In Allegiant our heros will finally leave their walled up remnants of Chicago to find out what's on the other side of the wall. The world on the other side is significantly different from the one they are accustomed to living in. It gives the new movie a very different look than its predecessors. The trailer shifts from dystopia to a fairly hardcore science fiction look.Of course, finding out the truth is not the same thing as finding safety. It turns out the world they have entered is actually even more dangerous than the one they left, in fact Chicago was designed to be a safe haven for people in the world. Now it appears that the experiment is being terminated and now all the people left back in Chicago are in danger.

While Allegiant shares it’s title with the final book of the Divergent series don’t let the name fool you. This is actually only "part one" of the final book. As with every other young adult book series that’s been mined for a movie franchise in recent years the last book is being split into two movies, however, rather than simply putting a part one and part two in the title, they have chosen to give the fourth film an original title, Ascendent.

The Divergent films follow Shailene Woodley as Tris, a woman who grows up in a society that divides it’s citizens up by character traits. Tris is considered divergent because she embodies several of these traits at the same time. Since these people upset the balance of the society they do not find a place. Allegiant will delve more into where this society came from and why it exists. The will also co-stars, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, and Theo James.

The first two films in the series were solid box office successes and this one willlikely be no different. Are you excited for the next chapter in the Divergent series?
