You thought there was only one maze to run? Well, you’re wrong: The mazes are back and this time they scorch! Scorch Trials is the second adaptation of the popular YA lit series from James Dashner, which finds a group of teens fighting for survival in an odd dystopian future. The cast is headed up by Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario, with a number of familiar faces along for the ride, including Patricia Clarkson, Ki Hong Lee (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Dong), Aiden Gillen, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster in a Game Of Thrones double-header (Littlefinger and Jojen Reed, respectively). Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials hits theaters everywhere on September 18, but The A.V. Club and 20th Century Fox have an opportunity for you to see it for free on August 31.
