“Divergent” – which hits theaters March 21 -- filmed in Chicago from April to July last year (I took the video above when the cast first arrived in Chicago. Sorry for the subpar editing. And while I’m at it, sorry for the scary beard). Filming took place at Navy Pier, the field at 600 S. Wells Street in the South Loop and Cinespace Chicago Film Studios on the West Side, among other places.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the film’s sequel, “Insurgent,” will film in Chicago and Atlanta. "Insurgent" is expected to arrive in theaters March 20, 2015. | Twitter @TribLuis
