Jack Sparrow finds himself in constant trouble with the law; not only is his name known from ocean to ocean, his face is now just as famous. With a reward of two hundred pounds Jack is being chased by bounty hunters once again. Not only are naval officers pursuing him, he also has a number of former rival captains hot on his heels too.
Captain Barbossa is now in control of the ship The Queen Anne's Revenge, after winning it from Captain Blackbeard and a long-time nemesis of Jack's called Captain Salazar who doesn't want to just kill Jack, he wants to kill every pirate on the sea in a bid to be once and for all to be total control over the oceans.
When Jack learns of Salazar's plan, the lovable rogue and Salazar go head to head in a race to retrieve a Trident that once belonged to the god of the oceans Poseidon. Whoever holds the trident controls the power of the sea and everything that lives in or sails on it.
With the film market arguably already saturated with teen dystopian movies, The Maze Runner is the latest to throw its hat into the overcrowded ring.
It's another month, and another group of teenagers is taking on yet another oppressive post-apocalyptic society. Based on the first in a trilogy (of course!) of books by James Dashner, The Maze Runner is slightly unique due to its decidedly male approach: three dozen boys trying to navigate an imposing conundrum. And the film even includes a cast of rising-stars who make it worth a look, including Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf), Will Poulter (We're the Millers) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually), plus Kaya Scodelario (Skins) in the token female role.
Dylan O'Brien stars in 'The Maze Runner'
Already this year, we've had Divergent with Shailene Woodley and The Giver with Brenton Thwaites, and next month we get the third instalment in the big mama of teen-dystopian movies: The Hunger Games with Jennifer Lawrence.
Continue reading: The Maze Runner Sends More Teens Into A Dystopian Challenge
There's nothing particularly original or insightful to set this teen-dystopia thriller apart from the crowd, but strong characters will build some anticipation for the next instalment in the franchise. Unusually for the genre, the film also has a remarkably masculine tone, centring on boyish jostling for control while leaving the women in just two small-but-pivotal roles. On the other hand, it's to thinly plotted that it's pretty forgettable.
The story opens in a scene of disorientation, as teen Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) emerges into the Glade, unable to remember anything about himself or his past. He's the monthly arrival to a community of boys anchored by Alby (Aml Ameen) and the runners who dash into the maze beyond the four tall walls that close in their isolated world. But the maze is full of dangers, and paranoid leader Gally (Will Poulter) thinks Thomas is jeopardising the status quo with his curiosity, bravery and desire to get out. As divisions appear in the community, the game itself seems to be changing as monsters called grievers become more aggressive. Thomas finds allies in Gally's second-in-command Newt (Brodie-Sangster), the lead runner Minho (Ki Hong Lee) and cheery youngster Chuck (Blake Cooper). Then a girl (Kaya Scodelario) arrives carrying a note that says, "She is the last one EVER." And now everyone knows that nothing will be the same again.
Essentially this is Lord of the Flies with the nasty bits taken out, as these boys create a relatively peaceful society until Thomas' arrival signals an apocalypse within the post-apocalypse. Through it all, Thomas has dreams revealing snippets of information about what's really going on here and who's pulling the strings (the fabulous Patricia Clarkson). Meanwhile, he has to learn the mythology of the Glade, which is carefully explained in painfully obvious dialogue ("That's what we call 'the changing'").

