20th Century Fox has been working on getting an adaptation of James Dashner’s, The Maze Runner, to the silver screen. Fans of the young adult series will be very excited to know that the first official trailer for this anticipated adaptation has finally been released!
The first trailer gives us a close look at the dystopian world the story is set in and an introduction to the major characters. The Maze Runner follows Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), who finds himself in a closed off community with a group of boys his age.
Thomas also discovers later on that his memory was erased before being placed in “the glade.” He must join the forces of “runners” to try and find a way out of the glade and to figure out the truth behind the situation they are in.
The Maze Runner is directed by Wes Ball and has quite a talented young cast that also includes Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Patricia Clarkson, Aml Ameen, Jacob Latimore, Ki Hong Lee, Don McManus, Chris Sheffield, Blake Cooper, Joe Adler, and Dexter Darden.
