|The Maze Runner Movie Poster with Dylan O'brien|
- It is the film adaption of the first book in the highly successful young adult, dystopia series - The Maze Runner so it already has a huge fan following!
- The lead man! Dylan O'Brien has been cast as the lead character Thomas. He is a highly talented actor and has a huge dedicated fan following because of playing Stiles in the hit MTV show Teen Wolf.
- The rest of the cast. With highly popular young actors such as: Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter and also actress Kaya Scodelario cast in the movie it is sure to bring in a huge young audience.
- It is Director Wes Ball's first big project which will give him room to express his new and unique director style.
- It is the first young adult book to film adaption in a while that is centered around a male lead instead of female. So it brings something new and will bring in more of a male audience too.
- The ongoing themes of Friendship, Self-Identity, Persistence and Freedom are relatable to the young teenage audience who will be watching the film.
- You enter the movie with the same knowledge as the lead Thomas (which is nothing). This means that you learn and discover things at the same speed as him and therefore it means people will connect very well with the lead character.
- If the first movie does well then the second and third books: The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure will also be made in to films and everyone loves a good movie series!
- Everyone loves a well created villain and with the grievers: creatures described as resembling "a gigantic slug sparsely covered in hair and glistening with slime" and it's body is riddled with metal appendages like: spikes, shears and rods. The Maze Runner definitely has one.
- Finally, The trailer has been released and it was brilliant. The imagery looks amazing and the trailer sure does leave you wanting to find out what happens in he movie.
I am sure that The Maze Runner will be an amazing movie and I recommend everyone to go and see it when it is released in September/October this year.
