Following the success of the movie The Maze Runner, it was pretty much a given that we would get to see the sequel hitting the big screen, which is just what we are getting this year. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens very soon and the cast and crew have been talking about the sequel.
Actress Kaya Scodelario plays the role of Teresa in the movies and she has been talking about the difficult shooting process that took place. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials was shot at altitude in Mexico and Kaya has admitted that it was not very easy to do.
Scodelario was in attendance at the recent fan event at London's Leicester Square, when she explained, "It feels like you wake up with a hangover every single day. But it's beautiful. The landscape is really important to the movie, it's so vast."
Kaya Scodelario is not the only one who found things a lot more different with the sequel, as director Wes Ball also admitted that Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials posed some very different challenges for him. Wes did also admit that, while the conditions were difficult, it was all necessary to give the movie that authentic feel.
Ball said, "Filming for the first film was flat and humid and full of bugs. Now we're in this mile-high city with a big change in atmosphere. Shooting in these crazy environments of sand and rock and rusty metal was a completely different environment for us, but it adds to the movie in a really cool way."
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens on September 10 in the UK and on September 18 in the US.
