Mad Max: Fury Road

In this third sequel to George Miller’s classic ‘Max Max’—the first in almost 30 years—Tom Hardy assumes the title role of Max Rockatansky from Mel Gibson, and attempts to help a group of women (led by Charlize Theron) as they escape from an evil warlord. Chaos and crazy car chases ensue. Miller has been trying to mount ‘Fury Road’ for decades; he finally shot the film, which he describes as “a Western on wheels,” in the summer of 2012 in the deserts of Namibia.

By filmmaker George Miller’s own account, Mad Max: Fury Road took 10 years to develop and an additional three years of production — totally worth it, based on the end result, which picked up 10 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and won six. Though Miller has expressed interest in returning to the franchise in the (relatively) near future, those plans may suffer the consequences of a recent lawsuit filed by the Australian filmmaker to recoup an allegedly unpaid debt from Warner Bros.
