One of the movies under most people’s radar is director Wes Ball‘s The Maze Runner. Based on the James Dashner’s young adult novel of the same name, the story centers on a group of teens who appear in an area known as “The Glade” but have no memory when they wake up. The only way out appears to be through a shifting maze of massive walls that harbor dangerous creatures known as Grievers. Only one of the teens, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), holds the secret to their escape. With the film hitting theaters February 14, 2014, you can expect a trailer in the coming months, and a lot more info on the film. Until then…you’ll just have to trust me when I say it’s a film that could be very cool.
While at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive interview with O’Brien. He talked about being the lead in a movie for the first time, making Maze Runner, the tough shoot, what will surprise fans of the book, Comic-Con, the success of Teen Wolf, DreamWorks’ Glimmer, and more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
The day after the hugely entertaining Comic-Con panel for MTV’s Teen Wolf (here’s our recap), we had the chance to sit down for roundtable interviews with creator/executive producer Jeff Davis and stars Tyler Posey, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, and Tyler Hoechlin. We discussed everything from character motivation and background, to the kitsune mythology of the second half of this season, to Posey’s very recent engagement.

MTV’s Teen Wolf has been pulling no punches lately, growing more intense and more complex with every episode. Now halfway through the first part of its super-sized third season, cast and creator took to the stage at Comic-Con to exuberant cheers, screams, and shouted declarations of love.
Creator and executive producer Jeff Davis joined the eight Teen Wolf stars in attendance, Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechlin, Daniel Sharman, Max Carver, and Charlie Carver. The panel included a trailer for upcoming episodes, a release date and some plot hints for the second part of season three, a surprise guest star, what the cast would call spin-off shows starring their characters, favorite comedic scenes, and much more.

The first images have been released from the The Maze Runner. Based on the James Dashner’s young adult novel of the same name, the story centers on a group of teens who appear in an area known as “The Glade” but have no memory when they wake up. The only way out appears to be through a shifting maze of massive walls that harbor dangerous creatures known as Grievers. Only one of the teens, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), holds the secret to their escape. The Hunger Games comparisons are inevitable (groups of teenagers fighting for their lives in a dangerous locale), which is a bit unfair, but that’s the advantage The Hunger Games has by being the most popular and the first to hit theaters. Based on these images, I’m not seeing too much of what will make The Maze Runner stand out, but we’re still a long way from knowing what the finished film will have to offer.

Last year I got to visit the set when they were filming in Atlanta, and I watched the cast film a very funny scene featuring everyone getting to know one another. In take after take, I saw the way Vaughn, Wilson and Levy would slightly adjust the dialogue and reactions so they’d have plenty of choices in the editing room. In addition, it was great to see the cast and crew try and hold it together until Levy called cut. As soon as he did, the room lit up with laughter. Based on what I saw and learned on set, I think The Internship is going to be a winner. Hit the jump for the images.
