Just before the VMAs on Sunday, MTV premiered the an exclusive clip for Divergent, the Neil Burger-directed adaptation of Veronica Roth's young adult novel, starring Shailene Woodley.
The fast-paced trailer gave fans glimpses of tattoos, death-defying leaps, flying knives and gun-toting soldiers.
As Beatrice "Tris" Prior, the book and film's 16-year-old protagonist and narrator, Woodley lives in a futuristic dystopian Chicago, where society is broken into five factions, each dedicated to a different virtue. Abnegation (where Beatrice was raised) is for the selfless, Dauntless is for the brave, Amity is for the peaceful, Candor is for the honest and Erudite is for the intelligent.

Shailene Woodley got some sage advice from someone who knows what it's like to be the face of a major movie franchise.
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, 21, got straight to the point when it came to helping guide Woodley, also 21, as excitement builds for her upcoming Divergent series.
Woodley, who calls the instruction "really beautiful advice," told Vanity Fair that Lawrence said simply, "[The experience] will be the best thing that ever happened. But don't be an idiot, do a sex tape [or] do drugs. And go to Whole Foods when your movie opens."
