    This is kind of pointless without the ending.

    I would argue that the series is pointless regardless.

    yes. There were 3 books but they split the last book into 2 movies because they thought they could make more money like previous films have done (Hunger Games and Harry Potter)

    But it bit them in the ass because these movies are junk

    It really bit them in the ass when the third movie bombed, so the studio canned the expected fourth movie, leaving the story unfinished.

    They're currently planning to wrap it up as a TV series on Starz, without Shailene Woodley. Even those plans are in some doubt.

    So just like tv series then it might be hard to adopt a movie series as they might fail to finish it? Bomb or not, you don't leave people hanging at 75% done!

    Apparently this movie series proves you do
    I'll admit it, I enjoyed the first 2 enough that I bought the UHD set of the 3 at Walmart for like $25 and I thought that was suitable and the UHD and ATMOS presentation is better than average but not spectacular.

    Everyone that bought these movies, some in both formats should demand Liongate/Summit issue refunds if they do not conclude the rest of the story. WTH were they thinking splitting the last one, then leaving people high and dry?

    Woodley's contract only required her to be in feature films. When they asked her to be in the TV show, she said, "Uhh, no thank you."

    Did you see the trailer for the third movie? She couldn't even disguise how bored she was.

    Well, they were thinking that the movies would continue to make lots of money, like the first two did. The audience had other ideas and stopped going.

    They should have just ended the third movie with the wooden main girl's death. At least it would have been some sort of ending.

    Although, the actress is a total snob. She should be thankful the series even casted her talentless ass as if it weren't for these movies, she would have to sell her body off a street corner to those who are desperate.

    Shailene Woodley is a fine actress when given good material that she gives a shit about. She was excellent in The Descendants. I think with this series, she just fell into the trap of taking the job for the big paycheck, expecting it to open up her career and allow her to do better things. But then when she actually got stuck in the cycle of churning out these movies year after year, standing in front of green-screens staring at nothing and pretending that the franchise's utterly stupid plot made any sense, she stopped caring about any of it very quickly.

    Watching the second and third movie grow progressively worse (when even the first one wasn't particularly good to start with), and being locked into a contract that requires you to keep making more of them, is the kind of thing that can easily break a person's spirit. I can't blame her for taking the first opportunity to bail.
