The Maze Runner The Death Cure production resumes

This past spring, production on the sequel The Maze Runner: The Death Cure hit quite a speed bump when a stunt gone wrong injured franchise star Dylan O’Brien. Production was expected to resume in May after O’Brien had a chance to recover, but in late April it was revealed the actor would require more time to heal. That resulted in an indefinite postponement of the shoot and the release date for the sequel being pushed back from February 17, 2017 nearly a full year back to January 12, 2018, but now Dylan O’Brien is ready to shoot again.

The Maze Runner 3 Release Date

The end of last month brought news that production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure had been postponed indefinitely to allow franchise star Dylan O’Brien more time to recover. The actor was injured when a stunt went wrong back in March. Details on how the accident occurred haven’t been confirmed, but O’Brien was said to have several broken bones, either fracturing his cheek bone or orbital socket.

At this time, it’s unclear just how much longer O’Brien needs to recover before production can resume on the third film in the franchise based on author James Dashner‘s book series. But the good news is 20th Century Fox has plans to get the movie back on track, and that begins by setting a new release date for early in 2018. Plus, the studio has also shifted some release dates for a couple upcoming Marvel movies and the reboot of Predator. Find out more below Read More »

The Maze Runner 3

In just over a couple weeks, the sequel Maze Runner: Scorch Trials hits theaters, picking up exactly where the first film left off with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the surviving members of the Gladers escaping the maze and being escorted to “safety” in a helicopter. However, when it comes to the second film leading into The Maze Runner 3, it won’t be the same kind of transition.

In a recent interview, franchise director Wes Ball revealed that Maze Runner: The Death Cure will actually pick up one year after the events of The Scorch Trials, which is quite a departure from the source material. Read More »

Maze Runner Scorch Trials 1

The only thing weirder than the big mansion in the middle of downtown Albuquerque is the post-apocalyptic party going on inside. It’s December 16, 2014, and the Gertrude and Zachary Mansion at 2nd and Lead has been transformed to a very important location in The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Wes Ball’s follow-up to the 2014 hit The Maze Runner.

From top to bottom, the interior of the mansion has been transformed to the spot where Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) is separated from his fellow Gladers on their epic quest across the scorched Earth they discovered at the end of the last film. Here he’ll be drugged, endure (or enjoy) hallucinations, kiss a girl, and eventually be reunited with the group before meeting some incredibly important new characters.

On this day, number 36 of 55 shooting days, the temperature on The Scorch Trials set is near-freezing even as the location doubles for a super-hot environment in the film. Despite that, the camaraderie of all the cast members is particularly noticeable. Each seems incredibly excited to be continuing the story of James Dashner’s novels, and especially to be doing it together.

This time he and the other characters have a whole new set of problems to deal with, not least of which are the character played by Aidan Gillan (aka Littlefinger on Game of Thrones) and the cranks, a set of people infected by the virus that has scoured humanity.

In this new The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials trailer, we’ll start to see what happens when O’Brien and others take refuge in a desolate city, where they’re not the only ones in town. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

maze runner honest trailer

One of last year’s pleasant surprises was Wes Ball‘s The Maze Runner, a cool sci-fi action film masked as a YA adaptation. I mean, yes, the books by James Dashner are technically “young adult” in that they are about a group of teens mysteriously trapped in the center of a giant maze. But much more than the rest of its YA companions, The Maze Runner caters to guys and girls with plenty of action, intrigue and suspense to go along with the hints of young love.

A sequel is already set for September of this year, which means it’s a perfect time for the Screen Junkies to give The Maze Runner their patented funny, smart, treatment. Watch the Maze Runner Honest Trailer below. Read More »
