Playing Dylan O'Brien's 7 Most Badass Moments in 'The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' Trailer

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.)
