Like I said last week, I have yet to see Divergent but I’ve still been intrigued by the promo materials for The Divergent Series: Insurgent. The teaser was pretty mysterious and the full trailer left me confused, but in an aesthetically pleasing way. But I admire the striking imagery and this particular YA franchise’s refusal to play it safe. And this new Insurgent Super Bowl Trailer is no different. I’m still a bit lost in terms of story, but there’s no movie coming out this year, as far as I know, that looks quite like this. The tagline “She’s the One” is clearly an homage to The Matrix, and I think it’s good that we’re finally getting movies that put women on equal footing with Neo.
The Divergent Series: Insurgent is due in theaters and iMax 3D on March 20th and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Octavia Spencer, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet. Check out the Insurgent Super Bowl Trailer below.

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.
