Alternate Versions

When submitted for classification for its UK cinema release, the BBFC advised the distributors to cut some gruesome moments to avoid a 15 rating. These included some moments of threat and horror involving "zombie-like" characters and shots of injuries caused by a beating. When the film was resubmitted with these cuts made, it was given a 12A. The uncut version was later released as a limited edition Steelbook Blu-ray with a 15 rating. See more »

How to make an entire book fandom hate you
11 September 2015 | by maddisonfieldSee all my reviews

I am so unbelievably unhappy with this movie! The writer of the script has completely dissed the original most exciting plot from the books to some stupid ridiculous mainstream apocalyptic story.

None of this happens in the book. None of it makes sense. It's called "The Scorch Trials" as in trials from wickd. Not some stupid escape adventure! I was so excited for this movie and I'm going to be honest, I left the cinema fuming with anger. If you're going to create a movie based on a book, actually go by the book plot. Don't make you're own and expect everyone to be happy with it. I'm sure the writer of the movies just ticked off an entire fandom.
