Summit Entertainment has unveiled the first trailer for the laughably titled The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second installment of its Divergent franchise.

Judging by a minute-long teaser below it already looks like it has a bigger budget than the first film. The sci-fi sequel, staring Shailene Woodley as a pixie-haired Tris, follows up on the events of this year’s Divergent with Theo James, Kate Winslet, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller and Maggie Q also returning to reprise their roles.

The Divergent Series: Insurgent, based on the second book in Veronica Roth’s hit series of YA novels, is directed by Robert Schwentke (RED) and penned by Brian Duffield (Jane Got a Gun) and Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend).

Insurgent arrives on March 20, 2015.

Hit the jump to check out the first appetizing teaser.

It appears to be a nightmare scene since Tris’ mom is dead. Yeah, it really doesn’t offer a huge insight into the storyline of the film. Teen movies like these were cool when I was a teen….Oh, let’s not overlook that it stars Mr. Fantastic himself, Teller, too.

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.
