Valhalla Rising

George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road will get some synthetic beats courtesy of Junkie XL. The Dutch composer and producer (real name Tom Holkenborg) will score the long-gestating sequel, as reported by Manly Movie after the artist teased the news on Twitter.

Holkenborg composed the scores for this summer’s Paranoia, and the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire. Additionally, he has worked on the soundtracks for Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises, and all three Madagascar movies. Mad Max: Fury Road lands in theaters next year. [via The Playlist]

After the jump, sample some tunes from soundtracks that have already been completed, including Daniel Pemberton‘s for The Counselor and Peter Peter and Peter Kyed‘s for Valhalla Rising.

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 »

VOTD: ‘Mad Max’ Video Game Trailer

About time. Though a 1990 NES game brought ideas from The Road Warrior to Nintendo systems, and development has been teased over the years on a new Mad Max game, there hasn’t been a proper revival of George Miller‘s post-apocalyptic series in gaming. Until now. (Fans had to make do with the Fallout and Borderlands games — which isn’t bad, really.)

At E3 a new Max Max game was announced that will put players in the shoes of Max Rockatansky. Since this must be tied to the release of Miller’s fourth film in the series, Mad Max: Fury Road, the game trailer below probably gives a good idea of what we can expect Tom Hardy to look like as Max. Not that we had much reason to doubt what he’d look like — it’s a pretty simple character template. Read More »

When this photo showed up today, no one was quite sure as to whether it really is the first shot of Tom Hardy as the new Max Rockatansky in George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. But Warner Bros. has confirmed that it is, indeed, a legit pic of Max, and so you can enjoy an advance look at the beaten and dirty new Max well in advance of any likely footage debut. Read More »

The image you see above is the first look at Amber Heard as she appears in the Robert Rodriguez film Machete Kills. The movie is, as you likely know, the sequel to 2009′s Machete, which was itself an expansion of the very entertaining “fake” trailer that appeared in the Rodriguez/Tarantino effort Grindhouse.
