On September 15, 2015, the first teaser trailer for upcoming 2016 American science fiction adventure film “The Divergent Series: Allegiant”, the first of two cinematic parts based on the novel “Allegiant” which was the final book in the “Divergent” trilogy by author Veronica Roth, came out. Yesterday, full theatrical trailer was released in the UK and is now here for you in US to enjoy.
To explain the title, “The Divergent Series: Allegiant”, while being the third installment in the “Divergent” film series, is only the first half of the adaptation of the final “Divergent” book “Allegiant”. However, the reason it isn’t labeled “Part 1” is because the second part will instead be called “The Divergent Series: Ascendant”. In doing so, this most recent of Young Adult novel adaptations seems to want to separate itself from other conclusion stories to YA adaptations such as “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2”, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2”.
The synopsis is as follows:
After the earth-shattering revelations of “The Divergent Series: Insurgent”, Tris (Played by Shailene Woodley) must escape with Four (Played by Theo James) and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known in order to find a peaceful solution for their embroiled city. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.
“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” is scheduled to be released March 18, 2016.
