'Maze Runner: Scorch Trials' Hopes to Sprint Past 'Black Mass'

17 September 2015

Expect a crowded race at the North American box office this weekend as a diverse mix of films test their appeal with audiences, particularly males of all ages.

Fox's YA film adaptation Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, targeting younger moviegoers, is expected to claim the weekend crown with a debut in the low- to mid-$30 million range. The $61 million sequel opens exactly a year after The Maze Runner surprised with a $32.5 million domestic opening on its way to eaing $102.4 million in North America and $238.2 million overseas for a stellar global haul of $340.8 million.

Scorch Trials is already off to a rousing start inteationally, where it took in $26 million from select foreign markets last weekend, well ahead of the first movie.
