The Divergent Series: Allegiant (also known simply as Allegiant, as credited onscreen) is a 2016 American science fiction adventure film directed by Robert Schwentke with a screenplay by Stephen Chbosky, Bill Collage, Adam Cooper, and Noah Oppenheim. It is the first of two cinematic parts based on the novel Allegiant, the final book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, and the third installment in The Divergent Series, produced by Lucy Fisher, Pouya Shabazian, and Douglas Wick.
The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jeff Daniels, Octavia Spencer,Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Bill Skarsgård, and Naomi Watts. It is the sequel to Insurgent and will be followed by the concluding entry, Ascendant (Allegiant and Ascendant were originally to be titled Allegiant – Part 1 and Allegiant – Part 2).
Allegiant was released on March 18, 2016 in theaters and IMAX and was panned by critics. The film also was a box office bomb, grossing $66.2 million domestically and $110.7 million in foreign markets. This led to budget cuts on the fourth and final installment in the series, Ascendant, set to be released on June 9, 2017.
