It’s Trailer Watch time once more, where we collate all the major trailers of the day into one easily digestible dose! Today we have Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Pixels, Pan and We Are Your Friends. So let’s crack on, shall we?
First up we have the brand new first trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the moderately successful young adult fantasy movie from last year. Here’s the plot (SPOILER WARNING: Only read on if you’ve seen the first Maze Runner movie):
After having escaped the Maze, the Gladers – led by the heroic Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) – now face a new set of challenges on the open roads of a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles.
“The Maze is one thing but you kids wouldn’t last one day out in the Scorch.”
Check out the brand new, action-packed trailer below, which introduces us to a crucial new adult character being played by Game of Thrones’ Aiden Gillen:
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trails is released on September 18th this year.
Next we have a new promo trailer for Pixels, the upcoming sci-fi action comedy from director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter 1 & 2, Home Alone) about a world under attack from aliens who, due to a crippling misunderstanding from a time capsule we launched into space decades prior, appear in the form of classic video game characters like Pacman, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong. It stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Michelle Monaghan, Sean Bean and a hilariously mulleted Peter Dinklage.
