The Divergent Series: Insurgent Reveals First Still, Sets Trailer for Next Friday



It’s a busy day for news surrounding Lionsgate’s big screen adaptations of Veronica Roth’s bestselling Divergent books. First, the studio revealed that the full trailer for the next film, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, will arrive next Friday, December 12. In advance of the occasion, the studio had released the first still from the March 20, 2015 release. Check it out below and come back in one week for the trailer.

Meanwhile, Variety reports that Insurgent helmer Robert Schwentke has signed on to also helm the third big screen chapter, Allegiant, Part 1, which is set to hit theaters March 18, 2016.

Divergent, which hit theaters earlier this year and is now available on a variety of home media formats, is set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four (Theo James) and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.

Again set to star Woodley, James and Winslet, Insurgent‘s cast also includes Octavia Spencer, Suki Waterhouse, Jonny Weston, Naomi Watts, Rosa Salazar and Keiynan Lonsdale and is set to continue the journey of Tris as war now looms. Sides will be chosen, secrets will emerge, and Tris will risk everything as she struggles to harness her incredible power.
