The Maze Runner is an American science fiction movie helmed by Wes Ball, in his debut as a director. The movie is based on the 2009 novel by James Dashner. When Maze Runner was released, it was a huge success grossing over $345 million worldwide at the box office, against a budget of $34 million.
It follows a teenage boy named Thomas played by Dylan O’Brien, who wakes up in a worn-out elevator with no recollection of his identity, soon realizing that he’s in the middle of a complex maze, along with several other young boys, who attempt to get out from there of the puzzling maze that seems to have no end at all– while creating an operational community known as the Glade. The movie features Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter, and Patricia Clarkson.
