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 »

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.

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 »
Seth MacFarlane had already conquered TV when he released his feature debut, Ted, in 2012. The film was a smash, he went on to host the Oscars and while some are looking at 2015′s Ted 2 as the director’s next foray into the multiplex, he actually has a pretty huge film out this year.
It’s the western comedy called A Million Ways To Die In The West, which tells the story of a meek farmer (MacFarlane) who loses his girlfriend after backing out of a gunfight, then falls in with a mysterious woman who has an evil outlaw boyfriend. The cast is super impressive (Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi and Neil Patrick Harris) and now you can see them all in character on eight different posters.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane follows up his comedy Ted with a comedy western called A Million Ways to Die in the West, and the first image from the new film is online. While MacFarlane “starred” as Ted in his directorial debut, there he had a CG creation between him and the audience; for this film, the writer/director is taking one of the lead roles with no CG costume. He stars opposite Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, and Amanda Seyfried in a story about a farmer who loses his girlfriend after backing out of a gunfight, then falls in with a mysterious woman who, unfortunately, has a notorious outlaw boyfriend.

A quick glance at the /Film archives reveals the fourth Mad Max movie, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in the public eye since early 2009. Four years is a normal amount of time for fans to be aware of a movie’s existence (we sometimes hear about movies before scripts exist, for example) but what makes Fury Road so unique is it was supposed to shoot in 2010, then was delayed to a 2012 shoot, and now it’s 2013. The film’s in the can and there’s still no release date in place. The photo above is all we’ve seen.
While most experts tend to think we’ll see George Miller‘s 3D sequel starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in 2014, there’s apparently still work to be done. A new report says the director – who shot the film in Africa last year – is heading to Australia in November for three more weeks of filming. Read More »
