I’ve added a couple of sets of photos from when the cast of The Maze Runner visited the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Seacrest Studios. Check them out in the gallery below!
After becoming a $225 million smash at the box office and having its sequel, The Scorch Trials, green lit, Fox has announced plans for The Maze Runner to come home on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download.
Look for the big screen version of James Dashner’s hit book (it was on the New York Times bestseller list for 100 weeks) to land on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 16, just in time for Christmas!
Dylan O’Brien supremely impressed us with his lead role as Thomas (as we reported in our The Maze Runner review). O’Brien awakes on an elevator heading to the surface and when he gets there, it’s a shock. He has no idea who he is and all he knows is that everyone who has been sent there is standing around looking at him. Many of them have been there for years, and the reason they cannot get out: There’s a giant maze that surrounds them.
The Maze Runner will land on home video in a two-disc combo pack that features over two hours of bonus features that will surely please all those who adored the book and of course those who cherished the movie.

The Maze Runner director Wes Ball has said that the YA film series won’t be following in the footsteps of The Hunger Games and Divergent by dividing its final movie into two parts.
A recent Hollywood trend – kick-started by Harry Potter and Twilight – has seen producers extend the lifespan of franchises by splitting the final source novel of a series into two separate movies.
Speaking to Digital Spy, director Ball said that James Dashner’s initial trilogy – The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure – would only be adapted into three films.
“I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that’s it. Four? I think there’s something off about four. For me, if I have any say in it, there’s three movies basically.
“We’re not going to [split a book in two], no way. I think three movies is the right number, Star Wars!”
Dashner has also penned Maze Runner prequel novel The Kill Order and will release follow-up The Fever Code in 2016.
