Summit announces “Allegiant” to be split

Today, Summit has announced that the third book in the Divergent trilogy, Allegiant, will be split into two movies.

With the success that Divergent has been seeing so far in the theaters (per Box office Mojo, it has so far brought in $139 million worldwide, $116 million of which is domestic), Summit has decided to follow suit to every other successful adaptation and split it into two movies.

Allegiant will follow suit that Warner Brothers did with the last Harry Potter book and splitting it into two movies. Other movies to have followed this trend is Breaking Dawn (last of Twilight series) and Mockingjay (the last of Hunger Games trilogy).

Fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the announcement. Some are happy about it, but most are not, especially since Allegiant was poorly received by the fans when it was released last October. Perhaps the only movie that fans were ok with the split was the Deathly Hallows. Both Breaking Dawn and Mockingjay got overall poor reception from the fans initially.

The schedule seems to follow what The Hunger Games has done with the last three movies and have one come out each year. Insurgent is set to release in March 2015 with the first part of Allegiant to come out March 2016 and the second part to come out March 2017.
