The wait for Maze Runner fans is over. Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third, or the last, in the dystopian sci-fi franchise trilogy by James Dashner, finally premieres this Wednesday (24/1) in cinemas.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure was originally slated to premiere on February 17, 2017. However, the accident experienced by its main star, Dylan O’Brien, on March 18, 2016, made 20th Century Fox postpone its release until January 26, 2018.
As a result of an accident that occurred during the shooting, Dylan O’Brien was seriously injured. The production process for Maze Runner: The Death Cure had to be vacuumed for a year. To wait for the recovery of the handsome actor who at first glance looks like the late Paul Walker.
Wilbert Awdry, originally, wrote The Railway Series based on a story he told when his son was recovering from measles. Most of the stories about Thomas & Friends are taken from Awdry’s personal experience.
The success of the book and television series then made Thomas & Friends twice appointed to the big screen. In the form of musical animation. The first film, entitled The Great Race, was released in 2016. Meanwhile, the second film, Journey Beyond Sodor (2017).
While undergoing a recovery period, Dylan O’Brien admitted that he was really sinking in the dark. His struggle to resume shooting the movie Maze Runner: The Death Cure is really not easy. In fact, the 26-year-old boy had doubts whether he could get up and act again.
However, fortunately, after struggling for six months, Dylan O’Brien managed to get through these dark times. He was excited to continue filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure. And he couldn’t hide his happiness when he saw the film directed by Wes Ball was about to be released.
Like Dylan O’Brien, Maze Runner fans are very excited about the release of The Death Cure. Because it has been almost three years they have been waiting for the continuation of the action of Thomas et al. To be precise, since the second film, The Scorch Trials, premiered in 2015.
In the trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure which was released some time ago, we can see Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) again leading his friends. They are: Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Frypan (Dexter Darden), Jorge (Giancarlo Esposito), and Brenda (Rosa Salazar). They seem to be entering The Last City. A futuristic city. Surrounded by a maze controlled by their enemy: WCKD. Which can turn into a deadly maze.
The mission of the Gladers – as they are trapped in the maze – is to penetrate the maze, enter The Last City, and find The Death Cure. Namely, the antidote to the plague of The Flare. A virus that turns humans into a kind of zombie. In addition, Thomas et al also have to save Minho (Ki Hong Lee). Which, at the end of the second film, was captured by WCKD.
In addition, in the trailer earlier, there were also dangerous and tense actions carried out by the Gladers. In fact, this time, involving large vehicles. A kind of container truck and helicopter.
