The first film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” novels was one of the most popular new Hollywood franchises of 2014, grossing more than $150 million at the domestic box office. We definitely cant wait for the very much anticipated sequel INSURGENT! which is due out, March 2015.
Hollywood rising star, Shailene Woodley (The same girl in The Fault In Our Stars) reprises the role of Tris, a teen living in a dystopian future where people are divided into categories based on character attributes. Tris and her fellow “divergents,” who don’t fit into any of the categories, continue their struggle to survive as Jeanine Matthews (played by Kate Winslet) hunts them down.
A trailer was released earlier this week and showed a greater emphasis on action scenes this go-around. Fans of the trilogy (The second movie, “Insurgent,” debuts March 20, and will be followed by “Allegiant: Part I” in 2016 and “Allegiant: Part 2” in 2017) might also notice in this trailer that Tris had her Pixie cut, although the character’s hair in the book is not that short.
She (Woodley) says director Robert Schwentke granted her request to keep her naturally short hair — which she cut for her role in another young adult novel adaptation, “The Fault in Our Stars” — instead of wearing a wig.
“I think wigs always look wiggy, especially in an action movie,” Woodley told Buzzfeed. So seeing this trailer, you know what to expect. Set a reminder!
