First Look: Dylan O’Brien in ‘The Scorch Trials’

dylanobrien-scorchtrials-031115Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Dylan O’Brien in The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.

In one photo, we see Dylan as Thomas on the ground holding a lighter. Another photo shows Thomas with a big gun as his fellow gladers played by Kaya Scodelario, Ki Hong Lee & Thomas Brodie Sangster stay close behind him. The last photo shows some of the gladers hanging upside down by their feet. That can’t be good!

The Scorch Trials picks up where The Maze Runner left off and begins with the revelation that the maze and the Glade at its center were constructed by WCKD to train young mind-wiped survivors after a massive solar flare devastated the planet. “It has transformed the world into a desert with sand dunes that crawl and are swallowing the ruins of a lost world,” says director Wes Ball.

The gladers will come across some scary humans called Cranks. “We don’t want to call them zombies, but they fit into that category,” Ball says. “They’re not undead, but they are rage-filled.”

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens September 18, 2015. Check out the first look photos below.
