The Final ‘Insurgent’ Poster Has Shailene Woodley Going Full Action Hero
The latest poster for ‘Insurgent’ continues the trend we’ve seen throughout the all of the film’s marketing: showcase Shailene Woodley and a lot of broken glass and the kids will come. Oh, yeah. And Theo James, too. But c’mon, who really cares about that guy when you have the star of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ doing her best Chow Yun-Fat impression?
Although ‘Divergent’ didn’t slam into pop culture with the force of a freight train like ‘The Hunger Games,’ it did gently collide with pop culture like a distracted bicyclist running over a pedestrian. It won’t have the same lasting impact as that other big dystopian YA adaptation, but we’ll remember Woodley’s confident work as an action heroine. Although ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ (the full, ugh-worthy title) has a new director and a bigger budget than its predecessor, everyone seems to know the truth: Woodley is far more important to this series’ success than anything else. Well, her and tons of broken glass.
Like with the first film, Woodley is backed up by a strong supporting cast, including Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Ray Stevenson, Naomi Watts and Miles Teller. And since this is a movie being released in the year 2015, it also includes the ever-inexplicable presence of Jai Courtney.
‘Insurgent’ arrives in theaters on March 20.
