Another YA franchise yo. Based on the first book in a young-adult dystopian science fiction trilogy of the same name by James Dashner.
Shortest synopsis I could find:
"The Maze Runner" centers around teen Thomas, 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."
At least this one has a male protagonist.
Directed by Wes Ball. Starring Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Pouter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Patricia Clarkson.

Am I the only one that thinks he faintly resembles a young Kevin Bacon?

Release date has been moved to 19 September 2014 (previously was set for feb). I'm assuming for marketing reasons.

I have read the books and they are pretty amazing. I didn't liked the ending though. I'm looking forward to see this movie, but it's been delayed a lot. They have been filming and working on it forever.
