Watch: Full Teaser Trailer for Wes Ball's 'The Maze Runner' Adaptation
"We don't know… what's out there…" 20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for Wes Ball's The Maze Runner, adapted from the novel of the same name by James Dashner, who also worked on the screenplay. This story is about a bunch of kids trapped in a brutal game (another Hunger Games follow-up) but the game is actually a gigantic maze they're trapped in. Directing is Wes Ball, of that short Ruin, who's making his feature debut with Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson & Thomas Brodie-Sangster in his cast. This actually looks pretty damn good, it has a nice sci-fi tinge to it, I'm looking forward to seeing what's out there. "I think it's time we find out what we're really up against."
Here's the first full teaser trailer for Wes Ball's The Maze Runner, originally from YouTube:
The Maze Runner marks the feature directorial debut of Wes Ball (of Ruin), working from a script by Noah Oppenheim and James Dashner (who wrote the book on which the film is based). The story follows teen Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is, only to learn he's been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all while establishing a functioning society in what they call The Glade. Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter and more star in the film arriving on September 19th, 2014.
First poster above for The Maze Runner also just debuted today. For more updates visit the film's Facebook.

Trust me, the premise is different. They're both dysotopian young adult novels but that's where the similarities end.

The effects are great for a YA movie! If Catching Fire was the "Gladiator" of YA movies, this has got to be the "Alien" of YA movies

Looks a lot less like Hunger Games than anticipated. I'm in.

The Cube meets Hunger Games... but I am still interested

You mean the Cube meets Lord of the Flies... Maze Runner is not a dystopian story about rebellion.

Good point, but I was referring to the teen aspect of the movie
