The Maze Runner, a new film by Fox and Dayday Films, is a new film in what seems to be a trending list of young adult dystopian movies to be released recently. In these behind the scenes featurettes we can see a small glimpse at how they filmed the movie and how the special effects were created.
The movie was shot with the ARRI Alexa and RED Epic with Angenieux Optimo Lenses. The Maze Runner is also the first movie to be released on the new Xscape theaters. The new theaters will show movies in a cinerama (panoramic) format using three screens. The films that are not shot organically to fit the aspect ratios of the new theaters will stitch more to the film using special effects to fit the new screens.
