The Divergent Series: Insurgent - Tris Gets Ready to Sacrifice Herself in First Clip

The first clip for The Divergent Series: Insurgent has just been released, and after all the weird, action-heavy trailers we've seen so far, it's somewhat refreshing to see two characters actually have a conversation:

 

 

The dialogue is a little trite, with Tris making a "promise" to Four not to sacrifice herself for the greater good, a promise we all know she won't keep. But Shailene Woodley's ability to pull off even the most hackneyed lines is on display here, as well as her chemistry with Theo James. The promotional materials would do well to focus more on this love story, in my opinion, because the mythology of this series is pretty derivative, and the chemistry between the love interests is the main draw of Divergent over the Hunger Games, which has more sophisticated worldbuilding but an entirely unbelievable love triangle subplot.

 

The Divergent Series: Insurgent is set to be released on March 20.
