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.

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.

Game of Thrones season 3 is on it’s way, and if the dark television adverts aren’t enough to convince you, then the new trailer will have to do. And it’s good; oh it’s good. If you thought seasons 1 and 2 were big, then it’s about to get bigger.
We’ve only got around a month to go before the season three premiere, so HBO have really made us wait for this trailer. But now it’s here, we can’t wait to see some epic sword sinking action. This new season will see 14 – that’s right – 14 new cast members for the show.

Brick, McQueen and Lincoln Oodie are three trigger-happy redneck brothers who work for a corrupt sheriff of their town, taking down criminals in unlawful ways. After accidentally taking out the residents at an address that turns out to be wrong, they are offered $25,000 by Celeste Martin who asks them to retrieve her kidnapped handicapped godson Rob from her violent ex-husband Carlos who believes she is dead. He killed Rob's parents and had Celeste shot when he discovered he had a large sum of money in a trust that matured when he hit 18. The Oodies think of their mission as a simple smash and grab but things become less easy when Carlos sets a gang of gorgeous but deadly women on them, as well as a group of Federal agents and various other psychopaths hell bent on killing the brothers. While previously seeking fun in lawless battles to the death, the Oodie outlaws soon find themselves questioning themselves and their careers as they do everything in their power to protect the boy from harm, and not just for their own gain.
Comedy action just doesn't get any better than 'The Baytown Outlaws' and is a wonderful feature length movie debut from director Barry Battles and his co-writer Griffin Hood. It will hit theaters in January 2013 after being released On-Demand Nationwide on December 4th 2012.

But our hero had a job to do, and he never shied away from danger. He swallowed his fear, hopped into his silver, gas-fueled chariot, and sped off through the rain and inky darkness to the multiplex, that house of horrors where Cedric the Entertainer and John Travolta lurked. The critic pushed open the heavy doors and made his fateful way to face off against Nanny McPhee.
