Seven New Images from “The Maze Runner” starring Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario

20th Century Fox is going to be releasing an adaptation of James Dashner’s The Maze Runner this fall and some amazing new images have hit the web!

Page to Premiere exclusively shared seven new images that give us a closer look at life in the Glade. Several images feature Dylan O’Brien as Thomas and show us part of his character journey. Through these images, we also get a glimpse at the relationships Thomas has with other characters:

THE MAZE RUNNER

For those unfamiliar with the story, here is an official synopsis (via IMDbPro): “Thomas (O’Brien) awakens in a dilapidated elevator with no memories except for his own name. The elevator deposits him into a strange place called The Glade – a large outdoor space surrounded on all sides by 150 foot walls of solid stone, and inhabited by 50 other boys who have lived there for the past 2 years all with no memory of how they got there or who sent them. Every morning the walls move apart to allow the boys out of the Glade and into the enormous and complex MAZE that stretched for miles and miles with no clear end or escape. At night the walls seal the boys inside the Glade and protect them from the vicious Grievers – insect like creatures who prowl the maze and attack anybody unfortunate enough to get stuck in it overnight.

The maze is constantly shifting, awe-inspiring, and so far, unsolved. The Gladers only hope of escaping lie in the hands of elite Maze Runners who search the shifting maze for an exit each day. When the elevator makes an unscheduled delivery of the first girl (Teresa) in the Glades history, everything is thrown into chaos. Together, Thomas and Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) must embark on a quest to solve the riddle of the maze and reveal the chilling secret of who brought them there, and why.”

The Maze Runner was directed by Wes Ball and also stars Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter, Ki Hong Lee, Blake Cooper, Aml Ameen, Chris Sheffield, and Patricia Clarkson. Will you be seeing Maze Runner when it is released on September 19?
