ATLANTA-- The screams of hundreds of teenage girls echoed above the cell phones held overhead when the cast of Divergent arrived at the Regal Atlanta Station for the Atlanta premier Monday.
The movie, based on the novels by Veronica Roth, hits theaters nationwide March 21. 11Alive's Julie Wolfe watched the first screening of the film and sat down with main actors Shailene Woodley and Theo James.
Roth was in her freshman year in college in 2006 when she came up with the idea for Divergent. "I had this inkling about a subculture of people who wanted to eradicate fear in normal individuals, to create people without phobias," she said. The future world is divided into five factions based on human virtues in an effort to overcome human nature and avoid war.
