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.

The love for Mad Max: Fury Road runs deep, and fans have celebrated the recent sequel with fantastic cosplay and art since the movie arrived in theaters two years ago. However, one way wastelanders haven't been able to show their appreciation is with displaying action figures or collectibles of the Fury Road's iconic characters in their homes. Until now, George Miller and Warner Bros. hadn't opted to offer the licensing rights to anyone. Somehow though, Funko was able to work its magic and will be the first company to bring Furiosa, the Doof Warrior, and Max Rockatanksy to life as toys.

Mad Max: Fury Road changed the game when it comes to action cinema, giving us a post-apocalyptic movie that doesn’t skimp on color, fight scenes that are easy for the eye to follow, and a heroine who is more than just a cliched Strong Female Character. Ahead of the one-night-only release of Fury Road’s “Black and Chrome Edition” hitting U.K. theaters, director George Miller gave some insight into how and why he decided to provide an alternate, black and white edition of his movie, and what’s going on with the next one.

The Mad Max: Fury Road stunt crew sure made a name for themselves during George Miller’s return to his post-apocalyptic road movie series. Miller made it a point to have as much real effects as he could in the movie, and his stunt team was the best of the best. They even figured out how to do stunts practically that Miller was planning on using CGI for. Now, the stunt team will ride shiny and chrome once again, but instead of Valhalla, they’re heading to Atlantis.

What you are watching above is the trailer for Mad Sheila, a new Chinese film that is a blatant and very bonkers ripoff of Mad Max: Fury Road. Unfortunately, we have no idea when or if this delightful film is coming to America, but I’m going to go ahead and put forth the wild suggestion that you could very well find Mad Sheila lurking on a major city street sidewalk sometime in the near future, if you know what I mean.

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most visually stunning action movies ever made, partly because George Miller eschewed the grays-and-browns trend of post-apocalyptic movies. Fury Road drips with vibrant oranges, reds, and blues that provide a stunning technicolor backdrop for our heroes’ race through the desert. But according to Miller, the best version of the film is one he made without any color at all: the “Black & Chrome Edition” of the film has been teased ever since its release, and it’ll be coming to video stores with a special Blu-ray release after a theatrical debut at this year’s SpectreFest.

In interviews, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller talked about wanting to show his movie in black-and-white. In a conversation with director Edgar Wright, he explained that “the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now.” There were rumblings of a theatrical release of a black-and-white Fury Road, but that never came to pass. But the monochromatic print (heavy on the chrome, in this case) of the movie is coming to Blu-ray, and you’ll be able to get it before the end of the year.