Aidan Gillen has been cast as the main protagonist in the sequel to 'The Maze Runner'.
Aidan Gillen, the actor best known for his role as Lord Petyr Baelish A.K.A. Littlefinger on Game of Thrones, has been cast as the villain in the upcoming sequel to The Maze Runner.
Aiden Gillen will appear in The Maze Runner sequel.
The movie based on James Dashner's novel looks set to beat Liam Neeson’s ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ for the box office top spot.
The Maze Runner is predicted to top the US box office this weekend, with estimated earnings of $24million. The young-adult thriller opened on Friday (September 20th) to mixed reviews, but it seems US moviegoers have chosen it this weekend over Liam Neeson’s latest offering, A Walk Among the Tombstones.
Dylan O'Brien leads the cast in The Maze Runner
Starring Dylan O'Brien of ‘Teen Wolf’ and ‘Skins’ Kaya Scoderlario, The Maze Runner is hoping to cash in on the popular young adult market, which made millions for franchises such as the Hunger Games and Twilight.
Can The Maze Runner live up to the expectations of so many fans?
The Maze Runner, an adaption of the first book in James Dashner's young-adult post-apocalyptic trilogy, hits theaters this weekend and appears to offer something more engaging than recent YA efforts, Divegent, The Giver and If I Stay.
Dylan O'Brien stars in 'The Maze Runner'
With a talented and energetic cast including Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Will Poulter, The Maze Runner follows sixteen-year-old Thomas, who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is or how he got there. He soon learns that he's in the middle of a complex and intricate maze with a group of other boys, each trying to navigate their way out while in the meantime establishing a functioning society.
Continue reading: 'The Maze Runner' Is The Best "Hunger Games Wannabe" Yet
After awakening in a rising elevator with no memory of who he is or what his life was, Thomas finds himself deposited in a strange clearing surrounded by high walls. He is greeted by around 60 other boys, all teenagers, who inform him about their life in The Glade where they are forced to fend for themselves in order to survive. The only escape is a colossal surrounding maze that is frequented everyday by the runners who map out the labyrinth in a bid to find their way out. However, of course nothing is that simple and the boys are not alone in there. Infesting the twists and turns are brutal creatures known as Grievers who will stop at nothing to wipe out the Glade inhabitants. Things get more complicated when the first girl arrives in their midst; the boys are reluctant to trust her especially with the unusual message she presents to them.

Thomas is a young teenager who suddenly awakens to find himself ascending in an elevator to an unknown destination. He has no memory of his life and arrives into a mysterious clearing surrounded by walls filled with around 60 other boys around his age. The clearing is known as The Glade and the inhabitants spend their days trying to survive on minimal resources while periodically venturing into the surrounding maze to look for an escape. Unfortunately, things aren't that simple as they discover that the maze is inhabited by deadly creatures known as Grievers, who are hellbent on destruction. Soon after Thomas' arrival, an unconscious girl is found in the elevator - the first girl to have ever been sent to the The Glade - with an unusual message, and it seems since both their arrivals, everyone's memories are getting a little clearer.

‘The Maze Runner’ could just become the biggest young adult movie of the year
The Maze Runner is set to be the young adult movie of the year when it hits theatres this September. Based on James Dashner’s sci-fi trilogy, the movie boasts a young, impressive cast of new names and rising stars. So lets take a closer look at some of the talented young actors who will be bringing The Maze Runner to life later this year.
Dylan O'Brein stars as Thomas in Maze Runner

'Teen Wolf' star Dylan O'Brien stars in the upcoming movie 'The Maze Runner', but is it a contender for the other young-adult movies?
Just as everyone was beginning to get really hyped up for Shailene Woodley's upcoming flick Divergent it looks like another movie may be just about to steal its thunder. You've got to act fast in this business (or you'll get hunted down, if these movies are anything to go by!). Based on the series by James Dashner, The Maze Runner certainly looks like it will be worthy of joining the list of big box office movies based on young adult books. Over the past few years movies aimed at a young adult audience, such as the Harry Potter series, Twilight franchise, The Hunger Games and currently Dviergent, have been vastly popular, drawing in huge audiences of young adults and adults alike. They've definitely become a guilty pleasure, whether you're 15 or 50 years old.
Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien will star in The Maze Runner
Starring Teen Wolf’s Dylan O’Brien, The Maze Runner seems to be a solid contender to challenge The Hunger Games and Divergent in action and story, although unlike the other two movies, this one has a male lead. We think we’ll allow a boy to take control for once, there has been a lot of girl power in movies lately, we feel like we've had our fix! Although no one could rival The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen in our eyes.
Continue reading: Is 'The Maze Runner' The Next Big Young-Adult Movie?
The Maze Runner could be the next big thing. You know, like Twilight, and, the others.
The Maze Runner is the latest young-adult novel to get a movie adaptation as studios become ever more convinced of the literary genre's ability to spawn megabucks franchises. The trailer for The Maze Runner - an adaptation of James Dashner's novel - aired during Monday's (March 17, 2014) Teen Wolf and caused quite the sir.
Will Dylan O'Brien Escape the Maze?
The movie stars Dylan O'Brien as Thomas, a young guy who finds himself trapped in the middle of a giant maze. The only way out is, of course, to figure out the complex passages. The problem with that solitary option is that nobody has ever found an exit and unmentionable horrors lie at every turn.

