A little more than a month ago, we saw the first trailer for Wes Ball’s Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, which took the cast out of the Glade and into the Scorch. Now, those same characters have been transformed from photogenic humans into blocky approximations of their former selves. No, it has nothing to do with WCKD’s experiments; the trailer has simply undergone the Minecraft treatment. Why? Because the sequel’s mod is coming soon to the popular game and, despite the odd clash of tones between the game and the action movie, it’s a pretty cool look at the expansive world of the Scorch.
If you want a better look at the world of The Scorch Trials, the human version that is, then head on over to this image article. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aidan Gillen, Giancarlo Esposito, Ki Hong Lee, Rosa Salazar and Jacob Lofland, T.S. Nowlin’s adaptation of the James Dashner novel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens September 18th.
Watch the Minecraft-y trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis of Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials:
