Of course, after the success of the first movie, this is going to get a sequel. With positive reviews from critics and a good start at box office getting $32.5 million in the US and almost hitting the hundred million worlwide, it’s obvious that The Maze Runner – a $35 million budget movie – is getting its part dos that is pretty much set in the third act of the first film. You can read my Maze Runner review here, I actually enjoyed that movie and said I was interested in the sequel. Basically, what I heard from Devin Faraci at Badass Digest, the continuation of the story will keep us close to the surviving Gladers unravelling the next level of WICKD’s plans for them. Some of those plans include a hundred mile hike on the surface of the Earth that was roasted by solar radiation, like we saw in the first film.
Again, they keep closer to the source material, Fox will be naming the sequel: The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. The film is set for a September 18, 2015 release. You know what that means, right? They’re working on the movie, like, right now.
