Last spring, production on Maze Runner: The Death Cure was halted and then postponed indefinitely after lead actor Dylan O’Brien suffered a concussion with a facial fracture and lacerations after a stunt went wrong. Last we heard, production was supposed to resume early this year in order to meet the February 2018 release date recently set by 20th Century Fox, but we’ve had no word of the film shooting again.
For those fans eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the Maze Runner franchise, it sounds like everything is all right because Fox provided a first look at the sequel during the MTV Movie Awards this past weekend. Dylan O’Brien and some of the other cast members show us around the WCKD compound where we get to see a lot of hallways and laboratories.

If you watched American Sniper and thought they weren’t patriotic enough in their depiction of Americans taking down terrorism, there’s another overtly American movie on the way, and we know that, because the word American is in the title. America.
American Assassin is based on Vince Flynn’s novel of the same name, introducing the recurring character of Mitch Rapp. With several books featuring the character, Mitch Rapp is a seasoned counter-terrorism operative who was first recruited unofficially by the CIA before being brought on board the agency officially later in his career. But American Assassin gives us the origin of this aggressive operative (played by The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien) who has an axe to grind against radical terrorists who were responsible for killing his girlfriend.

Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have a thing for real-life drama. The pair are just coming off of Lone Survivor, an account of a Navy SEAL mission to kill a Taliban leader, and are about to dive into Patriots Day, about the events leading up to and around the Boston Marathon bombing. In between, they have Deepwater Horizon, about one of the worst manmade disasters in history.
In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded near the coast of Louisiana, springing a leak that would flow for another 87 days (making it the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history). Of the 126 crew members on board at the time, 11 were killed and another 17 were injured. Berg’s film follows the courageous men and women who tried to prevent the disaster, and then, when the worst happened anyway, valiantly worked to save their colleagues.

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 »
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.
