As promised, the full trailer for the Divergent sequel, Insurgent has arrived, and it's overflowing with action. Check it out...
Anyone else getting a major Matrix flashback? Between talk of "the one" and the fear landscapes, not to mention the sight of Shailene Woodley's Tris being plugged in...
...I can't help but see a few similarities. I guess that makes Kate Winslet's Jeanine a combination of Morpheus and Agent Smith?
But let's get back on topic. Insurgent hits theaters this March and will bring us back into Veronica Roth's dystopian universe. It's at this point that if you haven't seen Divergent yet (or read the book), you want to stop reading, as we're about to delve into spoiler territory!
The first film left off with Tris and her fellow Dauntless/Divergent Four (Theo James) on the run after the Erudites attempted a massive takeover.
What's in the box?!!
According to Jeanine, the box is tied to "the future our people deserve." And Ansel Elgort's Caleb reveals that Jeanine is testing it on Divergents. We know that would include Tris and Four, who were exposed as divergents at the end of Divergent when Jeanine's brainwash serum didn't work on them.
Beyond the box, we get a glimpse of Tris and Four's efforts to communicate with the factionless, as well as plenty of conflict, including this epic traintrack jump...
Running and jumping onto a train is so 2014. Apparently, Four's up for a full-on leap across the tracks, missing an oncoming train by inches. They don't call them Dauntless for nothing, I guess.
The trailer also gives us glimpses of Jai Courtney's Eric and Miles Teller's Peter. And we saw some peeks of the scene with Tris and her mother, which was featured in the previously released teaser.
And then there's Tris being plugged in and forced to fight herself. The trailer kind of spoils us on where that ends up, as we see Tris break through the glass and launch herself at Jeanine.
Admittedly, it's been a while since I read the book, but either I don't remember some of what's featured in the trailer happening in the book, or I pictured it differently. Are we in for big changes from the book to the screen? Or does this look like how you thought it would? Feel free to sound off in the comments!
In the meantime, it's great to see Tris with her short hair. Woodley chopped the locks for The Fault in our Stars, which was just as well, as Tris gives herself a major haircut in Insurgent anyway.
