Delayed Sequel Update: First Look Maze Runner: The Death Cure Feature

Last spring, production on Maze Runner: The Death Cure came to a grinding halt when lead actor Dylan O’Brien suffered a concussion. O’Brien ended up with a facial fracture and lacerations after a stunt went wrong.

Read on and see the first look at Maze Runner: The Death Cure feature… has your first look at the upcoming Maze Runner: The Death Cure. We haven’t reported on the third Maze Runner movie since Dylan O’Brien was seriously injured on set.

What we do know is that filming on the Maze Runner: The Death Cure resumed this past March in order to meet the February 2018 release date recently set by 20th Century Fox.  Over the studio gave its target audience a first look at the upcoming movie at the MTV Movie Awards this past weekend.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure Details:

In the featurette 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.

In the video does reveal that this is where Minho (Ki Hong Lee) is being kept captive. It’s also where we’ll find Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) after she betrayed the rest of her group, giving up their location to WCKD, believing that this is the only way to find a cure to the epidemic known as the Flare.


At the end of Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) was preparing to take the fight to WCKD to rescue Minho, kill Dr. Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson), and he was bringing the rebel group The Right Arm and the rest of his fellow Gladers with him. Presumably there’s a bunch of action sequence that take place in the WCKD hallways and labs, which is why they cast can’t tell us much in the video, though it does show off the cool sets, as well as one particular rugged vehicle that will take them to WCKD.

Check out the Maze Runner: The Death Cure featurette below:

Maze Runner: The Death Cure is directed by franchise helmer Wes Ball and also features Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, and it sounds like Will Poulter will be coming back for the concluding chapter of this trilogy as well.

Here’s the official synopsis of the novel for those curious [via SlashFilms]

It’s the end of the line. WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.

Will anyone survive?

What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. The truth will be terrifying. Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all. The time for lies is over.
