Some very exciting movie news is coming to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards!
MTV just announced that Shailene Woodley & Theo James will be introducing exclusive first look footage from their highly anticipated movie, Divergent, live from the 2013 “MTV Video Music Awards” pre-show Sunday, August 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
The highly anticipated film, directed by Neil Burger from a screenplay by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor and Burger, is based on the first book in the New York Times bestselling trilogy written by Veronica Roth. Divergent, which also stars Ashley Judd, Jai Cortney, Ray Stevenson, Zoё Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn and Kate Winslet, opens nationwide on March 21, 2014.
In a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (played by Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
Divergent cast members Theo James and Miles Teller will also sit down with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz on Saturday, August 24 from 6:30-7:00 p.m. ET for the VMA All Access livestream at the Barclays Center. VMA All Access, a newly expanded experience, will provide a beyond-the-ropes look into all the action leading up to the awards show, optimized specifically for web, mobile and tablet screens including the recently launched MTV app for iOS and Xbox.
