Set in the future where humanity now treads, “The Maze Runner” brings together a group of boys with the exception of one girl in a virtual prison called the Glade where they are mysteriously delivered into to find out who’s the best and fittest - their strength, emotion and intelligence are tested by a covert group of researchers to see who will last in a post-apocalyptic world outside the Glade.
Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) enters the Glade with nary a memory of himself except for his name. Once inside the Glade, he is equally welcomed and scorned by the boys that have been there ahead of him. Naturally curious, Thomas begins to question their entrapment and starts to find a way out through a dangerous maze within the Glade where massive walls are built that keeps on changing paths every single day. Along with the elite of runners named Minho (played by Ki Hong Lee), Thomas runs the maze in the morning before the predators, known as the Grievers, come out.
Based on the bestselling book for young adults by James Dashner (of the same title), “The Maze Runner” is a non-stop thrilling adventure escape from the unknown. Meanwhile, before entering the world of “The Maze Runner,” Minho, the leader of the runners have prepared a manual and prayer for the audience set to join the run on September 17 in cinemas.
Endow us with speed and agility to navigate through the Maze
Help us to protect and defend our family in the Glade
From the narrows to the blades and back may you guide us safely before the walls close
When we are in harm’s way, protect us from the Griever sting.
Grant us victory and lasting peace
So that our running may not have been in vain
If not here in the Glade, out there at a better place.
NEVER STOP RUNNING, ALWAYS BE ALERT, BRING BACK HOPE
