Mitch Rapp truly has nothing left in his life to lose. Following the death of his parents in an horrific car crash when he was a teenager, he has been on a collision course with authority, eventually being expelled from three boarding schools. Life seemed to be coming together when he met the love of his life Katrina, but only moments after he proposed to her on the beach, an armed terrorist opens fire on the crowd killing her and many others. Now life has become nothing more than a pursuit of revenge and he trains hard, learning how to handle a firearm all in preparation for taking the terrorist and his cohorts down once and for all. Naturally he draws the attention of the CIA, who recruit him into their black ops. He is sent to a cabin in the woods where a warrior of a man named Stan Hurley runs a team of highly skilled assassins and he is invited to investigate the ongoing series of terrorist attacks while trying to prevent the onset of World War 3.

O’Brien was injured in an accident on the set of the film on March 18.

Deadline reports that O’Brien fractured ‘either his cheekbone or orbital socket’, after he fell off the back of a set which had been designed to look like the rear of a train. Details on the exact injuries O’Brien suffered are still unclear.
The post-apocalyptic sequel performed less healthily than the original did last year, but $30.3 million was still more than enough to send it to the top of the box offices.
The weekend’s US box office race was won by The Maze Runner sequel, which easily fended off a challenge by the newly released Johnny Depp movie Black Mass to open at the top with an opening haul of $30.3 million.
The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is the follow-up to the 2014 original, although it did not take as much in its opening weekend as its predecessor. Dylan O'Brien stars again in the lead, and it's the second in the series of young adult dystopian novel adaptations, the first instalment enjoyed a first weekend of $32.5 million roughly this time last year.
The young actors were surprised at just how action-packed the sequel was.
After The Maze Runner became a sleeper hit, the cast knew they'd be back for films based on the next two novels by John Dashner. First up was The Scorch Trials, which throws the plucky group of teens into various post-apocalyptic locations outside that maze.
'The Scorch Trials' is the second chapter in this teen dystopia franchise
The leader of the ensemble is Thomas, played by Dylan O'Brien, who rose to fame on the TV series Teen Wolf. The Scorch Trials has a lot more action than The Maze Runner, and he found it a challenge. "What's funny is on Teen Wolf they'll never get me a stunt double," O'Brien laughs, "because it's a money thing and it's not like I'm ever doing a wolf flip or anything. They'll be like, 'Just fall down the stairs.' On this I have a stunt double, but it's never really anything extreme. It's always something that would work better if I do it, which I think is really important to the spirit of the book. I also love doing stunt stuff and action stuff. But I didn't think it would be more running. This film has me running everywhere."

After the rather lacklustre teen-dystopia adventure The Maze Runner, the action continues in this equally gimmicky sequel. It's the middle episode in novelist James Dashner's trilogy, so it lacks a proper narrative structure, building through a series of action sequences that put our heroes into jeopardy. But the film never develops any suspense because writer T.S. Nowlin and director Wes Ball never bother to properly develop the characters or find an original approach to the action.
After escaping from the Maze, Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his friends (including Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee and Dexter Darden) find themselves in the Scorch, a wasteland created by some sort of environmental catastrophe. They're rescued by Janson (Aidan Gillen) and taken into a sort of halfway house for lost teens, where Thomas meets Aris (Jacob Lofland), a loner who knows something nefarious is going on. Sure enough, the monolithic corporation WCKD, run by Ava (Patricia Clarkson), is using these kids because they are immune to the disease that's turning people into Cranks who maraud across the landscape. To avoid this fate, Thomas and crew plot an escape, fleeing into a devastated city, where they meet Jorge (Giancarlo Esposito) and feisty teen Brenda (Rosa Salazar). Pursued by WCKD, they travel on into the mountains in search of a safe haven.
Yes, this has essentially become a zombie thriller now, as the Cranks chase the kids even more relentlessly than Janson and WCKD do. The problem is that everything about this film feels familiar, from crowds of The Walking Dead to The Day After Tomorrow's abandoned shopping mall to Transformers 3's tilting skyscraper. As with the first film, the dialogue overflows with corny mythology in which everything given an ominous, cool-sounding name. It's all so constructed that it sounds utterly artificial. And the derivative action sequences are directed without even a hint of realism.

Having overcome a series of deadly encounters in the box-office smash The Maze Runner, this much-anticipated second chapter in the dystopian young-adult series finds Thomas and his fellow Gladers facing their greatest challenge yet, as they search for clues about the sinister organisation known as WCKD. Their mission takes them to a desolate landscape called the Scorch, where they face new dangers at every turn. Teaming up with resistance fighters, they must take on WCKD's powerful forces in an attempt to uncover the organisation's shocking plans for these young heroes.

Following their supposed escape from the monster infested maze, the surviving Gladers led by Thomas are taken to an underground facility in the wake of a devastating solar flare known as The Scorch that has left the vast majority of the population infected with a disease called the Flare, but little do they know they are about to enter Phase Two. Soon they begin to realise that they're still part of WCKD's dastardly experiment and they must find a way to escape once and for all or risk more of them dying untimely deaths. They are warned about the dangers of entering the barren wasteland that has become the rest of the world, but they have no choice if they want freedom. Cities have been overtaken by sand dunes, but they soon about to discover yet more unfathomable horrors that lie before them.
'The Maze Runner' and 'Neighbors' also scooped awards.
It's difficult to argue with the results of this year's MTV Movie Awards victors, who took home their much-deserved accolades on Sunday (April 12th 2015). The top prize of Movie Of The Year went to Josh Boone's adaptation of the John Green novel 'The Fault In Our Stars' - but who else won big at the 2015 ceremony?
Shailene Woodley took home a couple of awards herself; first for Best Female Performance in 'The Fault In Our Stars', and second for Best Kiss with Ansel Elgort. 'The Maze Runner' star Dylan O'Brien also won big, landing Breakthrough Performance, Best Hero and, of course, Best Fight with Will Poulter. O'Brien will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. Meanwhile, Zac Efron's abs in 'Neighbors' predictably won him Best Shirtless Performance, while his onscreen chemistry with Dave Franco made them Best Duo. 'Neighbors' was also the winner of Best WTF Moment, with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne taking home the award.
