Now comes Allegiant – third in the series and part one of the two-part elongation of the third book in the YA trilogy. Although it introduces a new villain – and suggests that, like in The Hunger Games: Mockingbird Part 2, a once apparently decent character gives in to the temptation of power – the whole thing feels like it never really goes anywhere.

The Martian will be in theaters on October 2nd. Meet the crew of the Ares Mission following the jump – then check out the first full-length trailer!
