The Maze Runner.

The Maze Runner.

Films such asĀ The Hunger Games and The Divergent have very much set the trend for movies centred around teens battling to overcome the odds in a high pressured, competitive setting. Greyscale clothes, concrete and intense romantic stares galore. Following in the path of such productions is The Maze Runner starring Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Kaya Scodelario. It is based on a series of novels by James Dashner, so we can expect more films to come.

The film opens with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) waking up in a cage in The Glade, a bare expanse that is surrounded by a giant maze. He joins a heavily populated group of similar aged boys who introduce him to his surroundings. No one knows why they are there, but they all know of the maze, and the fact that whomever enters it, never comes back.

Thomas begins to get used to life in The Glade, but things are turned upside down when a girl he knows (Kayla Scodelario) arrives as a new, unprecedented Glade inhabitant.

The film is due for UK release this September, but if you just can’t wait for a glimpse of what’s to come, take a look here.
