Insurgent is the follow-up to the incredible tedious Divergent which graced UK cinemas earlier this year and, like the incessant Hunger Games series, is coming out on an annual basis.
This time round, one choice can transform you, or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) must continue trying to save those she loves – and herself – while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris’ initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors.
War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable – and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships. Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
Also starring Jai Courtney, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Maggie Q, Zoë Kravitz, Ray Stevenson, Suki Waterhouse and Octavia Spencer, the time for UK cinemas to suffer a second blast of this tripe comes on March 20th 2015.
