In just under a month, we’ll get to enjoy Mad Max: Fury Road from the comfort of our homes over and over again when it hits Blu-Ray and DVD on September 1st. (Or via digital download even earlier, on August 11th.) It’s still my favorite movie of the summer, and it will likely be one of my favorites of the whole year when all is said and done. And thankfully, George Miller already revealed that the next movie will be called Mad Max: The Wasteland.
However, it doesn’t sound like the movie is being fast-tracked or anything, because Charlize Theron isn’t even signed on to star in the proposed sequel just yet. Find out more about the Charlize Theron Mad Max Wasteland concern after the jump! Read More »

Two of my favorite pop culture artists are gearing up to release prints based on two of the best films released over the last year. Dave Perillo created an awesome poster for Patrick Osborne‘s Disney animated short film Feast (maybe my favorite animated film from Disney at this point, yes ever) and Scott C created a massive Great Showdown tribute to George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. Find out details on how you can obtain both of these prints, and see the artwork in high resolution, after the jump.

Even a couple months after Mad Max: Fury Road hit theaters, the movie has stuck with us all summer. In particular, the flame-throwing Doof Warrior guitarist from Immortan Joe army has made quite the impression on movie goers, even prompting Conan to get a little crazy when he went down to Comic-Con for some of his shows this month.
And if you’ve been desperate to learn how you can be as cool as this post-apocalyptic rock star riding a wagon of sound straight out of Dr. Seuss’ most terrifying nightmares, then we have a collection of certified Doof Tips just for you. Find out how to be a Doof Warrior after the jump! Read More »
Mad Max: Fury Road is the sort of film that will inspire film nerd conversations for years to come. The craft behind it is so potent and sharp that we can’t really help it; there’s a lot to talk about in George Miller’s latest film, built as it is on his direction, the cinematography of John Seale, and the editing of Margaret Sixel. (To say nothing of the film’s performances.)
A new video is all about the Mad Max Fury Road editing and cinematography, specifically with respect to the push-in shots and a few other elements. Read More »
For many movie fans this summer, nothing has been able to topple that greatness that is Mad Max: Fury Road.

In case you didn’t know, in addition to all the geeks and nerds that have descended upon San Diego for Comic-Con this week, comedian Conan O’Brien is also here with his late night TBS talk show. It’s the first time a late night show has been recorded during the festivities, and Conan even has shows this weekend when the convention really gets busy.
Last night brought the first episode from San Diego, and with it came this fantastic cold open showing how Conan and his trusty comic sidekick Andy Richter made it to town. Hint: it’s a tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road, with Conan as the Doof Warrior with the flaming guitar and Richter as Immortan Joe. It’s just as awesome as you hope it will be.

Just yesterday, the entire SlashFilm crew participated in a collaborative list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. We all voted, and then crunched the numbers to figure out what the top movies were throughout all our lists. Films like While We’re Young, Inside Out and Ex Machina made the list, but several readers also had their own favorites.
So let’s see if this alternate list of The 10 Best Films Of 2015 (Thus Far) is any better received. I’m guessing that plenty will still disagree since this one includes some more obscure titles and foreign films that a lot of people haven’t seen yet. The list is presented in the form of a video essay, so watch below to find out what the best films of 2015 so far may be! Read More »

Our entire staff voted on the top 10 list that follows. The results run the gamut from quirky indie to broad comedy to R-rated action. Find /Film’s list of the top 10 films of 2015 so far after the jump. Read More »
There’s a book to be written on the decade and a half development of George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road. At varying times, plans for the film featured a roster of other projects which came and went as Fury Road itself soldiered on.
A companion film called Furiosa was planned at one point. Even earlier on, that movie was envisioned as an anime prequel or companion to Fury Road. Now we’ve got designs from that abandoned Mad Max anime, done by Mahiro Maeda, thanks to a Japanese TV show. Read More »
