The first trailer for “Teen Wolf” star Dylan O’Brien’s sci-fi drama thriller “The Maze Runner” is available for our viewing pleasure. The film is an adaptation from a 2009 best-selling book of the same name by James Dashner. The clip features O’Brien’s character Thomas, as he wakes up in a lift that takes him to a place he has never seen before. The strange place is a giant Labyrinth called The Glade that seems to host dangerous creatures and other kids. We also get to see a glimpse of a mysterious girl who showed up in the lift. It seems that only boys are sent to The Glade but now they are joined by the mysterious girl who called Thomas by his name when she first arrived. The boys can’t remember how and why they are there, but now they are faced with the ever-changing maze as they seek freedom.

“The Maze Runner” synopsis (via collider.com):

“Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that 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 the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade.”

O’Brien is joined by “Skins” actress Kaya Scodelario in the lead role. They are supported by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter and Jacob Latimore. “The Maze Runner” is set to be released on September 19.
