'Insurgent' trailer shows protagonist Tris on the run

'Insurgent' is based off Veronica Roth's 'Divergent' young adult series, which follows Tris, a young girl whose abilities make her dangerous to the government.

A new trailer has arrived for the film “Insurgent,” which is based off the second book in  Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” YA dystopian trilogy.

“Insurgent” stars “The Fault in Our Stars” actress Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior, who lives in a dystopian Chicago where citizens are divided into factions based on character traits. When she takes her test to determine to which faction she belongs, she discovers she is “divergent” and could belong to more than one, which is considered dangerous by the authorities.

(Spoilers follow for “Divergent”…)

Following the events of the last film, Tris and her instructor and love interest, Four (Theo James) are on the run from forces led by Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet), who heads up the Erudite faction. The beginning of the trailer shows a strange box. Jeanine seems to think something important is inside.

“She’s testing Divergents,” Tris’s brother Caleb (“Fault” actor Ansel Elgort) tells her. “Searching for the one who can open it.” 

Meanwhile, Four thinks they need to do something about the forces tracking them down. 

“It’s time we fight back,” he says.

Later, Tris herself becomes the subject of tests.

“You’re going to fight you,” Jeanine tells her. 

“Insurgent” will come to theaters on March 20. Check out the full trailer.
