With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens hogging all the movie attention lately, perhaps you forgot that another hyphenated blockbuster hit has a sequel coming out this fall: The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Well, let this new trailer featuring a totally badass Dylan O’Brien remind you:
(Sidebar: You get a quick glimpse of Maze Runner’s zombie-like “cranks” at 1:57. We saw more of them in a clip at Comic-Con and can tell you they are terrifying and will haunt our nightmares forever.)
Anyway, here are O’Brien’s seven most badass moments from the trailer:
1. When he’s sleuthing around WICKED and casually drops from the ceiling.
2. When he finds this laboratory filled with freaky experiments in test tubes.
3. When he, again casually, catches a machine gun and is read to eff stuff up.
4. When he slides under a closing door that’s thisclose to smooshing him.
5. When he outruns a pack of cranks...nearly right off the edge of this cliff.
6. When he catches Brenda (Rosa Salazar) before she plummets to her death.
7. And when he badass-ly says, “They’ll never stop. So I’m going to stop them.”
But none of that compares to PATRICIA “ULTIMATE BAMF” CLARKSON!
