The first images from The Maze Runner sequel, The Scorch Trials were released today.
The Scorch Trials picks up immediately were The Maze Runner ended with the survivors of the maze discovering the world outside the walls. Read a little about what you can expect from the movie:
Based on author James Dashner’s 2010 novel, The Scorch Trials begins with the revelation that the maze and the grassy Glade at its center were constructed by the nefarious organization WCKD to train young mind-wiped survivors after a massive solar flare devastated the planet. “It has transformed the world into a desert with sand dunes that crawl and are swallowing the ruins of a lost world,” says director Wes Ball, who returned for the sequel.
When Thomas and his fellow Gladers escape the control labs of WCKD, they set off across this blighted landscape, fearing attacks from infected humans known as Cranks. “We don’t want to call them zombies, but they fit into that category,” Ball says. “They’re not undead, but they are rage-filled.”
