This is so awesome. Even though it’s not a live action shot this concept art for The Maze Runner is a very close second best. Nothing could be more important to convey than the sheer epic-ness of the walls of the maze, and this picture does the book justice.
So awesome. I could stare at this for hours. The filming is about to begin and we should see something soon I’m sure. Here’s the synopsis.
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.
The Maze Runner starring Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Kong Lee, Aml Ameenn and Blake Cooper is slated to hit theaters February 14, 2014.
