The release date for the second entry in the Maze Runner trilogy is drawing closer, and now you can enjoy the first full-length trailer of the movie!

The Scorch Trials picks up right where the first movie left off but, as book readers will notice from the trailer, the filmmakers have made a few interesting changes from the original story line to favor the film’s pace.

Among other minor differences, the first act of the book seems to have been expanded; whole the characters have also been given a bit more of an active role: they are the ones who decide to escape from the WICKED building, instead of being forced out. Watch the trailer below and judge for yourself!

Ahead of today’s trailer release 20th Century Fox debuted six new character posters featuring fan favorites Thomas, Theresa, Minho and Newt, while also presenting new comers to the series Brenda and Harriet.

Fans are a bit surprised that Aris was not given a poster for himself, specially considering that, in the book, he is significantly more present than Harriet. They roles may have changed, but we won’t know for sure how much until the film’s release on September 18.
