As fans will already know. We will be seeing a sequel to ‘Divergent’ come out at some point in 2015.
And we will get to see a little of what the second film, which is titled ‘Insurgent’ will have to offer us in the first trailer for it, which will debut along with the third ‘Hunger Games’ movie ‘ Hunger Games: Mockingjay’.
Insurgent, starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet, is currently filming in Atlanta and Chicago for release in March 2015.
The first movie ‘Divergent’ proved to be a pretty solid performer at the box office and surprised a few people myself included at how damn good it was. In fact I had a conversation with my 12 year old niece last weekend and she prefers ‘Divergent’ to the ‘Hunger Games,’ which is a pretty bold statement given that ‘Hunger Games’ seems to have had a lot of the momentum with the teen audience.
Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer revealed details on the trailer break during the company’s fiscal 2015 first-quarter earnings conference.
“With the first Insurgent trailer slated to debut with the release of Mockingjay in November, skyrocketing book sales, a stellar home entertainment launch and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Ansel Elgort generating ever-increasing online buzz, I think you can understand why we believe that the Divergent series is becoming very special,” he said.
Insurgent‘s predecessor ‘Divergent’ opened earlier this year and earned more than $270 million at the worldwide box office.
‘Allegiant,’ the final book in Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy, will be adapted into two movies and released in March 2016 and March 2017.
It has been suggested that the studio could make further ‘Divergent’ films after ‘Allegiant,’ citing Roth’s e-Book short stories ‘Four: A Divergent Collection’ as source material for potential movies.
