INSURGENT On Track For A Larger Opening Than DIVERGENT

According to industry tracking Insurgent is looking at a $57 million opening weekend. If the numbers continue as such, this opening will be bigger than Divergent, the first film adaptation in Veronica Roth’s series. Divergent made $54 million its opening weekend and went on to make $150.9 million domestically and $288.7 million worldwide.

The stronger tracking for Insurgent could be credited to the fact that Shailene Woodley is more recognizable after the success of The Fault in Our Stars.

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
