Divergent didn’t get a great reaction from critics, but audiences disagreed, as it grossed almost $300 worldwide and proved that Lionsgate was right to put three sequels into development before the first movie opened.
Now we have the first teaser for the clumsily named The Divergent Series: Insurgent.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Kate 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.’
Robert Schwentke (Red) directs the movie, which is due out next March.
