20th Century Fox gave Yahoo! several new one-sheets for The Maze Runner, based on the best-selling Young Adult novel by James Dashner. Most of them channel Hitchcock’s Vertigo, which is really cool.
The previously released trailer looks like a cross between Lord of the Flies, “Lost” and Hunger Games. I’m also intrigued by the tease of creatures outside of the gates…
“When Thomas (O’Brien) wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based on the best-selling novel by James Dashner.”
Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter and Aml Ameen star in the film, which is directed by Wes Ball.
Dashner has penned four entries in the “Maze Runner” series to date, with “The Scorch Trials” and “The Death Cure” serving as sequels and “The Kill Order” acting as a prequel.
The Maze Runner will open in the States on September 19, and in UK cinemas October 24.
