With more than $100 million made at the box office in theaters last year, The Maze Runner was a cinematic hit. Based on the book series by James Dashner, the story follows Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and other Gladers as they attempt to make their way out of the maze and into the unknown world beyond the maze walls.
The sequel, set to release September 18, 2015 will pick up where the first film left off, after the escape of some of the boys and Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) from the maze. Believing themselves to be rescued from the maze trials, they try to gather more information about the mysterious organization, W.C.K.D. that placed them in the maze initially. Where the story leads next will shock audiences (at least those who don’t feel the need to read the book first).
Take a look at some of the first photos from the set of The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and stay tuned for further information as it is released!
