The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) – Teaser Trailer

This trailer left me more confused than anything

I shouldn’t moan too much about a teaser trailer but I have a couple of things to nit pick.  The first is that this teaser is a bit of a cheat – the first chunk is a recap of the first two films.  The second thing that bugged me was that I was left confused.  My memory of The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015) was that at the end the movie the city gates opened wide and the populace were getting ready to leave en mass.  Given this, why do we see Tris and Four leading a band up and over the city walls armed with guns?  Presumably something must happen and will be explained early in the film but it’s not a promising start.  We get a few scenes beyond the walls and a first look at the wider human community.  One final thing … how did Tris’s hair grow that fast?  How much time has passed?  Odd.

If you’re familiar with the books you probably already know the answers to my questions.  Please watch the trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments below.

    I liked Divergent, filled with tropes though it was.
    I liked Insurgent more than the majority, directionless as heck though it was.
    But Allegiant? I feel as though this will be the movie I pat on the back and say, “Well . . . this has been a good time, but I think I’ll just leave now if that’s okay with you?”

    Back away slowly. Back away slowly.
