A second Maze Runner trailer has been unveiled, along with 9 great movie posters. Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, the film follows a young man who finds himself thrown into The Glade, a world surrounded by a maze. This group spend their days trying to find a way out and by night strange monsters called Grievers ensure no one left in the maze after dark survives. The much-loved novel has quite a fan base, and the film should be able to capitalise on that nicely. The new trailer paints a much clearer picture, giving us more action and snippets of the aforementioned Grievers. We’re looking forward to this one.
Starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, and Patricia Clarkson.
Official synopsis for The Maze Runner:
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.”
