Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials movie quotes brings a second installment of the Maze Runner film series to theaters. The science fiction action film, based on the James Dashner novel, was adapted into a screenplay by T.S. Nowlin and directed by Wes Ball. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opened in theaters on September 18, 2015.
In Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Minho (Ki Hong Lee) and the others are picked up in a helicopter immediately after escaping from the maze in the first film. They think they are taken to a facility operated by rebels, designed for kids like themselves who have left the clutches of W.C.K.D., the mysterious organization that Thomas and others just escaped and keep them quarantined from a brutal Flash virus that lurks outside.
But it doesn't take long for the team to learn that Janson (Aidan Gillen) and others operating the facility are not allies, rather W.C.K.D. members themselves. Knowing they must escape this facility, Thomas's team must cross through the Scorch, a wasteland full of the Flash virus and miles of desert, which is far from an easy task.Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials hits theaters already showing movies such as Everest, Black Mass, The Perfect Guy, and The Visit.
