'The Maze Runner' Pictures: Welcome to the Dystopian Labyrinth

Fans of MTV's "Teen Wolf" — brace yourself, your favorite Beacon Hills student and werewolf sidekick is back. But this time, he's got a lot more to worry about than supernatural drama and canine mysteries.

Dylan O'Brien (aka "Teen Wolf's" Stiles) has been busy with his newest role as Thomas in "The Maze Runner", an upcoming dystopian drama based on James Dashner's bestselling young-adult novel.

The post-apocalyptic tale begins when Thomas wakes up in a rusty elevator after his memory has been erased. Per MTV News, Thomas soon realizes that "he's been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they've come to call 'The Glade.'"

If this sorta plot sounds awfully familiar to you, you're not alone. The teenage-post-apocalyptic-dystopian-drama is all the craze now, with films like "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", "Divergent", and "Ender's Game" all hitting theaters within the next year.

As noted in the video above, MTV has just released five first-look images from the film. Get ready to see some hot teens battle it out against their captors in these exclusive stills:
