Cape Town - The third installment of the blockbuster Divergent series franchise, Allegiant, comes to the big screen across South Africa in 2D and amazing IMAX 3D on 18 March – and you can see it first!

Allegiant takes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) into a new world, far more dangerous than ever before.

After the earth-shattering revelations of Insurgent, Tris must escape with Four and go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago. For the first time ever, they will leave the only city and family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless with the revelation of shocking new truths.

Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.

"After two hit movies, we’ve seen a lot of Chicago and spent time with all the different factions, so we believed the filmmakers, the audience and the actors were all ready to go to a different world," says producer Doug Wick.

"Cinematically and story-wise, it feels great to go over the wall for some answers: What’s outside the city? Why do the factions exist? Who’s behind it all? What does being Divergent truly mean?"

Theo James, whose portrayal of Four in the first two films has made him a worldwide heartthrob, enjoyed seeing his and Shailene Woodley’s characters tested in a challenging new environment.

"Tris and Four have endured so much together, fighting and losing people they care about," says James.

"They feel like there must be something better beyond the wall, and they’re both keen to discover something new. Also, they want answers to the riddle that’s at the heart of the book series and the movies: What happened to the planet and why?"

Back in Chicago, tensions grow as Evelyn (two-time Academy Award-nominee Naomi Watts) institutes a bloody reign of terror by executing followers of her slain enemy Jeanine (Kate Winslet).

"Naomi is physically petite but has a commanding presence and gives Evelyn this inner strength,” says producer Wick. “But what’s really interesting is you’re not sure if she’s a good guy or a bad guy at any given moment."
