With the success of the first Maze Runner movie, it’s no surprise that people are wondering if there will be a second movie. The book series by James Dashner has a total of five books, so there is certainly enough material for more movies. In fact, the second book in the series, The Scorch Trials, is already in production and set to be released in 2015.
The studio behind the Maze Runner movies, 20th Century Fox, has already optioned the rights to the third and fourth book in the series. So it seems likely that there will be at least two more Maze Runner movies. As for whether or not they will be successful enough to warrant a fifth movie…only time will tell.
The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner is a 2014 American dystopian science fiction film directed by Wes Ball, in his feature film debut, and written by Noah Oppenheim, Grant Pierce Myers, and T.S. Nowlin from a story by James Dashner. The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Aml Ameen, Thomas Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Rosa Salazar, and Patricia Clarkson. It depicts a group of young people who are sent to live in a community isolated from the rest of the world as they try to find a way to escape an ever-changing maze.
The Maze Runner was released on September 19, 2014 in the United States by 20th Century Fox. It was a commercial success grossing $348 million worldwide against its $34 million budget and received mixed reviews from critics with praise for its visual effects but criticism for its pacing and lack of character development.
A sequel titled Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials was released on September 18, 2015 in the United States.
The Scorch Trials
The Scorch Trials is a 2010 young adult dystopian science fiction novel written by American author James Dashner and the second book in The Maze Runner series. The novel was published on September 18, 2010, by Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House, and sold 350,000 copies in its first week of publication. It is the sequel to the 2009 book The Maze Runner and precedes the 2011 book The Death Cure.
The Death Cure
While it’s true that the ending of the book series on which The Maze Runner films are based is fairly definitive, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that another movie could be made. After all, the Harry Potter and Hunger Games movie franchises both started as book series, and both went on to produce multiple films. So, will there be another Maze Runner movie?
It’s certainly possible. The Death Cure, the third and final book in the Maze Runner series, left a few loose ends that could potentially be picked up in another film. However, whether or not another Maze Runner movie will actually be made is still up in the air. The franchise hasn’t been as commercially successful as either Harry Potter or Hunger Games, so it may be tough to convince studio executives to invest in another installment.
That said, if you’re a fan of the Maze Runner movies, it’s definitely worth keeping your fingers crossed for another one. Stranger things have happened!
The Kill Order
The Maze Runner was released in 2014 and was a commercial success, grossing over $348 million worldwide. This led to a sequel, The Scorch Trials, being released the following year. The Scorch Trials was also a commercial success, grossing over $312 million worldwide.
With the success of the first two movies, it is likely that there will be another Maze Runner movie.
The Fever Code
Maze Runner: The Fever Code is a young adult dystopian science fiction novel written by James Dashner and published on September 27, 2016, by Delacorte Press. It is the second prequel to The Maze Runner series and the fifth installment overall. The book is narrated by Thomas, who is one of the Gladers and main protagonists in the Maze Runner series.
The Maze Runner Movie
The Maze Runner is a 2014 American dystopian science fiction action thriller film directed by Wes Ball, in his directorial debut, and based on James Dashner’s 2009 novel of the same name. The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter and Ki Hong Lee. The film was produced by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Joe Hartwick Jr., with a screenplay by Noah Oppenheim, Grant Pierce Myers and T.S. Nowlin.
The Scorch Trials Movie
The Scorch Trials is a 2010 young adult dystopian science fiction novel written by American author James Dashner and the second book, sixth chronologically, in The Maze Runner series. The book was published on September 18, 2010, by Random House Publishing Group’s Children’s Books subsidiary Delacorte Press. Dashner was inspired to write the novel after reading end-of-the-world books with his son. Like its predecessor, the novel was well received by critics and was a New York Times bestseller. A film adaptation of the same name directed by Wes Ball and written by T.S. Nowlin was released on September 18, 2015.
The Death Cure Movie
Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a 2018 American dystopian science fiction film directed by Wes Ball, based on the novel The Death Cure written by James Dashner. It is the third and final installment in the Maze Runner film series, following Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015). The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Dexter Darden, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Katherine McNamara, Barry Pepper and Jake Curran.
While it’s not yet officially confirmed, it seems likely that there will be another Maze Runner movie in the near future. The Maze Runner franchise has been a huge financial success, and the studio behind the films has expressed interest in continuing the story. While nothing is certain at this point, fans of the series can probably expect to see another installment in the next few years.