All grown up: new series of Skins sees the main characters as working adults.
Skin's Effy Stonem is hardly the kind of girl you'd expect to be working in business but here she is in series seven working ambitiously as a trader for a London hedge fund. The seventh and final series of E4's long-running Skins drama, entitles Skins Redux, is about to air in the UK. However now, the drug-taking, promiscuous, hedonistic days of youth for Effy, Cassie and Cook are long gone as they wrestle with the practicalities of adult life, such as holding down a stable job, the loneliness of the big city, and the resurfacing of the past.
Effy's Life Has Changed Incredibly Since Last Time We Saw Her.
The seventh series will be quite short - in just six parts - but will be divided into three stories following Cassie, Effy and Cook. Each part will be themed differently: 'Skins Pure', 'Skins Rise' and 'Skins Fire,' with a different character taking centre stage in each. The once reserved girl who went off the rails, Effy, brother to Tony Stonem (Nicholas Hoult), is followed through her job working for a hedge fund firm where she embarks on an affair with her boss; with things getting out of hand in typical Skins style, according to The Mirror. Cook (Jack O'Connell) is working as a drug dealer in Manchester but after he falls for a woman he really shouldn't, he is forced to confront his violent past.

Preteen girls will find this soppy romance unbearably romantic, but everyone else will struggle to sit through it. Based on the Jenny Downham novel Before I Die, the movie feels like a British variation on the Nicolas Sparks genre with its seaside locations and teary drama. It looks lovely, but is so emotionally manipulative that older viewers are more likely to roll their eyes than shed a tear.
Dakota Fanning stars as 17-year-old Tessa, known locally as the girl with leukaemia who opted out of treatment. She has a secret bucket list that her parents (Considine and Williams) know nothing about, and her best pal Zoey (Scodelario) is helping her work through, from committing petty crime to trying drugs. But sex is at the forefront of Tessa's mind, especially when she meets the dreamy new boy next door. Adam (Irvine) is a sensitive soul who is dealing with his own grief, so is perfectly suited to help Tessa face her own mortality.
Writer-director Parker shamelessly steers each scene into the desired emotion. Some sequences are cute and silly, while others are melodramatic and tense, but it's all so deliberate that we never have a sense of real life taking place. There isn't a single throwaway moment, which prevents the actors from creating complex characters. Instead, they spend much of the time gazing at each other wistfully. Fanning's iridescent blue eyes are mesmerising, while Irvine's quivering features are strikingly beautiful, but we're left wondering why we should be interested in these mopey teens.
Continue reading: Now Is Good Review
Tessa is like every other sixteen year old; she'd love a boyfriend and she'd like to lose her virginity as soon as possible. Her best friend Tessa encourages her wishes. There is a difference, however: Tessa has leukaemia. She was diagnosed with it four years ago but has recently learned that it is terminal.

When the farmer Earnshaw (Hilton) brings a street urchin (Howson) home after a trip to Liverpool, he adopts him as a son and has him christened Heathcliff. He bonds quickly with Earnshaw's daughter Catherine (Beer), but her older brother Hindley (Shaw) continually abuses him. This only gets worse after Earnshaw's death, and when Cathy decides to marry the rich neighbour Linton (Northcote), Heathcliff runs away. Years later, he returns (now Howson) to confront Cathy (now Scodelario) about her true feelings.
