When the first film of a franchise scores $152.5 million opening weekend like The Hunger Games, the sequel is basically a guaranteed hit. Even if the numbers do drop, it’s still bound to take big money to the bank. On the other hand, the second Divergent film, Insurgent, is going to have its work cut out for it if it’s going to match the first film’s $54.6 million start and justify the studio’s decision to stretch the final book of the trilogy into two films.
I hoped the first bit of promo material from Insurgent would be something to ease fans back into the world and possibly even pull in newcomers. However, not only does this teaser trailer feel nothing like the original film, but it’s also highly unlikely that anyone who isn’t familiar with the first film or the books will have any idea of what’s going on. Hit the jump to check out the Divergent Series: Insurgent trailer for yourself. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Naomi Watts, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz, Daniel Dae Kim, and Suki Waterhouse. The Divergent Series: Insurgent opens in theaters on March 20, 2015.
