The Divergent Series: Insurgent on DVD August 4th
Shailene Woodley (The Fault in Our Stars, The Descendants) and Theo James (Underworld: Awakening) pack a powerful one-two punch in the blockbuster action-adventure, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, arriving on Digital HD July 21 and on 3-D Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD), Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand August 4 from Lionsgate’s (NYSE: LGF) Summit Entertainment label.
Based on Veronica Roth’s #1 New York Times best-selling novel Insurgent, The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris (Woodley) as she searches for answers and allies in this star-powered, action-packed second installment of the Divergent series. On the run and targeted by ruthless faction leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet), Tris fights to protect the people she loves, facing one impossible challenge after another as she and Four (James) race to unlock the truth about the past—and ultimately the future—of their world.
Joining Woodley and James, The Divergent Series: Insurgent features a superb ensemble cast including Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer (Best Supporting Actress, The Help, 2011), Jai Courtney (upcoming Terminator: Genesis, A Good Day to Die Hard), Ray Stevenson (Thor), Zoё Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road), Miles Teller (The Fantastic Four, Whiplash), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars, Carrie), Maggie Q (TV’s “Nikita,” “Stalker”), Mekhi Phifer (Showtime’s “House of Lies”), Daniel Dae Kim (TV’s “Hawaii Five-O,” “Lost”) and Ashley Judd (Double Jeopardy), with Naomi Watts (Summit Entertainment’s The Impossible, King Kong) and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet (Best Actress, The Reader, 2008; Titanic). The film is directed by cinematic mastermind Robert Schwentke (RED) and written for the screen by Brian Duffield and Akiva Goldsman and Mark Bomback. The first two Divergent films have grossed more than $550 million at the worldwide box office.
