Summit has released another two character posters for their upcoming adaptation of Divergent, and there are strong hopes of The Hunger Games type of success for this new franchise.
Like the previously released character poster brandishing tattoos, the two below also see the characters hiding in the shadows. Here we get a look at Tori (Maggie Q) and Max (Mekhi Phifer).
Tori’s poster reveals a hawk on her back, and she explains the tattoo like this: “In some parts of the ancient world, the hawk symbolized the sun. Back when I got this, I figured if I always had the sun on me, I wouldn’t be afraid of the dark. . . . Now it reminds me of the fear I’ve overcome.”
In the book, Max is the Dauntless leader who’s there at the rooftop when Tris and the other initiates are about to take the plunge by leaping off the building and down into Dauntless headquarters.
The film, directed by Neil Burger (Limitless), take place in the future where people live in a society that is divided into factions based on their personalities. Tris doesn’t fit into any of the factions and is labelled as a Divergent, and learns of a conspiracy to destroy all who are labelled as such.
The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Ansel Elgort, Christian Madsen, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, and Amy Newbold.
Divergent is due for release on 21 March 2014.
