Adaptations of young adult novels are obviously big business, and since San Diego Comic-Con last month, 20th Century Fox has been building steam behind their upcoming dystopian sci-fi joint The Maze Runner, based on James Dashner’s best-selling book of the same name. Now that we’re just over a month away from the release (which was pushed back from February of this year), they’ve started to step things up, and we now have three new TV spots and a new clip.
This first video gives you all of the pertinent information. There’s a place called the Glade, it’s enclosed by high concrete walls that open every morning to reveal an ever changing maze, and no one knows who they are, why they’re here, or anything about the outside world. When a new boy named Thomas (Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien) shows ups, it signals great changes in both their situation and their approach to finding a way out.
