As if we weren’t already eager enough to see Mad Max: Fury Road, there’s now the assurance that, unlike so many other recent sequels to series born in the ’70s and ’80s, this one will be rated R. In addition, there is a new Japanese trailer for the film, with a YouTube page that features a title that translates to something terrific: Mad Max: Anger of Death Road. Now that’s a movie I want to see. (Even if that is Google’s translation, rather than a proper conversational one.) Read More »

When we saw the first poster for Dark Places, the adaptation of Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn‘s second novel, we wondered why a film that has been done for a while has remained so under the radar. It’s a Flynn adaptation for one, and stars Charlize Theron, with a cast that also features Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks and Drea de Matteo. Now the first Dark Places trailer is out (thanks, France!), and we can see why this has been quiet: it looks like a far cry from Gone Girl. Read More »
Gillian Flynn was a star author before last year’s release of Gone Girl, directed by David Fincher. But that adaptation of Flynn’s novel elevated her name significantly. Not only did she script Gone Girl, but she and Fincher have teamed for an HBO remake of UK series Utopia, and for a new version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train. Her book Sharp Objects is also being adapted for television. And then there’s the Dark Places film, which stars Charlize Theron, and will be released in France this spring. Check out a poster for Dark Places below, which for many will be your first look at the film. Read More »
Mad Max: Fury Road looks absolutely crazy, and a new batch of images only fuels our curiosity about the movie. The film landed in the number-one spot of my most-anticipated list for 2015, in part because we don’t often see films like this from any source, much less from a major studio. This looks like an old Heavy Metal comic come to life, and early test screening reports describe a movie that is almost all action, with very limited dialogue. Given how great the action looks in this case, we’ll all for it. Check out a handful of new Mad Max Fury Road images below. Read More »
Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.
Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I just listed Mad Max: Fury Road as my #1 most anticipated movie of 2015, and right on the heels of that list we’ve got a new trailer for the film. Watching this, my primary question is: How the hell does this movie even exist? This looks like pure, wonderful insanity, and like nothing we’d expect from the modern studio system. This seems to be a sequel that may barely be a sequel in modern terms; an orgy of practical effects and automotive destruction; and if some of those quick insert shots are to be believed, a dose of pure weirdness. Check out the new Mad Max Fury Road trailer below.
(And check out our frame by frame examination of the trailer, too!)

The fourth film in the Mad Max series, Mad Max: Fury Road, doesn’t land in theaters for another year. And, despite the fact that most of the film shot over a year in the past (the first round of photography finished in December 2012) we’ve seen almost nothing from the rather unlikely new chapter in the series. But now stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron have landed on the cover of EW. The photo is really the first good color shot of Tom Hardy as Mad Max, and one of the first released pictures of Theron in her role, period.
Update #1: Many more photos have been released, along with a new synopsis. All that is below.
Update #2: Some interesting concept art has been revealed as well. See it after the jump. Read More »
