Watch: New ‘Maze Runner: Scorch Trials’ Trailer Promises More Running for Dylan O’Brien

Dylan O’Brien is off and running again in the new trailer for “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.”

The follow-up to 2014’s “The Maze Runner,” based on James Dashner’s YA novel, “Scorch Trials” finds O’Brien’s Thomas finding that life outside of captivity is just as dangerous. The latest clip offers more footage of “The Scorch,” the post-apocalyptic wasteland that took centerstage in the sequel’s first trailer.

The original grossed $102 million at the domestic box office and drew praise for O’Brien (“Teen Wolf”) and director Wes Ball. The Variety review called the pic “refreshingly low-tech and properly story-driven.”

Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Ki Hong Lee reprise their roles in the sequel, with Ball returning to direct.

“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” bows in theaters Sept. 18.
