‘The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ First Look Photos Feature Dylan O’Brien In Serious Peril (PHOTOS)

Last year, The Maze Runner proved to be the latest Young Adult novel to become a big screen sensation, and much like Twilight, Divergent and The Hugner Games, its sequel will follow just one year from the release of the original.

The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will pick up almost immediately after the end of the first film, as Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow survivors deal with the fallout of the major revelation that punctuated part one (no spoilers, although I’m not sure why you’d be checking out these photos if you didn’t see the first film. Then again, I wouldn’t exactly blame anyone whose desire to remain spoiler-free was overruled by their desire to see some new Dylan O’Brien pics). Of course, Dylan O’Brien’s Thomas isn’t the only person in serious peril in these first look photos. Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Minho (Ki Hong Lee) find themselves suspended upside down in a situation that looks like it’s going to get worse for them before it gets better.

The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials doesn’t hit theaters until Sept. 18, but you can check out the pics below right now via Entertainment Weekly:
