“Day one, Greenie. Rise and Shine.”

I’ve been off my blog game so this isn’t new, but better late than never, right?

The first official trailer for The Maze Runner was released a couple weeks ago and I’m diggin’ it. As I mentioned in my review of the book trilogy, I really think this is going to be one of those rare cases where the movie is better than the book.

Reasons that I’m hopeful: 

  • Dylan O’Brien as Thomas. Dylan’s acting on Teen Wolf has been ON POINT lately. Like, chills-inducing amazing. He can carry this movie and then some.
  • Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt. Thomas currently plays Jojen on Game of Thrones. Needless to say, they don’t cast hacks on Game of Thrones. 
  • Better decision  making in general. At the 1:10 mark of the trailer below, Teresa shows up conscious and immediately recognizes Thomas–which immediately raises the suspicions of everyone else. This is so much more impactful than the way it’s handled in the book. I’m usually a stickler for source material, but I’m hopeful the movie can fill the gaps the book leaves behind.
