“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” is only months away from its release in theatres and actor Dylan O’Brien is teasing exciting details about the upcoming sequel. What does O’Brien think was the Gladers’ worst decision? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“The Scorch Trials” will see the return of Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Theresa (Kaya Scodelario), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Minho (Ki Hong Lee) and the rest of the Gladers, as they enter the so-called second phase of the trial.
As seen on the first “The Maze Runner” movie, Thomas led the Gladers safely outside the maze. While the rest of them thought that things have ended after successfully escaping the maze, Thomas and the rest of the team will be entering another one of WICKED’s trials.
O’Brien told HollywireTV that escaping the maze was probably the Gladers’ worst decision. The 23-year-old actor, who also stars in the series “Teen Wolf,” hinted that Thomas and the rest of the Gladers will find The Scorch more challenging than the maze because there are no walls to protect them from the elements of the outside world.
“It’s just survival… I think it will be a larger scope visually,” he said.
Meanwhile, “Maze Runner” director Wes Ball told Empire Online that “The Scorch Trials” are just the beginning of the Gladers’ adventures. Ball admitted that he liked the idea of directing the sequel to the movie without making it look like a “rehash of the first film.”
“We got to go into a completely different look, a different kind of environment, and different threats altogether, but to still tell the story of these characters we fell in love with from the first movie,” Ball revealed.
Ball also admitted that the adaptation of James Dashner’s book series also called for necessary changes in translating the story into the big screen. The director hinted that there will be scenes from Dashner’s first book that will appear in the second film while some scenes from his second book will be shown in “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.”
“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” opens in theatres on Sept. 18. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
