IMAX’s Fanfix 2014: Divergent gets an Inspired Poster

6 Mar

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Perhaps both the filmmakers and IMAX are being selective in what films will get the FanFix upgrade. This program is designed to give the hard-core fans a treat for being first in line for certain movies, and the 2014 year begins with a gorgeously 70’s deco inspired print (almost ala The Matrix meets Pink Floyd) by artist Victo Ngai for the movie Divergent.

This talented illustrator from Hong Kong is based out of New York and she has done works for clients like The New Yorker, The New York Times, Leo Burnett, McDonald’s, WIRED, Plansponsor, International Herald Tribune, The Progressive, Tor Books and many more. Her work has been in shows in New York, Los Angeles, London, Germany, Australia, China and can be purchased from galleries/stores including the Victoria and Albert Museum Shop.

But for people curious about the books that this movie is based on, including this author, the official synopsis is as follows:

“In a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.”

Divergent releases Thursday, March 20th.
