Comic-Con attendees get first look at 'Divergent'


SAN DIEGO (AP) — Fans at Comic-Con got the very first look at footage from the highly anticipated new film "Divergent."

Director Neil Burger said Thursday shooting wrapped just two days ago in Chicago, "so it's very fresh for all of us" before playing the two-minute clip for about 7,000 attendees at the Summit Entertainment panel.

The movie is based on the first novel of the same title in a trilogy by author Veronica Roth. It follows 16-year-old Triss as she tries to choose what direction her life will take in a dystopian near future.

The clip shows star Shailene Woodley jumping from a moving train onto a roof, crowd surfing in a cafeteria and climbing a ferris wheel. There also are a few electric moments between Woodley and fellow star Theo James.

The film will be released in March.
