17 'Insurgent' Quotes We Need To See In The Film, Because The Fight Is Far From Over
The second film installment in the Divergent series, Insurgent , is right around the corner. When we left off, Tris and Four had escaped the clutches of Jeanine Matthews and her attempt at turning all of humanity into robots, but the fight is far from over. Tris' parents are dead, Four (real name Tobias)'s dad could be a new villain, and the system of factions has all but crumbled. In Insurgent, the journey continues on the big screen, with Shailene Woodley, British heartthrob Theo James, Whiplash's Miles Teller, The Fault in Our Stars Ansel Elgort, and the one and only Kate Winselt all back for the fun.
But before the film hit theatres, the story of Beatrice Prior and her divergence came from the mind of 25-year-old author Veronica Roth. A young author who just secured her next series, an unnamed set of books from HarperCollins "in the vein of Star Wars" that focuses on a boy's unlikely alliance with an enemy. While we wait for those books — the first will debut in 2017 — let's take a look back at some of the best quotes from Insurgent we need to see the in the adaptation in theatres March 20.
