Following last week's too-short debut teaser for "Divergent," the hotly anticipated movie adaptation of Veronica Roth's dystopian YA novel, a longer trailer for the Shailene Woodley actioner premiered before last night's MTV VMAs.
This new preview introduces Woodley's character, Beatrice "Tris" Prior, a 16-year-old Chicagoan who finds out that she's "divergent" -- that she doesn't fit nicely into one of five predesignated personality-type factions.
"The future belongs to those who know where they belong," announces Kate Winslet at the beginning of the clip.
Which means defying categorization is a very dangerous thing. After learning her new label, Tris asks Maggie Q's Tori, "And what if they already know?"
"Then you're already dead," Tori whispers.
Tough-as-nails Tris scores some handsome help in the form of muscley Theo Jones, but even then her troubles are far from over.
The Neil Burger-directed film, which also stars Miles Teller, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Mekhi Phifer, and Zoe Kravitz, takes the leap into theaters March 21, 2014.
