The trailer, revealed on Twitter, shows Woodley and James fearlessly scaling walls, firing weapons and flying through the air as the duo venture outside the walled city of dystopian Chicago for the first time to take on the rulers of their world. Woodley’s Tris character declares, “It’s time to go beyond the wall.”
The trailer portrays Woodley and James’ Four character being faced with uncertainty as to who their allies are in cities in the middle of wastelands. “This is not the place I thought it was,” he asserts.
