With all eyes on “Divergent” to become the next “Twilight” or “The Hunger Games,” the first trailer for “The Maze Runner” is busting through just in time to make an impression.
Another adaptation from a young adult novel, the first official preview of the film, which stars “Teen Wolf” actor Dylan O’Brien and “Skins” actress Kaya Scodelario, has debuted.
According to the trailer’s official description, the 20th Century Fox feature stars O’Brien as Thomas, who awakens in a maze with “no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D.”
The preview establishes the core characters, including the group that he has been trapped in the maze with, as well as his potential love interest, played by Scodelario.
Thomas summons his bravery and heads deep into the maze to discover its true purpose and the reason they have all been brought there.
“The Maze Runner” opens in theaters on September 19. How does it stack up to the most recent batch of young adult book-to-movie adaptations? Let us know in the comments!
