What occurred in “The Maze Runner” was just Phase 1. In its follow-up, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Phase 2 is the agenda and it promises to be more challenging than anything the Gladers have dealt with before. It also promises to deliver more for viewers too as the world expands and new players (and their agendas) are introduced. Realizing more tests and trials await them at the hands of WCKD, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow survivors escape to what is now known as The Scorch — the barren wasteland beyond the walls. With only their wits and will to guide them to their destination, they must survive the cruel elements, the forces of WCKD and, most importantly, themselves. Catch a peek of what’s in store for the young escapees in the embedded trailer courtesy of 20th Century Fox.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Katherine McNamara, Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Aidan Gillen, Giancarlo Esposito, Patricia Clarkson and Kaya Scodelario.
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.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is challenged in US and UK theaters on September 18, 2015.
