‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ Hot Character Posters Officially Out; Thomas Brodie-Sangster Spotted at LAX Looking Forever Young
As loyal fans and casual audiences look forward to the premiere of 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials', new character posters have officially been released by distributing body 20th Century Fox and will soon be followed by a new trailer. Star Thomas Brodie-Sangster was also recently spotted at the Los Angeles International Airport looking quite like the little boy he played in his first major film debut.
In a report by Collider, the six posters announcing the film's release date feature returning cast members as well as newcomers. These include frontrunner Dylan O'Brien as Thomas, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt, Kaya Scodelario as Teresa Agnes, Ki Hong Lee as Minho, Rosa Salazar as Brenda and Nathalie Emmanuel as Harriet.
Fans don't find their individual character names on the posters though. Instead, the actors are seen suited up in their Glader gear against a stark white grungy backdrop, and the movie title enveloped in flames. Under it is the release date 'Sept 18'.
According to ComingSoon.net, the first of the posters to be released was that of O'Brien's. The remaining five were released over the following 48 hours. This will all lead up to the July 23, 2015 debut of a new trailer for 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. The movie is the second installation in the 'Maze Runner' series and is a motion-picture adaptation of the book of the same name by James Dashner.
The second film focuses on events after the Maze, which was just Phase One of a heinous operation. Thomas and the rest of the Gladers have escaped but are presented with new challenges and obstacles in a desolate wasteland.
One of the Gladers, Brodie-Sangster, was sighted in LAX last July 16, 2015 - more than a decade after his child-acting days in the romantic comedy favorite 'Love Actually'. Viewers may remember him as the precocious young child who starred opposite Liam Neeson. He had an iconic scene in an airport where he had to run after a love interest before she was lost forever.
According to The Daily Mail, seeing him at LAX was reminiscent of such a scene and noting that he didn't seem to have aged, brought together a queer sense of déjà vu. He was dressed head to toe in casual grey and had the air of comfortable cool. He didn't look a day old from his first mainstream debut even though he is now 25 years old.
Brodie-Sangster, O'Brien and the rest of the gang will be back on the big screens on September 18, 2015 for sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. The upcoming film is the second one in the science-fiction adventure 'Maze Runner' Trilogy directed by Wes Ball.
