Fake Movie Meme: Labyrinth
Requested by: grantairehair
Inspired by: Spaceman by the Killers
Starring: Keira Knightley, Arthur Darvill, Uma Thurman, and Dominic Cooper
The Gamemaker built the Labyrinth to hide his greatest treasure. Every third year, the Council randomly selects two young people to play out the Labyrinth and try their hands at reaching its very center. No one has ever reached the center of the Labyrinth. No one has ever survived.
In the capital city, Anne (played by Keira Knightley) is awoken by a bright light shining in her eyes. She’s ripped out of her bed and thrown into the transporter. The her life as a promising diplomat suddenly becomes obsolete as her journey to the Labyrinth begins.
Miles away, Danny (played by Arthur Darvill) is taken from his farm and his family. He wife and two children scream after him as the transporter carries him away.
Without instruction and without warning, Danny and Anne are dropped into the Labyrinth. The only thing they know is that they somehow need to reach the center of the maze. That will be a nearly impossible task as there are monsters, traps, and a seemingly endless number of things the would like to kill them.
It does not help that Anne and Danny find it difficult to work together. Anne is not a team player, and Danny struggles to see her point of view. He has a wife and children he longs to return to and she has nothing but her job. Anne, a born fighter, fits right into this hostile, new world. Unfortunately, she struggles with Danny who, to her, appears to be a dead weight she must carry to the end. These two different individuals must learn to work together if they are going to succeed.
In the Labyrinth, they come into contact with past players (Dominic Cooper and Uma Thurman) who have somehow managed to survive in the hostile world for years. Danny and Anne will need to convince them to help if they hope to find the Gamemaker’s treasure and return home.
I believe you typify our first meeting as “the most awkward dance ever”.
