The first clip of upcoming sci-fi adaptation The Maze Runner has been released, revealing a few clues about the film's direction.

Starring Kaya Scodelario, who's been off-radar since her role as messed-up teen bitch heartthrob Effy in Skins, we see her return to the big screen alongside Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Sir Mincealot Dylan O'Brien.

The clip introduces teenager Thomas (O'Brien), who wakes up in a place called "The Glade" with no memory of how he got there. Alby, the leader of The Gladers (get it?) warns him never to step into the mysterious maze beyond.

The directors have made no bones about wanting a Hunger Games feel: the color palette is identical, for one. And though Scodelario doesn't feature in the clip in question, we can imagine that her awkward sex appeal is going to be amped up in the same way as J-Law's. Warrior girls unite!

Heroines aside, it looks to be a potentially intriguing adaptation, and with 3 more books in the series, there's no prizes for guessing whether there'll be a sequel.
