The Maze Runner
Written by James Dashner
Starring: Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario
Why You Should Watch: This Young Adult trilogy became a sensation after its publication in 2009. The movie was originally set to be released in February of 2014 but they pushed the release date back in order to add more special effects. So not only will the plot of this book turned movie be exceptional, but the effects will be amazing as well. And even if they don't enjoy the movie, teenage girls across the country will be happy just to be able to stare at Dylan O'Brien's face for a couple hours. #Truth
