With less than two months until the theatrical release of “Divergent,” the highly-anticipated film adaptation of the best-selling dystopian novel, the film’s stars revealed a first look at the movie’s new trailer on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday.
In a dual appearance, actors Shailene Woodley (Beatrice “Tris” Prior) and Theo James (“Four”) appeared on the late night show Monday night to discuss their upcoming adventure flick and celebrate the world premiere of the film’s final trailer. The acting twosome, who kicked off their appearance by ziplining into host Jimmy Kimmel’s Los Angeles studio, later shared their reasons for agreeing to star in the adventure film franchise.
“I think it’s something that you need to really have a bit of a think about and contemplate how it’s going to change your career and your life,” said James, 29, when discussing his decision to sign onto the leading role, the native UK actor later adding, “But on the same token, you don’t know what anything’s going to be really and you can’t predict the future.”
Fellow “Divergent” actress, film star Shailene Woodley, 22, also had similar sentiments. “I think sort of the lack of anonymity would be the most daunting factor in taking on a movie like this but you never know, you never know what is going to happen," said Woodley.
The new trailer comes three months after the initial teaser was released by Summit Entertainment in November. While the new exclusive sneak peek shows similar clips showcased in the first trailer, new clips, including a better look into “Dauntless” fighters Tris and Four’s romantic scenes, and Tris’s “testing” are also included.
“Divergent” will be released in U.S. theaters March 21, 2014.
