The Maze Runner Isn't Greedy, Won't Split Final Book Into 2 Films

Weekend Box Office: The Maze Runner Takes Top Spot
The Maze Runner, based on yet another series of young adult books set in a sci-fi-ish, post-apocolyptic-ish world took first place, but only banked $32 million. That's a modest showing at best, well short of openings like Divergent's $54 million debut in March and the hugely successful Hunger Games franchise and its triple digit bow ins. Still, Maze Runner's $32 million start isn't bad when compared with its equally modest budget of $34 million, making it a viable, if not wildly successful, financial franchise.

I Just Saw The Future Of Movie Theaters And It Is Weird
When it comes to budding filmmaker technology, creating an immersive theatrical experience is the name of the game.

Patricia Clarkson Joins The Maze Runner
Patricia Clarkson won me over the moment she looked into John Coffey's eyes and told him, "I dreamed you were wandering in the dark. And so was I. And we found each other. We found each other in the dark."

"Mostly guys."
