"They're always watching..."

Summit Entertainment have just released their latest one sheet and trailer for young adult adaptation Divergent starring Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), Theo James (Underworld: Awakening) and Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road).

Adapted from the first of Veronica Roth's best selling novels, Divergent is set in a dystopian future world (Chicago in this case) where people are divided into social factions based on their personalities.

Woodley's Beatrice 'Tris' Prior, however, is different. She doesn't belong in any one faction, and her divergent nature means she's a threat to the orderly running of the civilization. Things aren't easy for those who are identified as different – and by different, we mean dangerous. Tris joins the Dauntless (courageous) faction but there, together with friends and her mysterious, handsome trailer Four (Theo James), Tris must face the perils ahead and figure out the plans of Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), the stern figurehead she'll have to defeat.

The new promo certainly emphasises the Hunger Games (2012) style and feeling of this one, with Woodley demonstrating the charisma required to go up against the likes of Winslet. With Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Zoë Kravitz, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson and Ashley Judd among the cast, Divergent hits the UK on 4 April.
