The “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” the sequel to 20th Century Fox’s “Maze Runner” movie back in September 2014, is less than a month away before it hits the cinemas. The new film from the “Maze Runner” franchise picks up directly where the first film ended. The lead protagonist of the story, Thomas played by Dylan O’Brien, just got out of the Maze with the surviving Gladers and were welcomed by an eerie video message in an abandoned room.

Soon after the video message ended, the survivors were immediately carried off to a mysterious facility in the desert which is owned by the WCKD organization in the pretense that this was for their own safety.

When they arrived, they were welcomed by Janson who is played by “Game Of Thrones” actor Aiden Gillen. Janson, the man in charge of the facility and tasked to set ‘Phase 2’ of the organization’s plan in motion, interrogates Thomas. During the interrogation, Janson insists that Thomas reveals his allegiance, as reported by Collider.

The “Maze Runner” 2 film welcomes Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Ki Hong Lee back while saying hello to the new cast members Nathalie Emmanuel, Katherine McNamara, and Giancarlo Esposito of “Breaking Bad.” The new film also welcomes the return of director Wes Ball and the script written by T.S. Nowlin, the screenplay co-writer for “The Maze Runner,” as reported by ScreenRant.

For those who haven’t watch the prequel and are just swayed by the hype, you might be wondering if it’s advisable to watch the “Scorch Trials” without viewing the first. Well, since the first film didn’t show much of their present day world, watching this new movie will be a treat. With the introduction of new concepts, characters, and environments; this film will be very refreshing.
