Dylan O'Brien and Giancarlo Esposito in Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure Trailer #1 (2018)

The Maze Runner is, in my opinion, the best YA adaptation to come out of the glut of films spawned by the success of The Hunger Games.  The sequel, The Scorch Trials, got less critical praise, but I really liked it too and thought it set things up well for the finale.  Unfortunately that finale got delayed a year when an on-the-set accident severely injured series star Dylan O’Brien, but now we’re set for the final act.  This is more of a teaser than a first trailer, but FOX can call it what it wants.  Maze Runner: The Death Cure opens January 26, 2018.

In the epic finale to the Maze Runner saga, Thomas leads his group of escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions the Gladers have been asking since they first arrived in the maze.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure was directed by franchise helmer Wes Ball and also features Kaya Scodelario, Ki Hong, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, and even Will Poulter will be back for this final chapter of the trilogy.

  1. I had kind of written this off because I was young adult’ed out. I’ll reconsider.

    Did you ever see City of Ember? Great adaptation of a great YA book. One of my favorites that came out of the glut. It had a great aesthetic and Bill Murray was outstanding in a supporting role. I suppose you saw it, you tend to see everything.

    I have to take a moment to recommend a book. The first thing the Ember screenwriter, Caroline Thompson, ever wrote, the thing that got the attention of Tim Burton and kickstarted her career, was a novel called First Born. It’s a horror novel, but a weird one that’s eerie, not actually scary. It’s about a woman whose aborted fetus comes back to be with her. I know that sounds both horrible and political, but in truth the book does not come off as either. I don’t think it’s in print anymore, but it is worth seeking out.
