The Maze Runner Trailer Dashes In
Prepare to be a-mazed

We’re currently awash with Young Adult adaptations. With every book seemingly optioned for potential moviefictation, the studios are looking for the next Twilight or Hunger Games-level hit. Here comes the first trailer for one of the latest titles looking to nab our attention, The Maze Runner.

Adapted from James Dashner’s 2009 novel, which has been in development almost since it was published, The Maze Runner stars Dylan O’Brien as Thomas, who wakes up in a mysterious elevator transporting him into a massive maze filled with other boys. With no memory of exactly who he is, and plagued by strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as WICKD, he soon discovers that he’s in a very dangerous place.

Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a means of escape. But with the obstacles ever changing and a surprise twist in the arrival of a young woman (Kaya Scodelario), it won’t be an easy task.

With Wes Ball scoring the directing gig after impressing with his short film Ruin, the film also boasts some real young talent, with Will Poulter and Thomas Brodie-Sangster also among the ranks. The Maze Runner will be out here on October 24.

If the movie maintains the brutal harshness shown here this could be quite thrilling. More

Incredibly derivative but could be fun
Count the cliches: you're not like the others, maybe we were sent here for a reason etc! Try to remember you're not watching The Hunger Games Part Fourteen or a bloodless remake of The Running Man! More
