Read Miller’s comments on the Mad Max sequels after the jump. Read More »

Mad Max: Fury Road finally came out on Blu-ray this week, after hitting VOD last month. But as much as we enjoy watching Max and Furiosa battle Immortan Joe from the comfort of our own living room couches, it’s just not the same. This is a film demands to be seen on the big screen if at all possible. And starting next weekend, it will be again. IMAX just has announced that Mad Max: Fury Road will be returning to its theaters for one week only starting Friday, September 11.
The long-gestating sequel from George Miller originally debuted in theaters May 15. To date, it’s made $374 million worldwide — not bad, but not great. It’s been a much bigger hit with critics, including those of us right here at /Film. Whether you missed the train the first time around, or whether you just want to go for another ride, head over to the IMAX website for tickets and information.
If for some reason you haven’t already headed out to the store to buy Mad Max: Fury Road on Blu-Ray or DVD, it’s available for purchase right now to watch over and over again. There’s plenty to learn about the production in the special features, but you won’t get to find out as much about the crazy cars of this cross-desert chase as you will in this infographic that just surfaced.
Warner Bros. Pictures has put together a fact sheet showing off some of the insane Mad Max Fury Road vehicles that get caught up in the non-stop action. From the Doof Wagon to the War Rig to the Gigahorse, there’s some cool bits of information here for the gearheads and cinephiles out there. Read More »

For us in the audience, Mad Max: Fury Road felt thrillingly new when it raced into theaters this summer. But for director George Miller, it was the culmination of an idea that had been kicking around in his head for nearly two decades. A new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, shows us Miller’s original handwritten outline for the movie, dating all the way back to 1997.
Of course, now that Mad Max: Fury Road is actually out, it’s inspired its own wave of creativity, this time from the fans who fell for it in cinemas. One of the most stunning pieces of fan art we’ve seen retells Miller’s saga in — of all things — ancient Egyptian style. After the jump, see Miller’s original Fury Road outline and an Egyptian-style Fury Road reinterpretation. Read More »

We’ve already seen Mad Max: Fury Road get a Mario Kart overhaul, and now the Honest Trailer for the blockbuster from the director of Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City dives into what they describe as a two-hour, hellish version of the Nintendo racing game.
The good news is that this Honest Trailer doesn’t really do much to criticize what is one of the best action blockbusters we’ve ever seen, but rather just pokes fun at certain elements, like Tom Hardy‘s endless array of grunts. Watch the Mad Max Fury Road Honest Trailer below! Read More »
We’ve already seen a fair share of mash-ups involving this summer’s blockbuster favorite Mad Max: Fury Road. Recently someone made an Adventure Time version of the trailer, and before that someone took elements of Mario Kart and inserted them into the trailer. And now we’re getting an almost real-life version of the latter mash-up done in quite the professional manner, complete with impressive stunt work.
For those who don’t know, there’s a Mad Max video game arriving in stores the same day that Mad Max: Fury Road hit shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD. And the folks at Devin Super Tramp were asked to team up with Warner Bros. Games to make a viral commercial for the video game where they recreate the non-stop chase from Fury Road with GoKarts and paintball guns, and it’s impressive as hell.

In just over a couple weeks, fans of Mad Max: Fury Road will be able to pick up their own copy of George Miller‘s magnificent action bonanza on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 1st (or you can get it right now on digital download). But for those who aren’t so patient, maybe a new trailer mash-up with the post-apocalyptic sequel will hold you over.
YouTube user Egor Zhgun decided to take characters from the hit show Adventure Time and create a short little animated trailer as if they were the characters in Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s a little bit trippy, not unlike the real movie, or for that matter the TV show, with Finn as Max and Jake as one of the vehicles on the chase, but it’s a fun little creation. Read More »
The poster and collectibles company Mondo has just begun shipping the LP pressing of the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack, but if you missed out on that order there are yet more Mondo Mad Max offerings.
The company revealed three posters, two by portrait artist Mike Mitchell and one by Ken Taylor, featuring the characters from George Miller‘s action blast. Even better, these are timed releases rather than strictly limited-edition prints, meaning that they’ll be printed based on the number of orders collected during a window of time — no lightning-quick web shop reflexes needed for these!
