The resemblance between the two movies is clear to anyone looking.

Based on the 2011 best seller of the same name, Divergent the movie officially hit theaters worldwide on March 21st. American author Veronica Roth finished publishing the trilogy in 2012, and in 2013 the rights for the movie were purchased by Summit Entertainment. Even from the book stage, the story has been compared to The Hunger Games, because of the similar theme and target audience. But now that movie is out, the similarities keep growing. Actress Shailene Woodley could easily play Jennifer Lawrence‘s sister, and she’s even cut her hair short since the filming! “I love being thought of as a symbol of female empowerment at the age of 22 — that young girls are going to see me as that,” the actress revealed after a screening.

While Shailene Woodley and Theo James said they were amazed by how well the movie was received in Atlanta, and how many frenzied fans were already there, the big surprise came at the LA premiere. Nikita Actress Maggie Q stole the show in a fitted bodycon dress with lateral cutouts, which showed she wasn’t wearing any underwear. Meanwhile, Shailene’s gold thigh slit, one shouldered Elie Saab dress went almost unnoticed. Not the same can be said about co-star Kate Winslet, who stunned in a beautiful red gown.
