If you are a fan of Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy, then you’ll be excited to grab the Blu-ray/DVD release of The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015, Lionsgate Home Entertainment) available today. In the meantime, as a special exclusive that you will only see here at Bleeding Cool, here is a sneak peek still from behind-the-scenes on the set of Insurgent with Shailene Woodley as Beatrice “Tris” Prior held in chokehold.
Directed by Robert Schwentke (The Time Traveler’s Wife, Red), Insurgent is the second installment that released in theatres back in March and did quite well at the box office. Woodley is joined by Theo James (Tobias “Four” Eaton), Miles Teller (Peter Hayes), and Ansel Elgort (Caleb Prior) as well as Kate Winslet (Jeanine Matthews), Jai Courtney (Eric Coulter), Naomi Watts (Evelyn Johnson-Eaton), and Ashley Judd (Natalie Prior).
Shooting for The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Part 1 began in late May in Atlanta, Georgia. Schwentkle will return as director and is scheduled for release next March.
