So, we went to some people who we thought might know: the cast of 'Divergent.'
Tonight at MTV's VMAs (how do they even have video music awards when they don't play music videos?), the first full trailer for Summit's hot new young adult adaptation 'Divergent' made its debut. The film, starring Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller (both of recent indie 'The Spectacular Now') looks to breathe new life into the genre, much like its predecessor, 'The Hunger Games.'
