The film The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is based on the dystopian novel of the same title. It’s the second book of the series written by James Dashner. Book reviewers describe the series as a mix of The Hunger Games and Divergent. In the film, the protagonist is portrayed by MTV’s Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien.
Dashner is often asked questions like “where was the worst place you’ve ever been lost or trapped? In a Q&A on Amazon, Dashner admits that he and his son did get lost in a corn maze once. “I didn’t think I’d get lost in a Halloween corn maze!” he wrote. “But as soon as we realized that we had no idea how to get out I used the trick Thomas learned in the first book–turning right no matter what–and sure enough, we got out. I have a lot more respect for corn mazes now!”
