From Page to Screen: The Scorch Trials Trailer

Alright, you guys. The Scorch Trials trailer premiered the same day I did a post about the new movie poster, so I wanted to wait a day or two to post about the trailer. So let me show it to you and then we’ll discuss it after, okay? Here it is:

Now that you’ve seen it, let’s talk about it. This is going to be a little ranty. If you’ve read the book, this movie trailer is NOTHING like it. There are characters with the group that shouldn’t even BE with the group; there is information given to Thomas and the Gladers that was NEVER given to them like that; there’s just a lot of stuff that’s different. It’s really annoying, but at the same time, it does look pretty AWESOME. It’s still going to be a good movie, I think. Now that I’ve seen TMR and separated the book and the movie in the mind, I can go into TST knowing it’s going to be SO different. Also, the Scorch looks EXACTLY like I pictured, so that’s definitely a plus. I’ve seen that James Dashner actually approved all of these changes. Do any of you guys know if that’s true and where I can see that?

What do YOU think about the trailer?

From Page to Screen: The Scorch Trials poster!

As you may or may not know, this blog started with a review of The Maze Runner by James Dashner, and even though I thought the first movie was REALLY different and some parts of it irritated me, I’m still excited for the next movie, The Scorch Trials, and I’ll definitely be seeing it in the theater. Yesterday, they released the first poster for the movie over on Facebook, and I wanted to share it with everyone because it. looks. awesome.

The Scorch Trials Movie Poster

I’m so pumped about this poster, you guys. It looks A LOT like how I pictured the Scorch, so that’s really exciting. For anyone who’s wondering how much they’ll change the plot though, MTV recently released a behind-the-scenes video in which Wes Ball says they’re basically using the next two books in the series (The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure) as the basis for this movie. You can check out the full video on MTV.com. I thought that would irritate me, but honestly, I’ve kind of separated the books from the movies in my mind because of how different TMR was, so now I’m just kind of excited to see what’s going to happen.
