Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

Advance tickets for “Divergent” will go on sale Tuesday, March 4  at noon.
 
Moviegoers who buy such tickets before March 21 on Fandango or MovieTickets.com can be entered in a sweepstakes for a chance to win a walk-on role in the sequel, “Insurgent.” If you buy a ticket on March 4 only, you can receive a free download of the book “Divergent” (while supplies last).
 
The movie, starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James, will be released in theaters and IMAX on March 21. It’s set in a future world where people are divided into five factions based on human virtues but Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she doesn’t neatly fit into one group and is Divergent, a fact that could get her killed. 
 
Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn play her parents and Ansel Elgort — who was in Pittsburgh with Woodley filming “The Fault in Our Stars” last fall — is her brother. 
 
The “Divergent” book series was written by Veronica Roth and has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. “Insurgent,” a sequel to “Divergent,” will be released March 20, 2015. 
 
The cast also includes Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, and Kate Winslet. Neil Burger directs a screenplay by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor.
