[krvod url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ql1T41Jw5U]Last summer’s Divergent was just the first in a series of films based on the popular young adult books by Veronica Roth. In this new teaser for Summit Entertainment’s The Divergent Series: Insurgent, we’re dropped into a post-apocalyptic landscape with Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley), who is suddenly thrust into a seemingly impossible sequence of surreal events as she tries to save her mother, played by Ashley Judd. We can’t tell much of anything about the plot from this short clip (good thing we’ve already read the books!), but there’s plenty of action and the surreal situation points to a much deeper, and threatening, reality.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent also stars Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Miles Teller, Octavia Spencer and Mekhi Phifer, and is due to open March 20, 2015. There are two more movies on the way, based on Allegiant, the second book in the Roth series.  They’ll be filmed simultaneously and released on the same March weekend in 2016 and 2017.
