Movie Review – The Maze Runner (2014)

11 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Maze Runner, 2014.

Directed by Wes Ball.

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Will Poulter, Aml Ameen and Blake Cooper.

Synopsis:

A nameless boy wakes up amongst a group of teenage men to find himself trapped in ‘The Maze’. Making friends and enemies, he soon realises that he is destined to become ‘The Maze Runner’, and he will need to break free to save the lives of everyone trapped within.

It’s true that The Maze Runner owes a debt to The Hunger Games. While it lacks the political context and Battle-Royale-survival plot, it does have a sense of fun and playful adventure that bogged down the Katniss-led series. As the first of a franchise (the sequel has been greenlit) with a trilogy of books, a prequel novel and a further novel in the works, The Maze Runner has a lot to live up to. »

'Maze Runner 3' Won't Be Split Into a Two-Part Movie

9 October 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the Harry Potter franchise split J.K. Rowling's final book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two movies, it started a trend that continued in similar franchises such as Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent. One young adult franchise that will not be following in those footsteps is The Maze Runner, according to director Wes Ball.

During an interview with Digital Spy, the filmmaker, who is currently prepping his sequel The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, revealed that he won't turn the last book in author James Dashner's trilogy, Death Cure into a two-part finale, stating "there is something off" about turning one book into two movies.

"I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that's it. Four? I think there's something off about four. For me, if I have any say in it, there's three movies basically. We're not going to [split a book in two], no way. I »

Superstar Denzel outrun by maze runners

28 September 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Denzel Washington.s films have raked in more than $4 billion at cinemas worldwide but the superstar.s latest movie was beaten in Australia last weekend by a bunch of barely known youngsters.

The Equalizer, a violent big-screen version of the 1985 TV series, which re-teamed Washington with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua, rang up $2.3 million from Thursday through Sunday.

Pro-rata that was well below the Us weekend debut of $US35.1 million, which ranks as the biggest September launch for an R-rated film, eclipsing Jackass: Number Two, which pulled in $29 million in 2006.

In Oz the action movie, which casts Washington as a former member of the special forces who comes out of retirement after Russian gangsters ensare a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), trailed the second outing of sci-fi action/adventure The Maze Runner.

A clear favourite with vacationing teenagers, The Maze Runner, which features Dylan O.Brien, Aml Ameen, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario, »

Book to Screen: The Maze Runner Works But Can’t Compare to James Dashner’s Book

23 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

First off, I enjoyed Maze Runner the movie quite a bit.  It’s got a great pace, stunning visuals and strong performances all-around, but there are some significant differences between the book and the film and, simply put, the book does it better.  One of the biggest challenges of adapting a book to film is condensing it and more so than ever when you’re working with a narrative that goes down in a brand new environment like The Glade. Not only did director Wes Ball have to develop a Glade full of multidimensional characters, but he also had to set up a brand new world and convey the rules that govern it.  The situation is actually pretty straightforward – there are kids trapped in a maze and they have to figure out how to get out – but then you’re wondering, why are they there?  Who put them there?  What »

22 September 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After bringing in $81 million at the world wide box office, 20th Century Fox quickly announced the The Maze Runner sequel The Scorch Trials. While the sequel will not hit theaters for another year, the studio has released the first official concept art featuring an urban cityscape in ruin. This same art, as you may remember, was revealed this past summer at Comic-Con, but now we get an official hi-res look at it here:

The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials: Concept Art

The Maze Runner director Wes Ball will return to direct The Scorch Trials from a script by T.S. Nowlin, who co-wrote the first film with Noah Oppenheim and Grant Pierce Myers. No cast members are confirmed yet, but it seems likely that the main cast will return, including Dylan O'Brien, Aml Ameen, Ki Hong Lee, Blake Cooper, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario.

Concept art for The Maze Runner sequel, The Scorch Trials

21 September 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having blown past all the competition over the weekend, 20th Century Fox were quick to announce the sequel to The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials which is set to hit theatres less than a year from now on September 18th, 2015.

Check out the concept art here…

The Maze Runner took an impressive $32.5 million domestically and is currently sitting at $81.5 million worldwide against an estimated $34 million budget. Read our review here.

“Based on the best-selling young adult thriller, The Maze Runner is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where Thomas is deposited in a community of young men after his memory is erased. After learning they’re all trapped in a maze, Thomas joins forces with fellow “runners” to not only escape the maze, but solve its riddle and reveal the chilling secret of who brought them there, and why.”

