Thoughts on the Insurgent Trailer

I know, I know. Once again, I am late to hop on the trailer-reaction-and-thoughts game, but I decided to post my Insurgent trailer thoughts anyway.

So… Umm… Yeah…

I really don’t know what to say about this trailer. Sure, it looks alright as a movie. Like, if it wasn’t a YA book series, it would be interesting to watch—not sure I’d go see it in theaters if it wasn’t though. But to be a movie based on a book series, this is just strange.

I’m not a huge fan of the Divergent series. There’s too much hype surrounding it now and it’s been years since I read the first book—and after Allegiant’s ending, I’m kind of over the whole thing. So when I started watching the trailer, I thought I had just forgotten everything because I didn’t remember half of the stuff that showed up, but apparently a lot of other people who viewed the trailer on Youtube had the same problem as well.

I honestly don’t know what to think about the monumental changes happening for this movie. Veronica Roth had input in the film, so if she seemed okay with the changes, maybe it won’t be completely irrelevant to the plot. But then again, maybe these changes mean they’re willing to completely change the storyline of Allegiant. And if so I’m all for that, simply because that book was AWFUL. Plus, Insurgent had a second-book-syndrome thing going on. It was nothing more than a filler book, so maybe the writers had to bring together a more action-packed story.

Those are my brief thoughts on the Insurgent trailer. Comment below to share your thoughts!
