Variety is reporting that Lionsgate expects that Insurgent will make $350 million or more. The film hits theaters on March 20, 2015.

Sounding bullish on the outlook for the “Divergent” franchise, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said the second film, “Insurgent,” should gross between $350 million to $400 million worldwide.

That would represent an increase of $27% to 40% above the estimated final gross of around $275 million expected for “Divergent,” starring Shailene Woodley. “Insurgent,” which went into production last week, will open March 20 with Lionsgate splitting “Allegiant” — the last book in Veronica Roth’s dystopian trilogy — into two films that will open in 2016 and 2017.

Feltheimer said the “Divergent” franchise will be making significant contributions to Lionsgate’s profits into 2018. He noted that Roth’s books have sold 20 million copies worldwide, a pace that he asserted is steeper than the trajectory at this point in the franchise than for the books in Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games” trilogy.
