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 »

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 »
