George Miller revealed in an interview last year that his original intent for Mad Max: Fury Road was to release it in black and white. While that never happened, he revealed a black-and-white cut for the film would be available on a later home release. For fans who’ve been waiting ever so patiently for that day to finally come, we have good news for you.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced that the Mad Max High Octane Collection will be arriving on December 6. Among all the special features are all four Mad Max films — from the 1979 original up to Fury Road — as well as the “Fury Road Black and Chrome Edition,” which, yes, is the black-and-white version.
Better still, if you want this version but don’t want to drop $79.99 for the Blu-ray or $54.97 for the DVD, the Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition will also be released separately on Blu-ray for $29.98 in a two-film collection with the theatrical version and special introduction from Miller.
