After a long wait, the official trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure is here!
Starring Dylan O’Brien, the third and final film in the young-adult dystopian franchise sees Thomas and the escaped Gladers take on their most dangerous mission yet.
The epic Maze Runner finale was originally scheduled for release in February 2017. However, due to a serious on-set accident involving stunt cars, the film was delayed.
During the incident, lead actor O’Brien sustained serious injuries. While, initially, the film’s director Wes Ball assured fans that “after a few weeks of rest and recovery he’ll be back up and running to finish our adventure together”, O’Brien’s injuries turned out to be more substantial than first thought.
The star remained out of the public eye for the majority of the year, and reportedly suffered a concussion, facial fracture and brain trauma. In an interview with Metro, Dylan O’Brien describes how the on-screen incident affected him and his return to set.
‘There was a time there where I didn’t know if I would ever do it again … and that thought scared me, too,’ he said. ‘I had lost a lot of function, just in my daily routine. I wasn’t even at a point where I felt like I could handle social situations, let alone showing up and being responsible for work every day. Long hours on set, delivering a performance and carrying a movie … it just makes your palms sweat,’ he revealed.
The franchises first film, Maze Runner, and second film, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, racked up over $300 million USD at Box Office. The films are based on the young-adult sci-fi series of the same name by American author James Dashner.
