New Maze Runner Poster Lands
Welcome to the concrete jungle

Labyrinth for Millennials, YA adaptation The Maze Runner is fixing up to be all dark, tangled and Darwinian. The film’s new poster, a dark and brooding affair that looks like the cover to the greatest ever Choose Your Own Adventure, gives a glimpse of the maze itself and the runners in action, well, running.

The second in the Maze franchise, The Scorch Trials, has just been confirmed as a greenlit project at Comic-Con. It will continue the story of Thomas (MTV Teen Wolf Dylan O’Brien) and the confused group of boys who discover themselves not so much Lost on a mysterious island, as stuck in an elevator and deposited in a strange and deadly maze.

With no memory of exactly who he is, and plagued by strange dreams about a mysterious organisation 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.

Also stuck in this killer web are Will Poulter and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, hoping to avoid whatever its equivalent to Bowie's King of the Goblins is.

The Maze Runner arrives in UK cinemas on October 10.
