Other than it being the age of superheroes, there’s also the epidemic of the YA book adaptations. Twilight, The Hunger Games, and The Divergent Series are all examples of the young adult genre. The latest adaptation is The Maze Runner, another best-selling YA book that has hit the big screen. So what does that mean exactly? Well, that Screen Junkies is going to give it their ‘Honest Trailers’ treatment, check it out below.
I for one enjoyed The Maze Runner, actually putting it in the second slot behind The Hunger Games in that YA category. Don’t get me wrong, The Hunger Games is pretty far ahead of it, but I was pleasantly surprised by The Maze Runner.
With that said, there’s nothing I can do but laugh at what Screen Junkies have done with this trailer. Although I was personally okay with some of the things that they make fun of in the trailer, they did hit it on the head and give me a good laugh, that’s for sure.
The Maze Runner is now out on Blu-ray and DVD. The sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, is now in production with a September 18th, 2015 release date.
