Yahoo! Movies has gotten their hands on a brand new The Maze Runner poster and it is an all-out fight for survival.

20th Century Fox debuted the new eye-candy this morning at SDCC hoping to sail on all the hype this weekend, and boy, does it look like it's working.

The poster gives us an almost aerial view of the formidable labyrinth, ancient-looking with its moss-covered walls. The truly terrifying question is what is in between those stone hedges swinging from the endless webs of vines?

[The Maze Runner](movie:575895) is based off of the best-selling novel of the same name by author James Dashner. The film has a young cast starring two fresh but very recognizable faces, Dylan O’Brien from MTV's [Teen Wolf](series:721002) and [Game of Thrones](movie:817617)' mysterious, supernaturally talented Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

O'Brien plays Thomas, the upcoming movie's main protagonist with Brodie-Sangster at his side as the strong-willed Newt. Together they try their best to lead a group of forgotten teens who have been completely cut off from the outside resources of the functioning world. However, survival isn't so easy when mysterious sickness and otherworldly forces start to creep inside the walls that they can't escape.

Will this be the next great Young Adult franchise? Or will it go the way of [The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones](movie:332173)? I guess we'll find out on September 19, 2014 when [The Maze Runner](movie:575895) hits theaters.
