While the whistle blows on The Hunger Games next week one of its YA brethren is continuing apace. The third film in the film adaptation series of Veronica Roth’s books is Allegiant, the first trailer of which arrived today.

Continuing the shameless tradition of splitting the final novel into two films Allegiant will be followed by Ascendant in 2017. One thing this series has in its favour is the many questions to answer and the rich world to reveal. Plus Shailene Woodley as Tris is one of our favourite actresses currently working – so more films is good news.

The synopsis is below, but now’s the time to feast your eyes on the new trailer.

The film arrives in UK cinemas on the 10th of March 2016.


The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, ALLEGIANT takes Tris [Shailene Woodley] and Four [Theo James] into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.

After the earth-shattering revelations of INSURGENT, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.
