More young adult fare coming your way this fall. With the first trailer for the second installment of the Maze Runner series released in May, a new trailer has now graced the Internet. Director Wes Ball has stayed on from the first film to direct this sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Here’s the official 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.
While Dylan O’Brien is the main star of the film, Game of Thrones fans who also happen to enjoy the Maze Runner series will be excited to see Aidan Gillen (who plays Littlefinger to a creepy perfection) taking the role of the main baddie (which should be no surprise). The film also stars Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Rosa Salazar, Jacob Lofland, Lili Taylor, Patricia Clarkson, and Giancarlo Esposito.
With the success of the first film, The Scorch Trials looks to be an intense follow up to the original, and will surely excite fans for how the rest of the film series is going to play out.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials hits theaters on September 18. Check out the trailer below.
