Maze Runner: Scorch Trials

After topping the box office this past weekend with an estimated $32.5 million opening weekend, the young adult sci-fi adaption The Maze Runner starring Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario has done well enough for 20th Century Fox for them to move forward with a sequel. THR reports the studio has set Maze Runner: Scorch Trials for release on September 18th, 2015. The film will be based on the second book in James Dashner's book series, and while the title seems odd, considering the fact there are no mazes in the sequel story, it's simply brand recognition so people who aren't familiar with the books.

Fox also released a high-definition version of the concept art we saw at Comic-Con this past summer:

The film is also doing well overseas, so this looks to be a hit for Fox. During The Maze Runner panel at Comic-Con, director Wes Ball said if they film did well, production on the sequel would begin this fall (which implies he'll be back to direct), and with a release date set for just under a year from now, that still seems to be the plan. Since the film just hit theaters, we don't want to spoil the first film by giving away the synopsis to the sequel just yet, so maybe you should just head to theaters. Our own Alex Billington enjoyed the film quite a bit, we'll certainly be looking forward to the sequel. Stay tuned for more updates from here.

      I didn't know this movie was from a book series but figured someone would escape the maze. It's a solid movie though, you just don't know who escapes until you see it.

    I really enjoyed the movie; it reminded me a lot of the movie "Cabin In The Woods", minus it not being a horror movie.

    Well I guess they got out of the maze...

    Watched the movie thought it was good. Bought the book series. Read the first and second book then rewatched the first movie. Now I see that the movie sucks. Hopefully this one is better.
