Insurgent is here

On March 19, 2015

Veronica Roth’s Divergent series has sold over 32 million copies. With a huge fan base the first film Divergent created a cult following. Insurgent, which picks up three days after the end of Divergent, hits screens today.

After being exposed as Divergents (people who don’t fit into one of the five factions), Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) find themselves on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the power-hungry leader of the Erudite faction. As the traitorous Dauntless troops under Jeanine’s command prowl the ruins of dystopian Chicago rounding up Divergents, Tris and Four traverse the city hoping to find allies among the Amity (peaceful faction), Candor (honest faction), Abnegation (selfless faction) and Dauntless (brave faction) as well as the rebellious and impoverished mass of Factionless.

Although guilt-ridden over the violent deaths of her family and friends, Tris tries to uncover the secret her parents sacrificed their lives to protect – the very secret that explains why Jeanine will stop at nothing to capture her. Desperate to avoid causing pain to any more of her loved ones, Tris faces her darkest fears in a series of near impossible challenges as she seeks to unlock the truth about the past, and ultimately the future, of their world.

Insurgent is out in cinemas across Australia today.
