In The Maze Runner, Thomas and the other Glaiders spent a good amount of time running from mechanical beasts called Grievers, and the new trailer and exclusive clip for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials shown only to Comic-Con attendees, shows our favorite characters running from a new threat: zombie-like creatures known as Cranks.
The trailer and clip were for the eyes of Comic-Con goers only and will hopefully be released online for everyone's viewing pleasure. I, unfortunately, could not get into The Scorch Trials panel due to the lines, but good ol' MTV has provided me with the juicy details I so desperately needed.
According to MTV, The Scorch Trials trailer is as action-packed as the first and picks up right where the first film left off, posing the question of whether or not WCKED is truly good or if the Glaiders have been fooled by the mysterious corporation. Thomas encounters an elderly woman who knows his name and we're introduced to Brenda, a new character to the franchise played by the lovely Rosa Salazar, whose character is intrigued by Thomas and the other Glaiders.
Wes Ball introduces the exclusive clip, commenting that The Scorch Trials is starting to resemble a horror movie with its introduction of the truly terrifying Cranks. Thomas and Brenda are venturing through the dark when the two encounter a slew of Cranks; one such Crank is seen chewing off the head of a rat. They both begin to run for their lives and the clip abruptly ends with Thomas and Brenda approaching the edge of a crumbling cliff.
The clip and new trailer sound more than amazing, begging the question: when will the rest of us get to see more of The Scorch Trials?
The Scorch Trials hits theaters September 18th and I'm more than excited to check out the highly anticipated sequel to The Maze Runner.
