Once again, a bleak future awaits beautiful young people in the upcoming dystopian, YA franchise sequel “Insurgent.” The followup to the decent sized hit “Divergent,” this will continue the adventures of the young Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), as they fight for freedom or something. Clearly, I don’t know the full details of this world, so just check out the full 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 (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.
Alright. With that big of a background, here’s the new, imaginatively titled “Fight Back” trailer, along with a couple of TV spots. Are you excited for the sequel? If you didn’t see the first movie, do you feel any need to catch up with this series?
Also featuring Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Daniel Dae Kim, with Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet, “Insurgent” arrives on March 20th.
