First Trailer For Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials


If you’ve never seen The Maze Runner, there’s probably not much point in getting excited about the release of the first trailer for the next chapter of the Maze Runner Saga. To get a brief plot outline of the first film, simply watch either The Hunger Games or Twilight, their plots are basically the same. Also, Google a photo of the cast for the first film, watch the trailer below, and if you can’t see any of them in it, assume they’re dead.

In the second Hunger Games title, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his group of first movie survivors (known as Gladers) must try and discover the truth about the mysterious and powerful organisation known as WCKD. One thing they have definitely already discovered is that WCKD is the stupidest name ever for a powerful organisation, and whoever in the company chose that name may well be making their way to the job centre as we speak.

Their journey takes them to The Scorch, a desolate, barren landscape that is filled with unimaginable obstacles, danger round every corner, and a strict minimum of Factor 30 sun cream rule. Our maze runners team up with a group of heroic resistance fighters, and attempt to take on WCKD’s mighty forces as they try to uncover WCKD’s shocking plans for everyone.

This is the second instalment of James Dashner’s popular series of young adult science fiction novels, and is once again directed by Wes Ball. Also starring Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Game Of Throne’s Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, Lili Taylor and Patricia Clarkson, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is due for release in UK cinemas on the 17th of September.
