Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Released on January 26, 2018, fans of the Maze Runner franchise finally got their ending to the marathon sci-fi trilogy after the release of the film was delayed following an injury to lead actor Dylan O’Brien.

The Death Cure, directed by Wes Ball, is based on James Dashner’s novel series, which follows the story of a teen named Thomas (played by O’Brien) and a group of young adults who are all test subjects to a series of government experiments (governed by WCKD) that involve their immunity to a “Flare virus” ­­ — a zombie plaque that has hit the earth. The series follows the group as they attempt to solve the mystery of the “maze” they were dumped into and their fight to escape WCKD. The final instalment will answer unsolved questions.

The first two films of the series went on to make over $300 million worldwide.
