The first trailer for the Young Adult adaptation of THE MAZE RUNNER has arrived, featuring a post-apocalyptic/dystopian society where a group of teenagers struggle to survive in a maze structure that is guarded by hideous creatures called Grievers. Based on the best-selling book by author James Dashner, the pic is directed by Wes Ball (BEGINNERS) and stars a host of up-and-coming teen stars, including Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and veteran actress Patricia Clarkson. It's got all the makings of a futuristic YA yarn, but dispenses with the romance angle that seems to plague the genre as a whole.

Get lost in the maze:

Here's the synopsis:

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, young Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape.

I'd never even heard of this until a few months back, but now, after seeing the trailer, I'm actually inclined to pick up the book. It seems to have a pretty solid cult following and is, of course, the first part of a trilogy (with a prequel tossed in for good measure). So, there's more to mine from this potential franchise-maker, but that will ultimately be decided on how well this first entry does. Looks promising so far.

THE MAZE RUNNER opens on September 19, 2014.

I've said it before and I've said it again: I'd much rather The Hunger Games be the template for YA film adaptations than Twilight, thank you very much.
