Divergent Movie Slays With 2 Sexy New Posters, Featuring Shailene Woodley & Theo James

Please strain me so I won't go ballistic here. I do admit I haven't read the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth yet (I am waiting for the complete hardbound package come the publication date of Allegiant), but I could always see if a book is good or not: what's the use of reviews, fandoms and positive reactions, right?

I am always behind new novels these days, but there was once a time when I am among the first readers of the early first new releases of any novel. Having a job changes your priorities and stuff. But I am thankful for a lot of movie adaptations, because they are igniting the fan boy in me once again.

So, before I go haywire, here are the 2 new posters of Divergent, featuring Shailene Woodley & Theo James.

The movie has no full synopsis yet, so here is one from the book itself.

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Here's also a new featurette just for you.

I can't really wait for March 21, 2014 to come when the movie gets released, but at least I still have less than a year to buy the complete trilogy and finish reading them all.
