Meet the Runners in Five New Character Posters for The Maze Runner

The Maze Runner comes out in only two weeks, and in anticipation the studio has released five new character posters.

 

The posters feature Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien as Thomas, Skins's Kaya Scodelario as Teresa, Game of Thrones's Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt, Ki Hong Lee as Minho, and Will Poulter as Gally. The film, based on the 2009 novel by James Dashner, follows Thomas as he wakes in a place called the Glade with no memories aside from his name. He learns that he is trapped in the center of a giant maze with a few dozen other teenage boys, and that giant walls protect them from terrifying mechanical creatures called Grievers. Approximately once a month, a new boy is sent through an elevator to the Glade, but at the beginning of the film Teresa becomes the first female Glader, with a supernatural connection to Thomas and the inscrutable message that she is the "last one ever." Newt is Thomas's friend, and a former Runner, the boys' name for the ones who venture into the maze and try to find a way out. Thomas becomes a Runner when he ventures into the maze to save a trapped Minho from Grievers. Gally is the most antagonistic of the Gladers, and has an inexplicable antipathy towards Thomas.

A new TV spot was also released yesterday, which explores the backstory of the mysterious premise. "Every year, thousands of people disappear. Some simply vanish, but a few are chosen."