The Maze Runner Sequel, The Scorch Trials, Set for September 18, 2015

21 September 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Maze Runner sprinted to a successful opening at the box office this weekend, and now 20th Century Fox is moving forward on the sequel, The Scorch Trials, which will be released on September 18, 2015.  The sequel was already in pre-production since director Wes Ball showed off some concept art at The Maze Runner’s Comic-Con panel this past July.  Additionally, work on the sequel script began almost a year ago.  For studios, the most important element to Ya franchises is speed, and as long as the debut is a success, the sequel is already loaded and ready to go.  We saw it with Divergent and Insurgent earlier this year.  On the flipside, don’t expect to see a sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones anytime ever. Hit the jump to check out The Scorch Trials concept art along with a synopsis for James Dashner’s novel of the same name. »

The Maze Runner Sequel The Scorch Trials Set for 2015 Release

21 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Maze Runner was released in the Us on Friday and an impressive opening of an estimated $32.5 million has resulted in 20th Century Fox announcing a 2015 release date for the sequel, The Scorch Trials.

The movie was only expected to earn quite a bit less than this, so the fact that it has exceeded expectations has clearly shown the studio that they have a hit on their hands (especially as it took $49 million overseas for a current worldwide total of $81.5 million). Reviews have also been mostly positive so far.

The Scorch Trials will be released on September 18th, 2015, under a year from now. That date means it will square off against Baltasar Kormákur’s Everest and the untitled Whitey Bulger biopic starring Johnny Depp.

Wes Ball will return to direct and shooting is expected to start soon. T.S. Nowlin also returns as writer.

New Maze Runner Movie Delivered Great Action,Drama,Suspense & More

20 September 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

20th Century Fox released their new action/adventure/thriller film, "The Maze Runner," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was highly entertaining and suspenseful as hell. I really dug the plotline too as it was very intriguing. The movie stars: Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter. In the new flick, character Thomas, shows up in a rusty elevator called The Box, and is greeted by other boys in a grassy clearing called the Glade, which is surrounded by tall, gray walls that enclose off the entrance to the maze. Thomas is unable to remember anything about himself, but Alby, the leader of the Glade, tells him that it's happened to everyone and that his name will come to him soon. Thomas is very curious about the maze, but is warned not to enter as no one has ever survived the maze throughout the night. »

'The Maze Runner': What the Critics Are Saying

19 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Visual effects artist Wes Ball makes his directorial debut on Friday with The Maze Runner — the post-apocalyptic Ya action film that follows a teenager who wakes up in a region with roughly 50 other boys and is surrounded by a deadly maze.

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

18 September 2014 9:04 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

In this day and age we, as a society, have become obsessed with the idea of a post-apocalyptic life. This has created an enormous output of post-apocalyptic young adult fiction titles. From I Am Legend to The Road, and from World War Z to The Hunger Games, these fiction titles have been transposed to film for the good of both movie fans and producers alike. The latest installment in this craze is The Maze Runner. The novel by James Dashner, on which the film is based, is the first book in a trilogy about a group of boys that live inside of a maze. Too vague?

The Maze Runner centers around Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), a young man without any memory, except for his name. He is thrown into the middle of “The Glade,” a society of only boys that exists in the center of a maze. Day in and day out, »

Box Office Preview: ‘Maze Runner’ To Put ‘Tombstones’ In Ground; ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Debuts

18 September 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Three new pictures bow this weekend with Fox’s sci-fi action thriller The Maze Runner leading the way. It opens tonight at 10 Pm, having already made a strong bow overseas to heavily outpace Divergent and gross $8.5M so far. After this weekend’s bow in the states, the picture will likely have grossed its production budget back — said to be around $35M+ but they got a tax incentive from shooting in Louisiana which brought the net cost down. That’s not including marketing and distribution costs, but this should be yet another profitable film for Fox (which has been on a roll). CGI was also handled out of the U.S. (in Vancouver) through a company called Method. Here’s the thing, Divergent was heavily skewed female so the question is will the boys come out for Fox the same way girls (who tend to go to movies in packs) came out for March 2014 release? »

18 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Maze Runner is on track to debut with $30 million or more—but is it worth seeing? The 20th Century Fox movie, in theaters tomorrow, was adapted from the first novel in James Dashner's best-selling trilogy. Directed by Wes Ball, it stars Dylan O'Brien as Thomas, a boy who wakes up trapped in a maze. The other boys there have created a society with three basic principles: be helpful, don't hurt anyone and don't go behind the walls. Thomas has no memory of the outside world other than dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. If he hopes to survive, his only option is to escape.
