20th Century Fox has released a new The Maze Runner trailer for director Wes Ball’s adaptation of the James Dashner novel.  The story revolves around a teenager who wakes up in the middle of a maze with no memory of who he is, surrounded by other teenage boys who also don’t know who they are, where they are, or what the maze is either.  As stakes continue to mount, though, they realize they must find a way out before it’s too late.  The trailer showcases some of the maze’s more evil tricks while keeping the story close to the vest. At least for those of us who haven’t read the book. Since I haven’t read it, I have no idea how these images compared to those described in the novel, but I like what I’m seeing.

The film stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, and Patricia Clarkson.  The Maze Runner opens in theaters on September 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Maze Runner:

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.”
