Dashner: You see a few shots of things that are slightly changed from the book to make it a more immediate, visual, tangible experience. Sections of the maze that are varied, not all stone.
….A greasy, grimy, gooey device.
…Red laser-like lights. I don’t know how much I can say about those, but they are awesome and add so much to the film, while still keeping very true to the spirit of the book.
Dashner: My absolute favorite shot in the whole trailer, so indicative of Wes’s direction: When the newly arrived Teresa says, “Thomas!” and all the boys slowly look up at him, no subtlety in their accusatory eyes.
Dashner: There’s a very quick shot of Gally looking through a window, under water. I’m going to enjoy very much hearing my readers wonder what in the world that’s all about.
Dashner: I so love that quick shot of Minho screaming as the camera pans up on him.
