Following their supposed escape from the monster infested maze, the surviving Gladers led by Thomas are taken to an underground facility in the wake of a devastating solar flare known as The Scorch that has left the vast majority of the population infected with a disease called the Flare, but little do they know they are about to enter Phase Two.

It's difficult to argue with the results of this year's MTV Movie Awards victors, who took home their much-deserved accolades on Sunday (April 12th 2015). The top prize of Movie Of The Year went to Josh Boone's adaptation of the John Green novel 'The Fault In Our Stars' - but who else won big at the 2015 ceremony?

Shailene Woodley took home a couple of awards herself; first for Best Female Performance in 'The Fault In Our Stars', and second for Best Kiss with Ansel Elgort. 'The Maze Runner' star Dylan O'Brien also won big, landing Breakthrough Performance, Best Hero and, of course, Best Fight with Will Poulter. O'Brien will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. Meanwhile, Zac Efron's abs in 'Neighbors' predictably won him Best Shirtless Performance, while his onscreen chemistry with Dave Franco made them Best Duo. 'Neighbors' was also the winner of Best WTF Moment, with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne taking home the award.

The Maze Runner Sends More Teens Into A Dystopian Challenge


Dylan O'Brien Thomas Sangster Will Poulter Kaya Scodelario

It's another month, and another group of teenagers is taking on yet another oppressive post-apocalyptic society. Based on the first in a trilogy (of course!) of books by James Dashner, The Maze Runner is slightly unique due to its decidedly male approach: three dozen boys trying to navigate an imposing conundrum. And the film even includes a cast of rising-stars who make it worth a look, including Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf), Will Poulter (We're the Millers) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually), plus Kaya Scodelario (Skins) in the token female role.

The Maze Runner Review


OK

There's nothing particularly original or insightful to set this teen-dystopia thriller apart from the crowd, but strong characters will build some anticipation for the next instalment in the franchise. Unusually for the genre, the film also has a remarkably masculine tone, centring on boyish jostling for control while leaving the women in just two small-but-pivotal roles. On the other hand, it's to thinly plotted that it's pretty forgettable.

The story opens in a scene of disorientation, as teen Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) emerges into the Glade, unable to remember anything about himself or his past. He's the monthly arrival to a community of boys anchored by Alby (Aml Ameen) and the runners who dash into the maze beyond the four tall walls that close in their isolated world. But the maze is full of dangers, and paranoid leader Gally (Will Poulter) thinks Thomas is jeopardising the status quo with his curiosity, bravery and desire to get out. As divisions appear in the community, the game itself seems to be changing as monsters called grievers become more aggressive. Thomas finds allies in Gally's second-in-command Newt (Brodie-Sangster), the lead runner Minho (Ki Hong Lee) and cheery youngster Chuck (Blake Cooper). Then a girl (Kaya Scodelario) arrives carrying a note that says, "She is the last one EVER." And now everyone knows that nothing will be the same again.

Essentially this is Lord of the Flies with the nasty bits taken out, as these boys create a relatively peaceful society until Thomas' arrival signals an apocalypse within the post-apocalypse. Through it all, Thomas has dreams revealing snippets of information about what's really going on here and who's pulling the strings (the fabulous Patricia Clarkson). Meanwhile, he has to learn the mythology of the Glade, which is carefully explained in painfully obvious dialogue ("That's what we call 'the changing'").

'The Maze Runner' Records One of Biggest September Openings, Ever


Dylan O'Brien

Young-adult adaptation The Maze Runner outpaced the competition at the box-office this weekend to record one of the biggest September openings ever. With $32.5 million , the movie is now sixth - just behind Rush Hour - in all-time best openers for the month and Fox will be hugely satisfied with those numbers.

The movie also opened overseas last weekend and so should be looking at a total haul of around $81.5 million so far - that's without the UK and China markets, where The Maze Runner is yet to open. The next instalment of the movie - The Mazer Runner 2: Scorch Trials, is ready to takes its bow on September 18, 2015.

The Maze Runner - Alternative Trailer


After awakening in a rising elevator with no memory of who he is or what his life was, Thomas finds himself deposited in a strange clearing surrounded by high walls. He is greeted by around 60 other boys, all teenagers, who inform him about their life in The Glade where they are forced to fend for themselves in order to survive. The only escape is a colossal surrounding maze that is frequented everyday by the runners who map out the labyrinth in a bid to find their way out. However, of course nothing is that simple and the boys are not alone in there. Infesting the twists and turns are brutal creatures known as Grievers who will stop at nothing to wipe out the Glade inhabitants. Things get more complicated when the first girl arrives in their midst; the boys are reluctant to trust her especially with the unusual message she presents to them.
