RUNNER: THE SCORCH TRIALS (M) 131 mins
The maze was just the beginning.
The Maze Runner franchise continues. Having escaped the maze of the first film, Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his fellow young survivors find out more about their ruined world - and have to travel across some of its most dangerous places. Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones’ Littlefinger), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring), Alan Tudyk, Barry Pepper, and Lili Taylor join the cast.
Picking up where the previous film left off, the handful of youngsters who survived find themselves in a processing facility under the command of Janson (Gillen). There, they discover theirs was not the only maze, and other graduates of WCKD's testing programme have also been liberated. Believing things are too good to be true, Thomas can't help but dig deeper, and what he discovers will take him and his friends on a journey through the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the Scorch, a danger-filled desert that has engulfed cities, and maybe even nations.
