Mad Max Fury Road Black and Chrome SpectreFest premiere

Though the version of Mad Max: Fury Road we saw in theaters last year was bursting with color, director George Miller has been staunch in his belief that “the best version of this movie is black and white.” So a few weeks ago, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced it’d be releasing the fabled “Black and Chrome Edition” of the film on Blu-ray later this year. But if you’ve still got your heart set on watching the black and white version in theaters, you may get your chance this fall.

The Mad Max: Fury Road Black and Chrome Edition will make its theatrical world premiere at SpectreFest in Los Angeles later this month, and tickets are on sale now.
