Though the damn thing has been in the works for quite a while, it’s only now that we’re hearing that Mad Max: Fury Road has an actual release date. What’s even more confusing is that it isn’t anytime soon. For despite all the casting and shooting and whatnot that’s been done of the flick, you won’t be seeing the latest Mad Max until May 15th of 2015.
One has to wonder at why they’re taking so long to get this done considering how far along in the process they are. Well, if “sources” are to be believed, they have some new shooting to get done. Still guys, cameras stopped rolling last year. Get yo’ shit together!
Worse yet, one has to wonder why in the Wasteland they would want to drop Fury Road two weeks after the second Avengers flick opens and during a summer shit-storm of big films. I guess they’re that confident that they’ll bring in the viewers. Me, I’ll be right there to see Tom Hardy jump into Gibson’s boots and roam the blasted Earth fighting the baddies. But will everyone else?
What does the peanut gallery think? Will Mad Max: Fury Road get lost in the 2015 blockbuster shuffle? Are there even enough Mad Max fans still alive at this point?
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
