The day is finally here, Gladers! The Maze Runner is available now on DVD and Blu-Ray (plus the already released Digital HD). We’re breaking down what you need to know about the DVD/Blu-Ray and why we’re excited to bring The Maze Runner home today.
Trailer & Synopsis
Teen survivors of a major eco-disaster are sent to live in a controlled agrarian environment called the Glade from which the newest and most capable “Runner” among them figures out how to escape — by navigating a surrounding, ever-changing Maze that is patrolled by deadly semi-mechanical monsters called Grievers.

Why We’re Excited
It’s no secret that we loved The Maze Runner–you can check out our review here–but one of the best things about the movie is how much re-watching potential it has. With non-stop action, mystery, compelling effects, and engaging characters, there’s always something new to discover (and so many favorite moments to enjoy all over again). Best of all, when you have your own copy, no one can judge you for watching it back to back (to back) this holiday season (or until The Scorch Trials hits theaters). And you can’t go wrong with an instant Dylan O’Brien fix, just saying.
The Gag Reel
With how much we’ve heard about The Maze Runner gag reel in various interviews with the cast and crew, we’re expecting it to be epic. From the looks of it, we can expect lots of dancing (hey, we’re not complaining) and general tomfoolery, not to mention the infamous Thomas/Newt almost-kiss outtake (which Blake Cooper a.k.a. Chuck and other cast members named as one of the funniest on-set moments). We have a feeling that this bonus feature will come in handy when we’re suffering from PGSD (Post-Griever Stress Disorder).
The Inside Scoop on the Maze
With its ever-evolving twists and turns, mysterious workings, and terrifying inhabitants, the Maze itself was stunningly rendered in The Maze Runner–as it had to be in order for the film to be a success. While we look forward to enjoying director Wes Ball & Co’s handiwork again and again as we re-watch the movie, we’re also excited to check out the commentary and behind-the-scenes documentary detailing how the Maze (and the Grievers) came to life.
