The Group Hopper

If you're one of those people who is getting a little tired of all the dystopian young adult sci-fi films hitting the big screen, "Saturday Night Live" has just the thing for you. Taking aim at The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Divergent, The Giver and more, the late night sketch series delivered this perfect trailer parody for a fake film called The Group Hopper. Throwing around a bunch of weird terms that have to be explained, especially to the recently arrived hero waiting to be sorted into some kind of group, comedian Pete Davidson finds himself in a world he doesn't understand, but is all to familiar to us. Watch below!

Here's the fake trailer for The Group Hopper from "Saturday Night Live" on 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 in theaters right now. See it now!

Well that's just a lie. But hey, at least you're being "cool" by hating on what's popular right now.

Wow this is awesome. Sums up how annoying most YA fiction is in my opinion.
