Originally The Maze Runner was set to charm Gladers on Valentine's Day, but it's now been pushed until September 19th instead.
Good news and bad news y'all. Bad news, you have to wait a bit longer. Good news, the movie and marketing can be the best it can be now.

Good news is that this leaves more time for marketing, post-production work, promotional events, and more. This extra time before release means that Fox truly cares about The Maze Runner in the short and long term, which is great for the potential franchise.
Even though we have to wait longer for the release, we have a distinct feeling that it'll definitely be worth the wait!
