6 "Divergent" and "Hunger Games" Trailer Scenes That Make Them Look Like the Same Movie

Yesterday, Summit Entertainment unveiled the official poster for the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's best-selling young adult book series Divergent (out March 21, 2014). In addition to showing stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James perched atop a Chicago skyline, it displays the tagline for the Neil Burger film: "What makes you different makes you dangerous." Not to be confused with the Backstreet Boys' much more sentimental take, "What Makes You Different (Makes You Beautiful)".  

But that's not the only thing that Divergent can be confused with. Today, the first full-length trailer of the movie premiered on YouTube, and it looks eerily similar to the first Hunger Games spot. It was to be expected, after all. Both are about a strong young girl who fights against an authoritarian leader controlling their divided society.

After comparing the two videos, it turned out they're much more alike than you'd think. Here are 6 Divergent and Hunger Games trailer scenes that make them look like the same movie. (Of course, that's not to say we're not excited to see Woodley kick some ass.)
