Yesterday saw the release of a new teaser poster for director Wes Ball’s adaptation of The Maze Runner, and now comes the first trailer. Based on the novel written by James Dashner, the trailer is thrilling and very promising indeed.
Naturally there will be comparisons to The Hunger Games, but The Maze Runner looks to be a strong, very interesting film with a good cast. The trailer has some great moments which should thrill fans of these sorts of movies, and hopefully impress fans of the book. Check out the trailer below.
Directed by Wes Ball, the film is an adaptation of James Dashner’s book. The cast includes Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Patricia Clarkson, Will Poulter, Ki Hong Lee, Chris Sheffield, Aml Ammen and Blake Cooper.
The Maze Runner finds its way into UK cinemas October 24th.
Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that he’s been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade.”
