‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ Official Trailer Released (VIDEO)

The Maze Runner was one of the biggest hits of last fall, helping keep the YA-adaptation boom alive just a little while longer, what with The Hunger Games coming to an end in November. This fall, the Maze Runner series continues with Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, as Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the rest of the surviving Gladers deal with the fallout of the big reveal at the end of the first movie: the survivors of the Maze are now entering Phase Two…whatever the hell that means.

In addition to O’Brien, the movie stars Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee Patricia Clarkson, Rosa Salazar, Jacob Lofland, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen and Lili Taylor. In short, it’s a pretty strong cast from top to bottom, and while this sequel will depend on having seen the first movie, The Maze Runner is an absolutely fantastic little movie that builds an interesting world and mythology that I’m anxious to see The Scorch Trials explore.

So what’s going to happen in The Scorch Trials? Who are the Cranks? And will Thomas and his friends make it out of this movie alive?

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials hits theaters on September 18. Until then, get caught up with the first movie (or read the book series upon which the films are based! I’m planning to, since the movie piqued my interest).

Also, let us know what you think about the series, and the latest trailer, in the comments!
