The first trailer for “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” has released! Check it out below!
Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and director Wes Ball go behind the scenes in MTV’s exclusive visit to the set of ‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’.
EXCLUSIVE: Dylan O’Brien is in talks to join Peter Berg’s Deepwater Horizon opposite Mark Wahlberg. That’s the Summit Entertainment pic based on the infamous 2010 BP oil-rig explosion in the Gulf Of Mexico that killed 11 people and gushed oil into the water for 87 days. O’Brien will play Caleb Holloway, the youngest crew member, who survives but is devastated to have lost a majority of his crew.
O’Brien has developed a fervent fan base from his turn as Stiles on MTV’s Teen Wolf. In a short time, he has launched himself to blockbuster status. His feature debut was in Matt Walsh’s 2011 comedy High Road as a teenager who is kidnapped by a pot dealer. Last fall, he exploded in 20th Century Fox’s feature adaptation of the YA novel The Maze Runner, which opened to No. 1 at the domestic B.O. with $32.5M, ultimately grossing $102.4M stateside and $340.8M worldwide.
O’Brien stars in the sequel Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials which is scheduled to bow September 18.
Back in January, Berg, who previously worked with Wahlberg on Lone Survivor, replaced director J.C. Chandor on Deepwater Horizon. Berg also worked with the project’s screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan on another feature he helmed, The Kingdom. Participant Media and Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s of Di Bonaventura Pictures are producing. Deepwater Horizon will bow on September 30, 2016.
We’ve always known Dylan O’Brien was going to be a big (read: HUGE) star, but now he has the three Golden Popcorns to prove it. *~one thousand clapping emojis~*
On Sunday night (April 12), the “Maze Runner” star walked away with the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance. He beat out Ansel Elgort (“The Fault In Our Stars”), Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”), David Oyelowo (“Selma”) and Ellar Coltrane (“Boyhood”) for the coveted Golden Popcorn, which we’re sure will stand proudly next to his “I Heart Sterek” teddy bear. (Not that we’ve seen the inside of his apartment or anything. That would be weird.)
But that’s not all. O’Brien also took home the Movie Award for Best Fight, which he’ll share with last year’s Breakthrough Performance winner Will Poulter.
Did you think that was it? Because it’s not. Our boo O’Brien is taking home still ANOTHER Golden Popcorn for Best Hero after wracking up more than 8.4 million votes online, narrowly defeating Trailblazer Award recipient Shailene Woodley. And fans have officially lost their chill.
I have added photos of Dylan attending the 32nd Annual Paleyfest LA yesterday for Teen Wolf to the gallery!
Over the last four seasons, the impossibly attractive high school heroes of Teen Wolf have squared off with werewolf hunters, a vengeful kanima, one seriously evil grandfather, a deadly pack of Alphas, ancient assassins, the nightmarish Nogitsune, werejaguars, banshees, Berserkers, a wendigo, and, of course, The Benefactor.
But, according to executive producer Jeff Davis, facing those supernatural baddies pales in comparison to the terror Scott and his pack feel in Season 5 about what happens to them after high school graduation.
“There’s this strange thing: For some reason when you graduate high school, you leave all your best friends — why do you do that? There’s a moment in the first episode where Stiles asks that question aloud. He says, ‘If we’ve met the best people in our lives, why aren’t we trying to stay with them? Why do we try and go our separate ways?’ That’s the big fear of Season 5: Who’s going to go away?” Davis told BuzzFeed News during a recent visit to the Teen Wolf set in Van Nuys, California. “Much of the previous seasons were about Scott finding and building a pack; this is going to see him possibly losing it — possibly ending up on his own without his friends by his side, wondering how he’s going to face life without them. Which is very similar to a teenager who has to go off to college and meet all new people. I think that’s a valid fear.”
But in Season 5, Davis added, the supernatural supervillains that Teen Wolf has become known for will also be making life in Beacon Hills a living hell. “For me, the tagline of this season that we use in the writers room is: The rules have changed,” he said. “The 20-episode season will be very much the world of the supernatural being turned upside down.”
What else can you expect from the next stretch of episodes? Davis broke down the new season, character by character, to reveal what Season 5 has in store for everybody.
1. Stiles Stilinski (Dylan O’Brien)
“One of the first questions we asked in the writers room for each of the characters is, ‘How can we test them? How can we challenge them in huge ways this year?’ I think we’ve come up with a really good arc for Stiles. Dylan is going to get a lot to play. This is very much a season of secrets and how secrets can break a group of friends apart, and how people can lose faith in each other. It’ll be interesting to see when Stiles loses faith in Scott, where his relationship with Malia is tested and broken. We’re going to have a lot of character drama and conflict with that.”
