The Divergent Series has reached its half way mark and is now inching towards the finale. The final book of the trilogy written by Veronica Roth has been broken down into two movie scripts and we get to see the first one next year in the movie titled The Divergent Series: Allegiant. The latest trailer of the movie brings back Shailene Woodley as Tris and her gang who are seeking answers that lie outside the walls.
What’s the plot: The third movie of the series will see Tris and Four venture into the world outside of the fence where they are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare. The reason why their people had to spend almost two centuries behind the walls would be revealed, and as you might expect, there would be a sinister plot being formed somewhere that Tris has to put an end to.
Who’s in the cast: The young actors from the previous two instalments will return: Shailene Woodley as Tris, Theo James as Four, Ansel Elgort as Caleb, Miles Teller as Peter, Zoë Kravitz as Christina. We’ll also find the familiar faces of Naomi Watts and Maggie Q, while the likes of Jeff Daniels will be new on board.
Who’s directing the movie: Robert Schwentke who had taken over directing duties for Insurgent will return for Allegiant. Schwentke had done a good job with the previous movie, mixing in the suspense with some fast pace action and drama, making it a real thriller that is worth the money. The test would be to manage to keep that same kind of intensity alive when you are working on a script prepared from only half a book as is the case for The Divergent Series: Allegiant. I felt that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 dropped in its quality because of this same challenge, so let’s hope that Allegiant does not repeat that mistake.
Where to watch the trailer: Right here! The Divergent Series: Allegiant looks exciting from its early promos. If you haven’t read the books, then there are a lot of answers that you would be seeking too along with Tris. So buckle up your seat belts and enjoy!
The Divergent Series: Allegiant is scheduled to release in the USA on March 18, 2016.
