‘The Maze Runner’ trailer promises a true contender for the YA throne

The Maze Runner

Having trouble keeping all those YA franchises straight in your head? Let The Maze Runner complicate things further.

The trailer for 20th Century Fox’s great YA hope has dropped, looking eerily reminiscent of both The Hunger Games and The Host.

But here’s the thing: it seems pretty good.

Based on the novel by James Dashner, it tells of a teeanger (Dylan O’Brien) who wakes up in a mysterious, all-boy holding pen called ‘The Glade’, to escape from which one must pass through a deadly maze.

The Wes Ball-directed feature also has supporting performances from Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario going for it.

Though it’s doubtful The Maze Runner will make a bigger mark than Divergent and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, the trailer at least promises a thrilling, dread-inspiring drama.

It arrives in cinemas later this year.
