In a new Lionsgate featurette, Veronica Roth, Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and cast members discuss what fans can expect in the upcoming Insurgent film. The Divergent Series: Insurgent hits theaters on March 20, 2015.
Ever since we got the full official trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, I’ve been getting more and more excited for March 20. As I rewatch the trailer, I have so many questions about trajectory of the story. After the TODAY Show’s behind-the-scenes tour and interview with Veronica Roth, Shailene Woodley (Tris Prior), Theo James (Tobias “Four” Eaton), and Ansel Elgort (Caleb Prior), it’s pretty clear that Insurgent takes things to a whole new level of action, drama, and probably heartache too.
Earlier today, Lionsgate shared an exclusive featurette that gives us even more insight into the upcoming film. The official sneak peek includes interviews with Theo, Shailene, Ansel, and Veronica, as well as Kate Winslet (Jeanine Matthews), Octavia Spencer (Johanna Reyes), Zoë Kravitz (Christina), Mekhi Phifer (Max), and producers Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick.
The cast promises an action-packed adventure with gravity-defying visual effects, the expansion of the Factioned society, serums, simulations, and more. In addition to a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of stunts and fight scenes, we also get some new footage from the film. Watch below:
WOWSA! For me, the most impressive comment is when, at the end, Douglas Wick says that while Divergent created a world, Insurgent tears it up *SHIVERS* And we’ve already gotten an inkling of the destruction that’s to come…
I also think it’s interesting to hear Veronica and Kate talk about Jeanine and THE BOX. Even though we’ll be finding out what Erudite is doing and how Divergents fit in, I don’t think we’re going to like it. (*SPOILER* part of me still thinks this has something to do with the Edith Prior video).
Finally, I’m curious about what Evelyn’s (Naomi Watts) relationships with Four and Tris will be like. From what I remember in the books, Tris and Four have quite a few disagreements about whether Evelyn can be trusted. But since she’s building an army to stop Jeanine, maybe Evelyn is OK…?
What is your favorite part of the featurette? Did any particular new scene catch your eye?
