The business of adapting bestselling young-adult books into movies can result in untold riches (see 'The Hunger Games' and 'Harry Potter') or it can result in something instantly and completely forgettable (does anyone remember 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'?). The upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth's novel is certainly hoping for the former, and unlike so much of the competition, the new 'Divergent' trailer makes it look like the film may have the pedigree to pull it off.
As 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is ready to unleash itself upon theater goers next week, the first installment of a new young-adult film franchise has kicked off its campaign. Summit has unveiled its official 'Divergent' poster, featuring the faces of the series Shailene Woodley and Theo James.
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.' Is this the start of a new franchise? Summit sure hopes so, and this trailer has us hopeful, too.
Sutter Keely is the kind of laid-back, party-hard guy you'd love to hang out with in high school. But when the party ends, where does his life begin? 'The Spectacular Now' answers this question with heart-breaking poignancy, where even the moments of levity are motivated by a particularly sweet kind of teenage sadness.
Getting a little bored of all the big action movies this summer? Well, we've got some good news for you. One of the best films this summer - 'The Spectacular Now' - is coming to theaters this August and is refreshingly different from anything else you've seen. No robots, no superheroes, no major cities being destroyed...just a really good movie. And, we've got screenings all over the U.S. for you to see the film for free.
With Comic-Con 2013 officially in full swing, news about some of the most anticipated films on the horizon has stopped trickling and started gushing.

A new batch of stills from the hotly anticipated adaptation of the popular young adult series has arrived, giving us a new look at stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and more!
