While there are countless young adult book-to-film adaptations, few could compete with flicks like Hunger Games!
Could The Maze Runner be the next YA franchise or will its opening weekend be a dud??!
The reviews are in, but The Guardian's Jordan Hoffman might've said it best:
"..After years (years!) of having our standards systematically lowered by a ceaseless tsunami of Young Adult adaptations, The Maze Runner's spry pace is noticeable and appreciated."
But wait…he wasn't done there.
"The filmmaking, unfortunately, leaves much to be desired. The score is horrendous, and the sound design hasn't an ounce of subtlety. The overall production design—including the opening titles—looks a lot more like TV than a feature film."
However, New York Magazine's Blige Ebiri said he was "quite riveted."
If we want to figure out the possibilty of success based on film adaptations' past, we can see that Katniss Everdeen got RAVE review, but Twilight was unanimously SLAMMED and it broke records.
Predicting this box office is trickier than the maze in the movie! LOLz!
Really, it's all up to the fans! Will readers be grabbing the popcorn this Friday to observe life in The Glades??!
