It's only 20 seconds, but we'll take it!
MTV has released a teaser of Shailene Woodley's new movie "Divergent" ahead of the full trailer's unveiling during Sunday's Video Music Awards.
The clip is super-short, but it fits in the essentials. In the futuristic Chicago author Veronica Roth has created, Woodley's Tris Prior is "difficult" and can't be controlled - she doesn't fit into any of the five groups people are placed in based on their personalities.
That means she's "divergent," and if she wants to live, she'll have to follow the instructions of the brusque Four, played by Theo James.
Throw in a few tightly paced scenes and a daring leap, and you have our attention.
The full first look will arrive during the VMAs pre-show, which starts at 8 p.m. on Sunday.
"Divergent" arrives in theaters on March 21, 2014.
