If we were to measure a film’s success in cultural impact and not box office, Mad Max: Fury Road would be the biggest movie of 2015. It may have only earned a fraction of the cash hoarded by Jurassic World and Furious 7, but no film this year has inspired so much enthusiasm. The memes are abundant. Every artist took time to draw Furiosa. George Miller‘s action masterpiece transformed the internet into a sweaty, shaken, profoundly inspired mass of pure adrenaline.
So yeah, Warner Bros. has decided to push their post-apocalyptic feminist action extravaganza for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. It won’t win (and it probably won’t even get nominated), but that wouldn’t be the first time a masterpiece has been ignored by the Oscars.
Get all shiny and chrome with the Fury Road Oscars news after the jump.

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.

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.

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 »
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 »
