Anticipation continues to build for the upcoming film release of the young adult novel “Divergent”. Based on the bestselling novel by Veronica Roth, the new YA novel adaption looks to become the next big thing since “The Hunger Games”. As the release of the film draws near, Summit entertainment has announced a nationwide tour of the US to help promote the film. The tour will take place in 14 cities across the country and consist of red carpet appearances, offer a chance to see the film before the public, and an exclusive Q&A session with members of the cast. Some of the cities include Atlanta, Orlando, Chicago (which is actually the setting of both the book and the movie), Dallas, and Detroit.
In addition to those cities, each one will feature stars from the movie. Stars such as Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, and even the author of the book Veronica Roth are all scheduled to make apperances at the listed cites. This gives fans the chance to get up close and personal with the stars of the film before its March 21st opening weekend.
The start of the tour is set to commence on March 3rd with the cities of Atlanta, Orlando, Washington DC, and Denver being the first stops. Atlanta will feature apperances by Shailene Woodley and Theo James, author Veronica Roth and Ansel Elgort set to appear in Orlando, Maggie Q and Mekhi Phifer in Washington DC, and Ben Lloyd-Hughes & Christian Madsen stopping in Denver. With eyes and pressure on this young adult blockbuster hopeful, Summit Entertainment is putting all their cards in the deck to make sure it is has the best chance to be the mega hit their hoping for.
