Maze Runner: The Death Cure pulls in $1.5 million in Thursday previews

Maze Runner: The Death Cure pulls in $1.5 million in Thursday previews”

"Why was such a literally labyrinthine plan necessary to discover an antidote?"- but "why" in the more existential sense. At bottom, The Maze Runner may be about nothing more than generational resentment, just a bunch of kids exhausted of old people telling them what to do. Then an accident happened with "Maze" star Dylan O'Brien on the "Death Cure" set, shutting down production and causing a delay of almost a year, slowing that momentum.

Topics include wrapping up the franchise and explaining the film's plot really badly; snatching some memorabilia from set; whether the conclusion will satisfy fans of the books and films; what was the first sci-fi TV series or movie they fell in love with; and who was the best Maze Runner of all time (and THAT answer may or may not surprise you).

If ever a movie desperately demanded a "Previously on..." opening, it's "Maze Runner: The Death Cure". Kids like Thomas are hunted and exploited by a bureaucracy of human survivors called WCKD (World in Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department), who are trying to find a cure for the nonimmune and don't feel especially determined to be ethical about it. And while the action sequences are heavy on adrenaline, too often they feel a little too flawless in their execution and strain believability. Though its young leads are mostly blah, the franchise has steadily accumulated character actors to liven things up, like Gillen, Esposito, and Pepper in the second film and now Walton Goggins in the third as the deformed leader of the Cranks. You can't run audiences through the same maze without them figuring out where all the exits are and longing for other worlds to explore.

Dr. Ava Paige, executive director of WCKD believes she is close to finding a cure for an infection that has left nearly three quarters of the population in a zombie-like state. These reasons are made even more clear in this film. Photo Credit: Courtesy Twentieth - © TM & © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

Set six months after the previous film, The Death Cure opens with an epic chase scene, filmed in the Kalahari Desert. Maze Runner: The Death Cure has romance, action, despair, and everything in between. But their commando raid doesn't yield the one person whom ringleader Thomas (O'Brien) and his fellow Maze runaways are looking for: their old comrade Minho (Ki Hong Lee). I have always been interested in doing a job that involves movies and T.V. shows in some way.
