First trailer for 'The Maze Runner' is intense


Gotta go faster, faster, faster-faster-faster

The first trailer for the film adaptation of James Dashner's The Maze Runner has succeeded in making me curious about an upcoming film/ book trilogy that I didn't know existed until a few hours ago. This intense trailer exposes bits and pieces of what looks to be a very cool story: A young man named Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) wakes up suddenly in a strange place with no memory of who he is. He and a band of other lost boys must navigate their way through a deadly maze that surrounds them to uncover the truth, while the sudden appearance of a mysterious girl (Kaya Scodelario) adds even more intrigue. 

The maze itself looks fantastic in all its massive, daunting glory, I've been a fan of Scodelario since her Skins days, and the last movie I saw about a maze featured a singing David Bowie in spandex, so I have high hopes for The Maze Runner.

The Maze Runner hits theaters September 19, 2014.
