If you’re a fan of the Divergent book series and The Divergent Series movies based on those books, there’s a bit of bad news being reported.
Instead of releasing the fourth and final movie, The Divergent Series: Ascendant, as was originally planned in June of next year, Lionsgate has instead decided to move the final chapter directly to television. Part of this unexpected decision is so they can set up a future spinoff TV series.
I honestly can’t believe they are still make these movies. I thought once The Hunger Games were over and done with, they just stop making these tacky knock-off YA series movies… but alas, nope. So, in preparation for yet another one of these things, Allergent… nope Allegiant… the gang at Screen Junkies decided to rip apart part two in the somehow 4-part Divergent saga, Insurgent.
This week’s edition of Digital Wire Blu-ray Releases features news on several important upcoming home video releases, including one young adult novel adaptation, a highly acclaimed independent horror classic in the making, and an actual horror classic being granted a special Blu-ray reissue courtesy of one of the best video labels on the market.
