Never Stop Running. Along with the new trailer today, 20th Century Fox has been unleashing handfuls of new posters for The Maze Runner adaptation, a sci-fi thriller about a bunch of kids locked in a gigantic, elaborate, futuristic maze. Earlier in the week we ran the theatrical poster, now we have a batch of 8+ stylish alternate posters for the film (and they're worth taking a look at). The artwork highlights two main themes: running, and mazes, and often integrates both of those into one image. Some of these are better than others, but overall I'm quite impressed with the marketing, and I'm hoping these will build interest with audiences.
Thanks to Yahoo for most of these and to IMPAwards as well. Here are other posters for The Maze Runner:
Last but not least, two character posters showing Kaya Scodelario & Ki Hong Lee in The Maze Runner.
Be sure to watch the latest trailer here and stay tuned for additional updates from the director @WesBall.
The Maze Runner marks the feature directorial debut of Wes Ball (of Ruin), working from a script by Noah Oppenheim and James Dashner (who wrote the book on which the film is based). The story follows teen Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is, only to learn 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 while establishing a functioning society in what they call The Glade. Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter and more star in the film arriving on September 19th, 2014.
The orange one is good. I will be very interested in seeing how this performs. As it is clear mountains of money are being spent on marketing.

The WCKD IS GOOD poster is going to really confuse people without context. I completely understand why you wouldn't go with it. Unless you read the book you don't know what it is.
