Divergent trailer ready for Chicago premiere

November 12, 2013|By Mick Swasko, @swasko | RedEye

The Divergent trailer countdown is on in Chicago. 

At 10:30 a.m., the worldwide premiere of the first full-length trailer for Divergent hits YouTube, and the countdown is already on. Summit Entertainment has posted a live link to the event on its YouTube page, and the hype is real. Even as the clock passed the 16 hour countdown, the page had about 80 live viewers watching the seconds tick away. 

The movie, set in a bleak and futuristic Chicago, follows Beatrice Prior as she makes her decision between one of five distinct factions society has split itself into. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet and Theo James, and is based on a young adult novel by Chicagoan Veronica Roth. 

Just how much Chicago will steal the spotlight in the two mintue, thirty second trailer remains to be seen, but you can watch it right here when it's live at 10:30 a.m. Fans already got a fix Tuesday, when the studio released a poster for the film.
