Early Buzz: The Maze Runner Fan Reactions Are Overwhelmingly Positive

Wes Ball's big-screen adaptation of The Maze Runner had a secret fan screening on Thursday night at Comic-Con. No press or critics were in attendance, but we can take a look at the early buzz coming from the fan tweets. As you probably know, The Maze Runner is based on a young adult book about a group of teenagers who are stuck in the Glade, a living space that lies in the middle of a maze. This maze opens up during the daytime and closes at night, and the walls periodically shift into new configurations. The first "glader" emerged into the Glade and maze three years ago, and a new glader has appeared once a month since then. After the jump we have collected a bunch of The Maze Runner fan reactions from twitter.
