Scorch Trials Movie Trailer Reaction!

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
It's called Scorch Trials,
Not Maze Runner 2.

Okay, first and foremost, watch the trailer to Scorch Trials (the 2nd movie after The Maze Runner,  which if you have not watched, you must).


Give me a minute to breathe and restrain myself from typing all of the next sentences in all caps.


Okay, I'm good.

I have absolutely no idea if my expectations were just too high or I imagined it to be so much like the book, but I didn't love the trailer for several reasons which I will now tell you.

WHAT?
The story the trailer is trying to portray is so far out. I mean, WHY ARE THEY ESCAPING? What's with all the other people? Why are they hanging upside down on the ceiling?

What's with Dylan O'Brien sliding on the floor? Okay, that, I gotta admit was pretty awesome. I get that they had to make adjustments to the movie, but I hope it doesn't stray too far from the book.

Was that supposed to be RAT MAN?
Why doesn't he look like.. well.. Rat Man? He's supposed to be this lanky, old, and mysterious guy that is cautious about the distance between him and the Gladers. What's with the passing a WCKD folder to Thomas?

Anyway, even though I didn't love the trailer, I did enjoy watching and it made me more excited for the actual movie! The cinematography in a matter of minutes was stunning, just like the first movie. It sets a darker vibe, which is exactly like the 2nd book (amazeballs!).

I'm also looking forward to seeing new cast members add to the story and suspense of it all. James Dashner, the author of the Maze Runner trilogy, was there during the entire shoot and I trust all the decisions he makes regarding the changes from book to movie.

Needless to say, I am so excited to see the movie! And come on, who would deny oneself of Ki Hong Lee a.k.a. Minho in black? People look better in black. Admit it.

The trailer portrayed a quite a different story from the book, if it's good or not, I am yet to know when the movie officially comes out in September!

September, come at me! I am ready for you.


Are you as excited as I am? Share the hype!

P.S.
WHERE WERE THE CRANKS? I was so ready to be horrified. But I guess they're a surprise and are meant to freak people out in the big screens!

May the comments be ever in my favor (or not)
