'Maze Runner' Stars: We Play Super Kids, Not Superheroes

Teens trapped in an elaborate labyrinth have to band together to survive in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.”

So it is good then that they have their wits—because they have nothing else.

“These kids aren’t superheroes,” actress Kaya Scodelario tells Made in Hollywood.
“They’re not ninjas — they’re just guys that are in this situation.”

Her costar Dylan O’Brien adds, “Yeah, it lines up with the theme of the book.”

In the second installment of author James Dashner’s young adult fiction dystopian thriller, O’Brien as 16-year-old Thomas mysteriously finds himself transported into an intricate maze where he encounters a group of teenagers establish a functioning society while trying to escape their surroundings.

“Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” opens Friday.
