“In Divergent we created a world, and in Insurgent we’re going to tear it up,” producer Douglas Wick says in this new featurette promoting the upcoming release.
The sequel to Divergent meets up with Shailene Woodley’s Tris as she searches for allies and answers while on the run with Four (Theo James).
The “sneak peak” promo below offers a decent amount of footage from the film, including some behind-the-scenes action, and sees the cast and crew talking about how the stakes are well and truly raised this time. If you were a fan of the original film, you’ve no doubt already made up your mind about wanting to see the follow-up.
Insurgent, also known as The Divergent Series: Insurgent, also stars Octavia Spencer, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet and Ashley Judd.
