Maximum Ride Trailer

"So what do we do?" "We fight!" Paramount has released a trailer for the young adult sci-fi adaptation titled Maximum Ride, directed by Jay Martin, about six orphan kids who are genetically cross-bred with avian DNA. This gives them the ability to fly, and they band together to figure out the "diabolical, scientific secrets of how they came to exist". Yep, it's as bad as it sounds. Starring Allie Marie Evans, Patrick Johnson, Lyliana Wray, Luke Gregory Crosby, Gavin Lewis, Tetona Jackson, Zayne Emory, Peter O'Brien & Carrie Wampler. As expected, this looks very cheesy and designed specifically for the "young adult" audience, so tread carefully. The effects don't even look good and the villain seems pretty awful, too.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) Jay Martin's Maximum Ride, direct from YouTube:

Maximum Ride

Based on the phenomenal, bestselling book series by James Patterson, Maximum Ride is the extraordinary journey of six DNA-enhanced young orphans with the ability to fly — on a mission to rescue the youngest of their flock while discovering the diabolical, scientific secrets of how they came to exist. Their leader is Max, wise beyond her years, who must summon all her courage and acumen to outmaneuver the brutal half-human/half-wolf creations known as “Erasers”, confront her own inner demons and ultimately face a stunning betrayal. Maximum Ride is directed by Jay Martin, a storyboard artist who made his feature debut with the film 7 Minutes a few years ago. The script is written by Angelique Hanus and Jesse Spears, based on the novel by James Patterson. Paramount will open in select theaters starting September 30th.
