The Maze Runner Movie

Actor Dylan O’Brien has opened up about “The Maze Runner” movie, which is arriving in theaters on September 19, 2014. The movie is based on the novel by the same name, which is part of a four-book series.

Dylan plays the character Thomas, and he opened up about the movie, revealing:

I’d like to be brave like Thomas. The film goes in the direction of a dystopian, but it is very apocalyptic. Someone compared it to ‘Lord of the Flies’, but that movie shows the bad, and in my film, the good. I love the books of the saga, I grew up with them. It may sound apocalyptic, but in the end only serves to bring out the way in which people react.

We loved the first book in the series, but we didn’t totally love the next two novels and how they were totally different than the first book. We’re reading the prequel right now.
