Each new dose of Mad Max: Fury Road footage (like this week’s trailer) has only upped our amazement that a film like this can even come out of a major studio in 2015, and the film is lodged firmly atop our collective “most anticipated of the summer” list. If the film lives up to the promise of this early footage, and audiences respond, we might see star Tom Hardy return for several more runs as Max. He revealed in an interview that he is signed for three more Mad Max sequels. Read More »

Update: Warner Bros has released a three minute version of the Mad Max: Fury Road comic con footage. This is about three minutes out of what was shown at Comic Con, but it’ll give you a really good idea about why we were so taken with the footage. Watch the trailer now after the jump. That embed is followed by our original panel coverage from Saturday’s showing.

The fourth film in the Mad Max series, Mad Max: Fury Road, doesn’t land in theaters for another year. And, despite the fact that most of the film shot over a year in the past (the first round of photography finished in December 2012) we’ve seen almost nothing from the rather unlikely new chapter in the series. But now stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron have landed on the cover of EW. The photo is really the first good color shot of Tom Hardy as Mad Max, and one of the first released pictures of Theron in her role, period.
Update #1: Many more photos have been released, along with a new synopsis. All that is below.
Update #2: Some interesting concept art has been revealed as well. See it after the jump. Read More »
Warner Bros. has chosen a berth for the fourth Mad Max film from writer/director George Miller. Mad Max: Fury Road, in which Tom Hardy takes over the title role from original star Mel Gibson, will be in theaters (in 3D) on May 15, 2015. That’s two weeks after Avengers: Age of Ultron and one week before Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. Read More »

Prometheus is spilling over into comics. Dark Horse Entertainment is “brewing something up that I think the fans of Ridley Scott‘s amazing film will really like,” says publisher Mike Richardson.
No official announcement has been made and details are still scarce, but Bleeding Cool reports that Dark Horse plans to introduce Prometheus characters into their Aliens comic book franchise, which has been around since 1988. Richardson let slip that a writer had already been hired for the new project, but wouldn’t say who. More info is expected to hit at Comic-Con. [THR]
After the jump, Saved By the Bell, Miami Vice, and Punky Brewster get comic-book-sequelized, and the Mad Max video game gains an Aussie accent.

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 »
Last week in London I had the opportunity to sit at a table with other journalists and interview Prometheus star Charlize Theron.
Charlize talks the evolution of the script from when she first read it to shoot, the secrecy of the production, the brilliance of working on practical sets vs. cg, the extent that Ridley Scott went to make everything feel real, gives a little bit of insight into the backstory of her character, being frightened by the unknown, deciding not to rewatch the Alien films before shooting, having fun with Fassbender in between takes on set, theories about her character, the delivery of dialogue, preparing for Mad Max: Fury Road, making big movies vs. making smaller movies, producing tv projects with Ridley Scott and David Fincher, the attraction to do tv over films, her obsession with HBO and Game of Thrones, finding time to take a vacation, and much more.
Read the entire interview after the jump. It contains only very minor spoilers (I have made any mild spoilers invisible, you need to highlight to reveal).

The expanding universe of Mad Max keeps on expanding. There was a point a couple years ago when it was surprising to learn that series creator/director George Miller had written a new Mad Max movie and would be bringing it to screens. That project, Mad Max: Fury Road, is set to star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron and will hopefully shoot sometime in the first half of 2012.
Shortly after we learned of the existence of Fury Road, we found that it was actually the first of two new films, with the second potentially called Mad Max: Furiosa. And now Miller says that he’s actually got three scripts. So if Fury Road ever gets off the ground, we might end up with a whole new Mad Max trilogy. Read More »
