Men’s Rights Activists (aka MRAs) are a quaint, primitive little group, one that preaches insidious ideals about oppressing women and rejecting social justice. Their latest crusade targets Mad Max: Fury Road, George Miller’s long-awaited new installment in his beloved Mad Max franchise. It appears that the MRAs have fallen victim to a bait and switch: this film isn’t the explosive action flick they were promised (but it is); instead, it’s a movie with a feminist propaganda.

It’s been almost 30 years since the last Mad Max movie (Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome) hit theaters in 1985, and almost ever since then director George Miller has been working on a sequel. That sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the works for over 25 years and started filming over three years ago. In the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, we take a look at Fury Road. It’s time to remember The Road Warrior. The man we called “Max”…

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Review: The Ultimate Car Chase Movie

“This is a movie that strains at the leash of the possible, a movie of great visionary wonders.” That lovely sentence concluded Roger Ebert’s 1985 review of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Thirty years later, Mad Max is finally back in a new sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Ebert’s words feel truer than ever. Fury Road is an incredible achievement, one that strains so hard at the leash of the possible that it eventually breaks free and barrels headlong into the realm of insane genius. Forget Max Rockatansky; director George Miller, the guy who co-conceived and shot this gorgeous, glorious lunacy, is the true madman here. And the true hero for having pulled it off.

Looks like Charlize Theron wants to get in on some of that John Wick action. The Mad Max: Fury Road star has lined up another thrilling action project, this time with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the directing duo that delivered one of the best action films (if not the best) of 2014 with John Wick. And now they’re teaming up with Theron for a new spy thriller based on the graphic novel The Coldest City.

Six. Six new clips from Mad Max: Fury Road, for all you impatient readers who just can’t wait another couple of weeks. The above clip features part of a scene we saw at SXSW back in March, formally introducing Charlize Theron’s Furiosa, who gets into a rowdy fight with Tom Hardy’s Max. Theron is featured more heavily in these new clips, which also showcase some of the chase sequences we’ve seen in the trailers.

When Mad Max: Fury Road was announced, it was reportedly the first in a new series of films that would be followed shortly thereafter by Mad Max: Furiosa, a new sequel focused on Charlize Theron’s character. This was before the production fell behind schedule, went way over budget and reports surfaced that Theron and co-star Tom Hardy weren’t even speaking to each other on set. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, Charlize Theron isn't so sure she wants to take another ride on Fury Road.

Now that Avengers: Age of Ultron is arriving this weekend, we can start focusing more of our excitement (if even possible) on Mad Max: Fury Road. We’ve got one final trailer for the film, and it features perhaps the most dialogue and exposition yet — that’s definitely quite a change from previous trailers for the film. What hasn’t changed: fire, blood, monstrous vehicles, and that lovely day Nicholas Hoult has been going on about.

If you live in France, the next Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult film you’ll see won’t be Mad Max: Fury Road — it’ll be Dark Places, the latest Gillian Flynn adaptation, which weirdly hasn’t been getting nearly as much attention as we thought it might, given the success of Gone Girl. Dark Places doesn’t have a U.S. release date yet (yeah, we have no idea), but a new clip has landed online to give you a little peek at what this new Flynn adaptation is all about.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Trailer: Chases Beyond Belief (And Thunderdome)

Mad Max: Fury Road is like the blockbuster version of a Stefan sketch from Saturday Night Live: “Hollywood’s hottest movie is Mad Max: Fury Road! This movie has everything: Cars with spikes, motorcycles on stilts, albinos with crazy teeth masks, guitars that spit fire!” At least in this trailer (and pretty much all the film’s trailers), the whole thing just looks absolutely bananas, not so much post-apocalyptic as post-sanity.
