Mad Max Fury Road

It’s important to remember the past, if only not to repeat its mistakes. Director George Miller remembers, just like Pepperidge Farms. His latest exploration of the apocalyptic world he created back in 1990, Mad Max: Fury Road released a fabulous trailer today that pays homage to those glorious days of yesteryear, and gets us all pumped up for what’s coming to theater screens on May 15th.

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been in production for so long that its felt like waiting for Itchy & Scratchy to get to the fireworks factory waiting to see a trailer. Some lucky buggers got approriately teased last summer at San Diego Comic Con, but unless you like grainy videos shot at weird angles and with muffled sound, not even the bootlegs suffice. No big deal, you may say, the release of the movie is still a long way off, right? Well what if I told you that the release of Batman V. Superman is now less than a year away? It’s true, and now we’re getting news that the first look at the epic showdown between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel maybe coming soon to a theater (and computer) near you. (more…)

If you weren’t sold by the first trailer then this second one has to seal the deal. Tom Hardy is Mad Max in a world in which he isn’t sure who is crazier, everyone else, or himself. I for one think it is Mad Max: Fury Road‘s director George Miller who’s the craziest of all. This looks non-stop crazy so far. Unless that entire chase scene has been seen in these trailers, which I highly doubt, I can’t wait to see the full smashing, insane scene in its entirety. (more…)

Yes, it has come to this, we’re making up new words to describe George Miller‘s upcoming, sure to be a blockbuster, Mad Max: Fury Road.

Explodatious: To explode things in such a way that gives actual physical release of pleasure in both the brain and various naughty bits.

This time around it’s all about the boom… bout the boom..bout the boom. (more…)

After decades of development, we’re finally seeing the next chapter in George Miller‘s Mad Max saga. Months after the reveal of the teaser trailer at this years San Diego Comic-Con comes the first full two and a half face melting minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road in the form of a full theatrical trailer. In Millers own words, the movie is a “a western on wheels” and a “105 minute car chase” and this trailer solidifies that (ok, maybe I don’t see the ‘western’ aspect just yet but I am sure it’s in there. Somewhere.) It’s bombastic, sweeping, epic. It’s everything that Miller gave us in The Road Warrior (or Mad Max 2 depending on where you live,) doubled, doused in gasoline, set on fire and pushed off a cliff while some dude dressed like he failed his GWAR audition cackles maniacally.

It’s safe to say that this is a highly anticipated movie (personally I’ve been waiting for it after the first 10 minutes of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, seriously. what the crap was with that movie? Why was he walking everywhere? What the hell was up with the kids from Peter Pan in the cave… Why is everyone talking so much and not impaled on the grill of a semi-hauler with spikes welded on to it?)

The trailer does a great job of upping that anticipation. Check it out. (more…)

SDCC14: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Trailer Revealed

George Miller’s Justice League fell apart and he’s spent the majority of the last three decades working on dramas and kids films (to much acclaim, I might add), so when it was announced that he would return to the Max Max franchise that had sat rotting in the dessert since 1985, a little bit of doubt crept in. Could Miller re-find the magic after so much time away from the dessert wasteland? Could he sell Mad Max to a new audience that has grown accustomed to violent post-apocalyptic tales and would the old audience reject a continuation of the franchise without Mel Gibson?

After watching the official teaser trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road (embedded below), some of those questions are still without an answer (and new ones are posed, like might this be over the top?), but with regard to those worries about Miller, one thing is clear: never doubt a genius.  (more…)

Surely by now those of you back home have heard about the insanely long line for San Diego Comic-Con‘s Hall H. It began forming about mid-afternoon yesterday and soon stretched three miles long (according to the convention gossips, that is). Yet–friend of the site, Rush Urbalejo has managed to grab a spot in the room and will be doing his best to recap today’s announcements. First up, Warner Bros.

George Miller‘s long-awaited fourth installment in the franchise that essentially birthed the post-apocalyptic subgenre is looking good: In the hot, dusty, lawless, sadomasochistic way moviegoers of the 1980s came to know and love (including myself).

Mad Max: Fury Road seems to be a semi-reboot taking place after the events of the original Mad Max–meaning it is intended to either precede or replace The Road Warrior. Like that film, it’s low on dialogue. Miller reportedly relied more on storyboards than on screenplay in composing the film, but given that he’s had the better part of 30 years to get the 4th Mad Max film right, I’m fairly optimistic for Fury Road. Follow the jump for cast details, new images, and the release date:

Obviously when you release the schedule for the first half of a con, you’re going to release the schedule for the second half sooner rather than later. To wit, San Diego Comic Con has now fully disclosed the goings on of their 2014 edition, and the weekend line-up promises the bulk of the con’s big movie panels and some of the TV shows it didn’t have time to get to one Friday. So what’s in store? Read on to find out. (more…)
