Now that we are stepping into the last quarter of 2014, it’s time for us to introduce one of the films you must watch this month!
Fictional characters from our favourite novels have been making their way to the silver screen lately as popular novels such as “The Fault in Our Stars“, “The Hunger Games“, “Fifty Shades of Grey”, and more have been picked up and turned into movies. Similar to “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent”, James Dashner’s young adult sci-fi trilogy series, “The Maze Runner” will be adapted into a feature film this year.
“The Maze Runner” is set in dystopian future, in which a group of boys must find a way to escape a completely enclosed environment, “The Glade”, through a series of clues in the maze. The boys are about to give up but things take an unexpected turn when a comatosed girl, Teresa, arrives on a note. Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) appears to be the only boy who can communicate with her and along with some of the boys, they begin their dangerous adventure to escape the maze filled with horrid creatures, known as “Grievers”.
The question is, can they escape the maze? Why were they thrown into The Glade in the first place? That’s for you to find out!
Although Wes Ball made his directorial debut via this film, surprisingly, the film received positive responses from the audience during the private screening at San Diego Comic Con 2014. The film’s release date was pushed back from 14th February 2014 and it is now set to be released on 11th September.
