The Maze Runner, 2014.
Directed by Wes Ball.
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. »

With the Hunger Games franchise inching towards its close – albeit with the final book needlessly split into two films for sadly commercial reasons – the Young Adult movie throne will soon be vacant. Divergent had a so-so stab at the title earlier this year, with Shailene Woodley's charisma improving the sketchily explained narrative and sequels on the way.
But while the Veronica Roth adaptation was certain a cut above tried-and-failed Ya novel adaptations like Beautiful Creatures or The Mortal Instruments, it isn't the undisputed champion of the teen audience arena, just yet.
So could The Maze Runner become the 'next Twilight/Hunger Games/massive cash cow'? Well, it's a maybe.
In this dystopian (well, of course) tale, sixteen-year-old boy Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) awakes in an elevator, which rises into a grass clearing – surrounded by ominous towering walls. He's got no memory of whom he is or why he might have »

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 »
Director: Wes Ball.
Running Time: 113 minutes
Synopsis: Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.
In a time where Young Adult adaptations are proving pretty popular with audiences, it’s not too surprising to see The Maze Runner running all the way to the big screen. In the film, the arrival of Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) messes with the fragile balance of a small community of boys stuck in the centre of a maze with no memory of what has come before.
As he gets to know the camp’s inhabitants, Thomas starts to ask questions rather than wait for answers and his inquisitive nature rubs some of the camp the wrong way. »
