There must be something freeing about writing a post apocalypse movie. Things are simpler. Freer. You wouldn’t have to worry about traffic cams, or being broke, or having a job. Relationships, too, are largely uncomplicated – there’s good guys and bad guys and it’s pretty easy most of the time to tell them apart. The world of Maze Runner: Scorch Trials has had not one but two apocalypses (apocalypse?) – the sun has burned most of the land to desert and there’s been a deadly virus to boot.
The Maze Runner: The Scorch trials is the sequel to the hit first film The Maze Runner (adapted from the novels by James Dashner) and focuses on the Gladers’ quest to cross the most ravaged part of a post-apocalyptic earth. The film is set for release September 19, 2015.
