The Teaser Trailer for THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT Just Makes Me Miss Ashley Judd's Character Even More

As I've mentioned before, I think Ashley Judd's brief performance as Tris's mom in Divergent was the most compelling in the whole lackluster film. I had actually wished the story focused on her, or at least gave us a little more insight into her character. But alas, she perished in Divergent, leaving us to assume that we would never see her again. We were wrong (kinda).

With today's teaser trailer for THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT, we actually learn three important things: 1) Tris is reliving her mother's death subconsciously, which means Judd may get more screen time 2) Judd deserves a serious comeback, and 3) Woodley doesn't look half bad with a cropped blonde 'do. (The clip is only a minute long, so there isn't much else to say about it).

I'm presuming Tris uses her mother's death push her toward her own strength (or something). Once again, here's the synopsis of the film:

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.
