Just earlier, the first trailer for new, forthcoming YA film The 5th Wave released (you can watch it here) but, in other related news, the teaser trailer for another little young-adult film has arrived, this time for part 1 of the 2 part finale to The Divergent Series, with Allegiant.

The first film in the franchise, last year, was pretty decent, although the recent sequel - Insurgent - wasn't quite as good and was rather forgettable. Considering the trilogy of novels that the films are based on is one of the better teen series' out there in my opinion, it was rather disappointing. Here's to hoping that they get back on track for the last two films though, as the final book (which will be split in two, of course) is the best in the franchise. The difference with the adaptions though is that rather than carry around the Part 1 and Part 2 subtitles, this Divergent film will be titled Allegiant (duh!) but the very last picture has been renamed Ascent, which is rather interesting.

This evening, Lionsgate have debuted a short teaser trailer for the forthcoming The Divergent Series: Allegiant and the first 50 seconds or so just cover familiar ground, recapping the events of the prior two instalments but we do get a small look at the penultimate chapter afterwards and it isn't too bad. The film will see Tris, Four and their friends head out past the walls of which they've spent their life behind in a search for help and solutions to bring their crumbling society and city. From the very brief tease we do get, the film looks action-packed, intense and just generally good. I wouldn't go as far as saying it's great but there's certainly promise; it's a better teaser than the one we got for its predecessor, for sure... that was just weird.

Here's the film's official synopsis:

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 in order to find a peaceful solution for their embroiled city. 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.

With Robert Schwentke returning to the helm, and starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, ZoĆ« Kravitz, Naomi Watts and Jeff Daniels, The Divergent Series: Allegiant opens on Match 16th, 2016.
