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:
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?

Entertainment Weekly has shared the first official photo of Oscar-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley in the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s novel, Ender’s Game. Gavin Hood adapted the novel into a screenplay and directed the film that is being distributed by Summit Entertainment.
This new still gives fans a look at Kingsley as his mysterious character, Mazer Rackham. Kingsley’s character is of Maori decent and so his face is tattooed with intricate Maori designs.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kingsley talked about the tattoo and getting to consult with a Maori tribal expert: “Every gesture in the tattoo carries family history, family struggles – it’s your past. I was so enthralled. He’s in quite a contained, stylized uniform but then this wonderful face tells his warrior history.”
Plus, the actor talked about the script and his character: “In the script, which I think is beautifully written, what come across is the authority and mystery. There’s quite a lot said about him in the story before you see him — by the recruits and by his fellow officers — and that’s useful as far as preparations.”
Finally, fans will be interested to know that the first trailer for the film will be released on May 7th! Ender’s Game also stars Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, Andrea Powell, Abigail Breslin, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, and many more talented actors. Take a look at the full cast list here.
