This was first shown at San Diego Comic-Con to those who attended the Fox panel, and it had fans cheering then. And it was shown at the Paper Towns Night on the Towns event earlier today. Now, Fox has finally released the second Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials trailer, and if you watch carefully, you’ll get your first look at a crank!
With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 2 trailer released earlier today, and the Paper Towns screening this evening, plus the title treatment reveal of Miss Peregrine’s Home of Peculiar Children, there’s a lot for YA fans to be happy about.
This trailer shows some amazing action sequences and some mass drama, and I’m pumped for this movie and the future of YA book adaptations in general. From what we’ve seen here, it looks like the studios are respecting the source material more and more, and that’s all good news indeed.
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 opens in theaters on September 18, 2015.
