There's no turning back in this trailer for THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT

2 min read


I have to be honest with you and say that I haven’t seen Insurgent, the second movie in the Divergent series, yet and so have no clue what is actually going to happen in the last movies. I say movies because much like The Hunger Games the final story is broken into two, just to stretch it out and capitalize on marketing and what not. I mean come on, if Peter Jackson can can fit Return of the King into a single movie than surely Director Robert Schwentke can do the same?

Either way, the road to the end has now begun with the first trailer being released. It takes more of a ‘previously in the other movies I cannot remember’ angle so probably a good start in the build up to next year’s part 1. It certainly has a Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials aesthetic feel to it which make sense as these types of movies are literally the same thing with a different lick of paint. Have a watch and see what you think.

Lots of pretty visuals and then the good/bad guy (I assume, haven’t read the novels) Jeff Daniels says ‘let’s save the world’! I don’t know about you but I just don’t trust him! Let’s hope that this installment goes down a little better with critics than the last Divergent, a movie that was drawn out far too long, according to our very own Tyrant Kervyn, and suffered from a self defense system built around the chicken dance. Cluck that!

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
