Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is the second chapter in the “Maze Runner” saga, where 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.
The film also stars Nathalie Emmanuel, Katherine McNamara, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Aidan Gillen, Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, plus Six Feet Under‘s Patricia Clarkson and Lili Taylor.
I wasn’t wholly sold on the first one, but as they realise that, unlike Highlander, there isn’t just one… maze, that is. And so the scene is set.
Now let’s just hope that Fox don’t cut this sequel to shreds to get a 12-cert!
