Divergent looks a whole lot like The Hunger Games in 1st trailer

It’s official: The Hunger Games will definitely have some competition in the sexy young sci-fi genre next year.

The first trailer for Divergent has debuted via MTV, showing the lovely Shailene Woodley making her way through a dangerous, dystopian future. Her surrounding cast? A bunch of equally young and good-looking folks.

Sound familiar? It should, because the trailer looks to hit all the same notes as The Hunger Games. It even matches up the visual style (while adding a bit more of a sci-fi bent). The story follows a teen girl (Woodley) who doesn’t fit into society’s established groups, which makes her a fugitive.

The subject matter — finding your individuality, conformity, being extremely good-looking — should appeal to the fan base, and it definitely looks like it could be a fun romp.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
