Watch the Latest Thrilling Trailer for ‘The Maze Runner’ [VIDEO]by Mandi Salerno | PopCrush
Attention, YA novel fans — this is one movie trailer you don’t want to miss! ‘The Maze Runner’ has released a second glimpse of the anticipated book adaptation and it’s even more thrilling than the first.
In the trailer we see Dylan O’Brien take the role of the film’s lead, a young guy named Thomas who inexplicably wakes up in the Glade, a wide-open space walled in by a seemingly endless maze. Neither Thomas nor his fellow exiles — one of which is played by our pal Jacob Latimore — can explain the maze’s existence or their involvement in it. They have to band together to solve the mystery or, at the very least, die trying.
‘The Maze Runner’ is another addition in the YA book-to-movie trend, following in the footsteps of predecessors such as ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Twilight’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’ Judging by the truly eerie set, the cast of actors (which also includes Thomas Sangster and Kaya Scodelario) and the gripping, edge-of-your-seat storyline, this new film will be able to easily hang with the Hollywood Big Leagues.
Catch ‘The Maze Runner’ in theaters starting September 19.
