Another YA book is heading to the big screen! The first in James Dashner’s trilogy, the film adaptation of The Maze Runner releases worldwide on September 19, 2014 (find your country’s release date here) after it was pushed back from its initial date of February 14, 2014. The film was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over the Summer of 2013 and fans have had radio silence from the creative team as far as stills and trailers are concerned. Not anymore!
Yes, the trailer will be shown during Teen Wolf. But it’ll also be released first on Fox’s YouTube channel. Not sure when. #mazerunner—

The first trailer makes its debut tonight during MTV’s Teen Wolf, which airs its third season finale tonight. Fans of Teen Wolf will surely recognize their beloved Stiles Stilinski in The Maze Runner as Dylan O’Brien plays the lead, Thomas, and is joined by other young up and comers. Check out their character stills below which were released last year to promote a Twitter chat with the cast.
(*Note that the release date on these character cards is the older one)
The summary for the film reads as follows –
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, young 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.
As we gear up toward the trailer release, the Facebook page has started releasing a stream of new stills featuring the glade and the gladers, as well as the mysterious girl Teresa, who is transported into the boys only glade.
The marketing team has also released a gif of Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) looking around the glade, trapped inside the four walls.
If the above gif is anything to go by … the trailer is going to be SHUCKING EPIC and we can’t wait for it! Make sure you are subscribed to FOX’s YouTube channel to be watch the trailer the minute it is uploaded. Can’t wait? You betcha … the fate of Dylan O’Brien’s character on Teen Wolf added to the anticipation of watching The Maze Runner trailer for the first time – you guys, some one needs to hold me … SHIZZ is going down tonight! Oh and Oh … that is not it … check out the first poster for the film, which was also released today!
And if that is not enough to satisfy your thirst for the trailer tonight … check out the following stills from the film.
Also don’t forgot … you can be a part of WICKED (or rather W.C.K.D. for the film) and keep your eyes on the boys on this surveillance website.
In the meantime – that is before the September release – catch up on your reading with The Maze Runner trilogy and its prequel. The books in the series and the order to read are – The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, The Kill Order.
What are your expectations for the trailer tonight? Do you think we will see the grievers or hear some of the Glade slang that I have come to use since reading the book? Well … whatever we see … I’m pretty sure we’ll be here fangirling … so don’t forget to check back tomorrow when we post our Trailer Reaction! Happy waiting Gladers!
Have you read The Maze Runner?
A very exciting New Year’s for the #VAfamily as they got their first official clip from the upcoming movie.
Sami has nailed it. She’s got all sides of Mia we were hoping she would achieve. That vulnerability bubbling under the bitchy surface. I hope that settles people’s angst over her hair – we love this Mia!
Okay… DRAGOZERA FEELS. Lucy as Lissa gave us chills. And the way Christian protects her?
Dominic is just perfect. Defensive and sexy. Swoon…
Rose! The way she just swoops in there… Zoey is absolutely flawless. #HathawaySwag
And of course, the Rose-Mia punch to the nose. This clip was edited, so we can’t wait to see the full scene! A fan-favorite on the big screen. 🙂
“I’ll fire-magic you into ASH!”
“Allow me, Mr Ozera.”
“Why are you Dragomirs SUCH drags?!”
With just over a month left to wait until this highly anticipated movie hits the cinemas, we are very happy with this first look at footage!
Thank you to Lucy Fry Source for uploading the clip for international viewers.
So many VA feels! If you haven’t died yet, wait for it… This could finish you off.
EW have released 5 new HD stills from the upcoming movie, Vampire Academy, here.
Be sure to check out Director Mark Waters’ captions for some insight into these scenes.
Zoey Deutch looking badass as Rose Hathaway.
”This is a little bit of a leap off the book,” teases Vampire Academy director Mark Waters, ”but Rose has a brief moment where she has a chance to kill a Strigoi, but then she hesitates because she’s still a novice, and fails to go through with it. I have to keep it a little cryptic because I don’t want to reveal too many things that happen in the movie, but it is her brief moment of trying to do something, but her training is not quite up to it yet.”
BEWARE: DRAGOZERA FEELS. Dominic Sherwood and Lucy Fry getting all snuggly as Christian and Lissa.
”If you know the story between Christian and Lissa, they have an attraction and Rose tries to sabotage the relationship,” explains Waters, ”but then when they come to the dance is when they come together for the first time and actually bend to the fact that they like each other and want to be boyfriend/girlfriend. So it’s a very nice moment where they realize they’re allowed to be together.”
”This is an interesting one because there’s a running gag in the movie where Rose tries to surprise attack Dimitri, and this is the first time she tries to do it,” previews Waters. ”She says, ‘I should have had you!’ And he says, ‘Well, keep it up. Keep trying to attack. It’s good training for both of us.’ But the tension of this moment is nice because after he tackles her and pins her down, they realize, ‘Wait a second. I’m still holding you down. And we’re still really close to each other.’ It’s a bit of an uncomfortable, awkward, romantic moment when they realize that they’re this close to each other and they have to kind of quickly disengage.”
The beginning of a beautiful, albeit forbidden, romance. Zoey and Danila, ladies and gentlemen.
”[Dimitri is] kind of her mentor and trainer,” says Waters. ”Rose comes back to the academy after having missed a year from training and is kind of out of shape and not as impressive as she once was. But after him taking her under his wing and really busting her in training, she gets better and better at these martial-arts moves that she’ll need later.”
And with every teen movie, comes High School cliques. Aaron, Mia and Camille, played by Edward Holcroft, Sami Gayle and Bronté Norman-Terrell.
”This is actually a moment right when Mia is playing a prank on Lissa,” explains Waters. ”It’s Lissa’s first day of school after coming back to the academy, and she’s leaning down to have a drink at the water fountain. And Mia — who’s a water magic user — causes the water fountain to explode and completely splatter her face and clothes.”
Thanks to both EW and Mark Waters for this amazing article!
