Summit Entertainment has released a new theatrical trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series. The Divergent sequel finds the principal characters on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it. To be honest, I have no earthly idea what the hell is going in in this Insurgent trailer, but this new installment does have come compelling visuals and interesting concepts at play. Though this is the most stiff I have ever seen the normally vibrant Winslet.
Watch the new Insurgent trailer, check out a new poster, and new images for the film after the jump. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz. The Divergent Series: Insurgent opens on March 20, 2015.
