Fans were given a taste at the upcoming Divergent movie when Entertainment Weekly released the first look photo yesterday afternoon.
This photo shows the scene where Beatrice “Tris” Prior faces down throwing knives. In the novel, Tris takes the place of a fellow Dauntless initiate and must stand still while knives are being thrown at her head.
This particular scene is not only part of the original best-selling novel by Veronica Roth, but is also the scene in which the author chose to write it from Four’s point of view. (It has been released as “Free Four: Tobias Tells the Story.)

Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, sixteen-year-olds have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another – for the rest of their lives. Beatrice Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret she’s kept hidden, because if anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves… or it might destroy her.
