‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ Trailer: All Sizzle, No Fizzle

Scorch-Trials

The first trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials has arrived, and so far everything looks just as thrilling as you would expect, if not better.

Having just barely escaped the maze that claimed the lives of many young men, Thomas and his friends are about to realize their journey to freedom has only just begun as they find themselves taken from one quasi-prison to another. The Scorch Trials finds the group learning that they were not the only ones who had to fight their way out of a maze, but that is not the only secret waiting to be revealed. The adults may say the crew is safe, but all signs seems to indicate the opposite is true. You can view the first trailer below.

I really enjoyed the first Maze Runner film. It was a big and fully realized universe that offered an unbelievable story executed so well that you couldn’t help feeling a bit of the fear that filled the hearts of those trapped inside the puzzle on screen. If The Scorch Trials can meet that level of quality filmmaking I will be happy, but this trailer makes it seem like things could be even more exciting than they were in the first chapter of this incredibly epic saga. Whether or not that indeed is the case won’t be known until September 18 when the film hits theaters, but so far you can bet your ass I will be in line to see Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials on opening night. How about you?

    I prefer the filmmakers take the basic story of books and adapt them to fit the media of film. For me it’s a way to have the film be different from the books and keep me as a reader enticed to watch the film all the way through.
