The Maze Runner trailer is here

The story follows a boy named Thomas, who wakes up in a strange place called the Glade with no memory aside from his first name. Take a look at what he is up against in the giant puzzle in this latest look.

Is it just us, or does this look a little like the The Hunger Games? Yes, it has franchise potential, but in the crowded new genre of teen books to films this year (Divergent, Vampire Academy) it may get lost in the rush.

The Maze Runner comes to theaters September 19th, 2014 and stars Dylan O’Brien,Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Patricia Clarkson, Ki Hong Lee, Aml Ameen, Jacob Latimore.

The film is directed by Wes Ball.
