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 »
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.

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011.
So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. The fact that the film was among the most striking things we saw at SDCC 2014 was even more impressive; after all those years in development, who knew what to expect? We’ve shown you the trailer, and now you can watch the whole Fury Road press conference, in which Miller and producer Doug Mitchell discuss the film’s development, story, and production. We’ve also gone back to a TV appearance Miller did several years ago, talking about the film. Read More »
