Ending on October 16: “MAZE RUNNER” — This new action thriller is based on the bestselling book. When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Anyone who dares enter the maze risks their life as the maze changes shapes and is patrolled by deadly creatures. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. “Maze Runner” is held over through Thursday, October 16 at the Dells Theatre. 113 minutes. It’s rated PG-13 for thematic elements and intense sequences of sci-fi violence, including some disturbing images.
Starts on October 17: “THE BOXTROLLS” — This new animated family adventure is about underground creatures that are on the path to being exterminated and the boy who saves them. The comedic fable unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least, that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs, since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. When the Boxtrolls are targeted by villainous pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), who is bent on eradicating them as his ticket to Cheesebridge society, the kindhearted band of tinkerers must turn to their adopted charge and adventurous rich girl Winnie (Elle Fanning) to bridge two worlds amidst the winds of change. “The Boxtrolls” starts Friday and is scheduled for one week, October 17-23 at the Dells Theatre. 96 minutes. It’s rated PG for action, some peril and mild humor.
