With The Divergent Series: Insurgent arriving in theaters March 20th, Summit Entertainment has given us an exclusive new clip from the adaptation of the second book in Veronica Roth‘s popular series. The clips features Tris (Shailene Woodley), Four (Theo James), Caleb (Ansel Elgort), and Peter (Miles Teller) enjoying a moment of respite from the war-torn factions of their dystopian society inside the peaceful walls of Amity.
It seems all is not forgiven between the fugitive group, however, as Peter continues to instigate conflict and Four is appropriately protective of Tris. Of course, since it’s Miles Teller, you can’t help but be a little charmed and entertained by the would-be murderer.
With most of the film’s promotional materials thus far centered on the high-stakes action elements of the film, it’s nice to get a look at a quieter character moment and see how the group is holding up after the tragic events of Divergent.
Insurgent picks up where the first film left off, with Tris and co. on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the power-hungry leader Erudite elite (who we last saw trying to enact a small genocide). With the future of their entire society at stake, they must survive impossible challenges as they try to learn the learn the secrets Tris’ family sacrificed their lives to protect.
Pre-sale tickets are available for Insurgent beginning February 25th. Directed by Robert Schwentke (Red), the film also stars Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Mekhi Phifer, Suki Waterhouse, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, Keiynan Lonsdale, and Johnny Weston.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Divergent Series: Insurgent.
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.
