As anyone who saw “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” this past fall can tell you, the so-called Cranks that roam Thomas’ (Dylan O’Brien) post-apocalyptic United States are a nightmare. They bite, scratch, and kill without mercy, but undoubtedly the most terrifying thing about them is that they’re just like us — only they’re unlucky enough to be several stages down the line in a horrible disease called The Flare, which wreaks havoc on the mind and body until the sufferer becomes a horror show straight out of “The Walking Dead.”
Many of the Cranks came to life via the power of makeup — MTV News was on set for a portion of filming, and met several of them — but those nightmare-inducing sewer Cranks were made with the power of CGI movie magic. So it’s pretty damn funny to watch O’Brien and Rosa Salazar, who plays Brenda, acting completely out-of-their-minds terrified of a guy making funny faces in a motion-capture suit.
The struggle will be real. Teen Wolf returns Tuesday, January 5th at 9/8c.
You can own Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials when it arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on December 15th. There’s also the option to get the Ultimate Fan Edition on Blu-ray, which comes with two hours of extras and a prequel comic book. If you’d rather not wait for those, the movie is also being release on digital HD today.
Yesterday we had a little chat, today we get to talk a bit longer, so what idea do you have in mind for Season 6?
I can’t really say that it is going to happen. But I would like to introduce the Ghost Riders and Arachnes. If I will use the Hellhound or not, I can’t say. But the pack will need a lot of people, because that’s for season 6A, 6B I would follow it up with 1 More villain that ends up with a big cliffhanger for season 7A.
Is Stalia done for good?
In this show we can’t say anything about that.
Are new opening credits coming for season 5B?
I don’t know if we’re going to do that already, but we probably will. But there are new opening credits for season 6 for sure. We might change Dylan O’brien’s opening, we also have Shelley’s opening that we’re trying to chance, then we might add 2 or 3 people.
Yeah it would be. But why no Dylan O’Brien?
I wouldn’t even ask him. Not because I don’t want him in my show, because he might make a guest appearance or 2 in a season. But he’s such a movie star and he’s going to do big things. I can’t hold him back. Teen Wolf still helps him. But if I do a Comedy/drama show he wouldn’t learn anything new.
