The first-ever footage from Divergent was shown to fans at the Hall H panel yesterday on San Diego Comic Con’s first day. While the footage is not available online just yet (ugh, right?!), Yahoo! Movies reported on what it included:
Fans got a sneak peek at the film, directed by Neil Burger (“Limitless”), where stars Woodley and Zoe Kravitz are seen riding a train in a futuristic Chicago. The pair leap from the train to the top of a broken down seven story building in order to join other aspiring members of the Dauntless, a tribe of individuals in the city known for the bravery. “There are green screen ways to to that,” Burger said, “but they really climbed atop a train and jumped from it.”
The group is then challenged to dive from the rooftop into a cavernous opening more than a hundred feet below. Woodley’s character Triss volunteers to go first, landing in a net below.
“What, did you get pushed?” asks Four, a fellow member of the Dauntless played by Theo James.
The rest of the footage then showcased a training montage in which Triss stands against a wall while Four throws a series of knives at her head.
After a series of scenes showing Triss climbing a giant Ferris Wheel, boxing and throwing her own knives at a target, Four says, “Maybe you do belong here.”
Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Can’t wait for it to be available online and we get to share it with all of you!
