A slew of new character posters have arrived for Lionsgate/Summit's upcoming YA franchise hopeful "Divergent," starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James in the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's first novel in her bestselling trilogy. Check them out below.

Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Zoe Kravitz and Jai Courtney get their close-ups in the new one-sheets, joining the previously unveiled character posters of Woodley and James (also below).

TOH! got to scope early footage of "Divergent" at this past summer's Comic-Con, and it looks like a winner. For those of you unfamiliar with the books written by Roth while she was still in college, as a rite of passage to adulthood in this society you have a choice to make: stay in the faction you were raised in and continue see your family and friends, or choose a new one, for which you will have to pass an aptitude test to prove that you qualify. Once you're in you are committed for life; there's no going back.

Our heroine (played by Woodley) decides to leave her Selfless faction to become part of Dauntless. "Triss is a real girl who's forced to find herself," Woodley said. "She has to rise to the occasion and find the courage to help others around her as well as herself."

The footage at Comic-Con was compelling: it shows Triss facing the challenge of climbing a trellis to a subway platform, jumping onto a moving train, and leaping off into a seventh story rooftop. (The production built the train and elevated tracks, Burger said, to make it look as real as possible. "She climbed it for real.") Then she must dive into a hole below--not knowing that a net will break her fall. At the bottom is Four, played by "Golden Boy" Brit actor James. While he holds the screen, he was quite charismatic and commanding on the Comic-Con stage as well. James described himself as "old-fashioned man with a centered sense of the masculine. He's not afraid to state what he's afraid of. Everyone's afraid of something." The movie is about "choosing who you want to be."
