Every month, a boy is carried up an elevator into a glade. He has no memory, no purpose, no place, but a maze surrounds the glade and its mysteries beckon. The Maze Runner is a high-tension, thrill ride of a film based on the excellent young adult book by James Dashner. Feeling like a mix of Lost and The Lord of the Flies, it does a great job of pulling the audience in and not letting you go until the credits roll. While it has its flaws, its benefits outweigh its faults and I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes films like The Hunger Games.
One of the better books I've read (new ones anyway) in recent years was Ready Player One. It's a science fiction novel, filled to the brim with video game lore and pop culture references. In essence, it's the perfect read for nerds of all varieties, with a genuinely engaging story and characters. Before the book even released, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to turn the book into a film, but since then hasn't done anything with it. Now, it looks like WB is finally getting serious as they've hired a new writer to work on the script.
If you were a fan of this year's movie adaptation of Veronic Roth's Divergent book featuring teens in a dystopic future (because that's the way it is folks in the Young Adult realm), then you'll be excited to hear that the cast is back together for the official start of filming on the sequel, Insurgent!
Entertainment Weekly has released 3 new pictures from The Hunger Games, which focuses on the two main male characters in the story: Peeta and Gale. After seeing pics of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, it's good to see the other characters...but something is definitely off.
