I just watched the teaser trailer for the verbosely-titled The Divergence Series: Insurgent and it left me with one question. What did I just see?

The teaser opens in typical YA adaptation fashion with a teenaged girl walking around the ash and wreckage of her former home. It then ends in non-typical YA fashion with Shailene Woodley going full action hero and climbing a flying house that is engulfed in flame. Dream sequence or batsh*t awesome movie? I might have to start watching these things.

In keeping with the tradition of splitting the finale of young adult epics into two, Deadline reports that Divergent’s final book, Allegiant, will now be told across two blockbuster films. It’s a growing trend that has been employed by franchises such as Twilight, The Hunger Games, and The Hobbit which all saw big profits when they decided to bogard their stash. Lionsgate/Summit will keep the original March 18, 2016 release date with the second half of that story following nearly a year later on March 24, 2017.

Hate it or love it, this is the new normal. In the words of Krazee Eyez Killa, “four is better.” With so many box office dollars banked, it’s an avenue the studios are happy to trot down that will be around for a lon—-

Tweens rejoice! Divergent is just around the corner, which will undoubtedly cause millions of Twilight fans to squeal, then look up what “divergent” means. Happy times all around.

The clip is most notable for its use of Ellie Goulding music, with the film itself being a distant 65th in “things that are notable in this clip.”

For those just learning about this exercise in Young Adult pandering, Divergent presents a future in which citizens are divided into different factions based on personality. (Just like in real life, but, whatever. We’ll pretend that this is a radical idea.) If someone doesn’t fit nicely into one group or another, they’re labeled DISTINCT! No. That’s not right. DIVERGENT! And apparently, that’s a bad thing.

And so on. Divergency for everyone!

It seems that the Twilight series is coming to a merciful end. But the lucky corporate entity behind a big part of the Twilight cash cow is already looking for the Next Big Franchise, in the form of another series of romantic-supernatural-young-adult-thriller books. And at Summit, that next big thing is expected to be Divergent. That sound you hear is thousands of teenagers looking up the word “divergent.” Here’s what it’s all about:

“It takes place in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into factions as kids are categorized based on human traits. A teenage girl and guy rebel against the labels, which is a very dangerous thing to do.”

Maybe one of those “human traits” is “reads young adult novels like Twilight.” Anyway, Summit has purchased the film rights, so expect to be seeing a lot of shit about this sooner or later. The article also has information on the myriad other properties that Summit Entertainment is developing, including one about “teenage illusionists who are bred to battle but instead fall in love.” OK. (via Deadline)
