Fans have been patiently waiting to see the concluding chapter of the Maze Runner trilogy after Dylan O’Brien was injured during a stunt gone wrong while the film was shooting in 2016. Originally set for release earlier this year, Maze Runner: The Death Cure is now coming to theaters in January of 2018.
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 bring the rebel group The Right Arm and the rest of his fellow Gladers with him. The first Maze Runner The Death Cure trailer, which debuted during the finale of Teen Wolf on MTV, shows us that Thomas isn’t screwing around anymore.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is directed by franchise helmer Wes Ball and also features Kaya Scodelario, Ki Hong, 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:
In the epic finale to the Maze Runner saga, Thomas leads his group of escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. To save their friends, they must break into the legendary Last City, a WCKD-controlled labyrinth that may turn out to be the deadliest maze of all. Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions the Gladers have been asking since they first arrived in the maze.
The final chapter of the trilogy hits theaters on January 26, 2018.
