Before The Maze Runner was released, many thought it was just a Hunger Games rip-off that was destined to fail. However it proved the naysayers wrong by becoming a hit and by being a pretty good movie that more than deserves a sequel.
Anyone who saw that first film will know that by necessity the follow-up will be rather different, and now we can take our first look at The Scorch Trials, which takes us out of the maze but continues many of the mysteries.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.’
It’ll be in UK cinemas on September 18th.
