Insurgent is the second film in the Divergent series, and follows Tris as she copes with and moves on from the devastating, life-changing events of the first movie.
Of course, none of those events are really mentioned in this teaser, which instead opts to take us on a brief -- yet thrilling -- adventure involving Tris desperately hanging on to the side of her floating, burning home as it soars through the air, crashing into abandoned sky scrapers, while she also tries to rescue her dead mom from an inferno.
And then the trailer cuts right to the film's title screen, as to avoid giving any sort of context that would explain a single frame of the fever dream you just watched.
While that sounds critical, it's not. One of the best trailers of all time was for the 1980 horror classic The Shining, and all it featured was the legendary slow-motion shot of a tidal wave of blood pouring out from an old-timey elevator as its doors opened.
While this Insurgent trailer does give us a little bit more of a window into the film, it's still a strange, disconcerting minute of fire, jumping, action, bombastic music, post-apocalyptic settings and surrealism. Truly a teaser in the best sense of the word.
