumping off the roof. And there are more glimpses of Winslet as the cold and imposing Jeanine.


"Divergent" opens March 21, 2014.
