The most under-the-radar, young adult release of last year had to be The Maze Runner. Made for a reported $34 million, the film ended up grossing $340.7 million worldwide and remained in domestic theaters for 20 weeks. This year we’ll get the next installment in the franchise, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and now we have our first look at the upcoming sequel.
Here’s the plot:
Directed by Wes Ball, based on the novel by James Dashner, Scorch Trials sees Dylan O’Brien back in the lead role, joined by Aidan Gillen, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Sangster, Jacob Lofland, Rosa Salazar, Giancarlo Esposito and Barry Pepper. The film is set for a September 18 release, one day shy of the one year anniversary of the first one.
