The climax of “Divergent” that saw the young divergent Tris (Shailene Woodley) escape with her life after a face-off with the manipulative leader of the Erudites (Kate Winslet) may have been anti-climatic but that won’t keep a good YA series from marching on. Realizing there is more to her story in this post-apocalyptic Chicago, in Insurgent, Tris bands with the factionless (and her romantic interest and fellow divergent played by Theo James) to get bring down the power elite. What she doesn’t realize is she may the key to giving even more power to the controlling Erudite faction. The trailer checks off most of what to expect from a movie like this — another showdown (which offers more pyrotechnics), familial and friend re-connections and of course burgeoning love. Summit Entertainment invites you to see the drama unfold for yourself above.
Insurgent stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Theo James, Zoë Kravitz, Maggie Q and Ray Stevenson.
Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
Insurgent rises up to US and UK theaters on March 20, 2015.
