…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.
