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.

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 »
Another day has come, and even more craziness has surfaced on the internet in honor of Mad Max: Fury Road. We’ve already seen some custom LEGO vehicles inspired by George Miller‘s non-stop desert chase, not to mention a mash-up with Mario Kart, and an even stranger but perfect mash-up with The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
But now the glory of Mad Max: Fury Road is starting to seep into the real world. First up, the War Boys have taken to Amazon.com with over-excited reviews of an edible chrome spray (It’s not official Mad Max chrome spray, but it’s still a lovely spray). In addition, some skilled musicians have put together some intricate sheet music that will allow you to riff on the guitar just like the beloved Doof Warrior.

Plenty of people have been praising Mad Max: Fury Road over and over again. Every chance we get to write about the film, we’re throwing kudos to director George Miller for crafting what could very well end up being the best action movie of the year, maybe even the decade. But let’s not forget that the original Mad Max franchise was a rather impressive achievement.
A new supercut has come along taking a look at one key element of the first three Mad Max films: POV shots. Director George Miller effectively and seamlessly uses POV shots to put the audience right in the middle of the action without it ever feeling like a gimmick. It’s just one of the many ways Miller has proven that he’s a master behind the camera.

So you can imagine how excited we were to find out that one LEGO fan built some custom sets paying tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road.
A Flickr user going by the name “LEGO Will” has built some incredible custom LEGO Mad Max: Fury Road vehicles, including the rogue War Rig commandeered by Imperator Furiosa.

And since we’ve been gushing about the movie for over a week now, it’s time to start playing around with it on the internet by mashing it up with whatever people can think of.
Earlier this week we already featured a surprisingly perfect mash-up of the Netflix comedy series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and footage of Charlize Theron being a certified badass as Imperator Furiosa. Now another fantastic use of Mad Max: Fury Road footage has come along that combines the film non-stop chase with elements of Mario Kart. It’s surprisingly well-done and very amusing.

Mad Max: Fury Road was over a decade in the making, and hit the screen with a rich backstory. While it’s more fun to let the characters on screen exist with only the information we’re given in the movie, the tales of the creation of Fury Road are so good that we have to dive in.
Below we’ve got eight of our favorite bits of Mad Max: Fury Road trivia, from the insane planning that went into the stunts, to the freedom that digital cinematography allowed in collecting the insane amount of footage that makes up this movie and the fact that the Mad Max: Fury Road blu-ray will feature a black and white version of the film with an isolated score as the only soundtrack.
