The reboot for the Mad Max franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been in development for a long time.  Part of that was out of the production’s control.  Filming was set to begin in November 2011, but the location had to be changed after heavy rains changed the landscape of Broken Hill.  The production then moved to Namibia, but the delays caused recasting and rearranging the actors’ schedules.  Then in November 2013, the movie required heavy reshoots.  The studio finally set down May 2015 for the release date, and yesterday was the first test screening.

Hit the jump to read the new synopsis along with the mixed reactions to the screening.  The film stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Nathan JonesMad Max: Fury Road opens May 15, 2015.

The fourth installment of the Mad Max franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road, is now officially set to open on May 15, 2015.  That’s almost exactly 30 years since the last film, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, graced the screens.  (Feel old yet?)  Franchise director George Miller returns for this iteration, which stars Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) as Max Rockatansky, along with Nicholas Hoult, Charlize Theron, Mel Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, and Riley Keough.  No plot details are available at this time and there’s no official statement as to the release date push back just yet.

Summer 2015 is looking to be one of the biggest ever.  This release date is otherwise unoccupied, but is just two week’s after Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a week before Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland and Paul Feig’s Susan Cooper.

Is This the First Image of Tom Hardy as Mad Max in MAD MAX: FURY ROAD? [UPDATED]

by     Posted 1 year, 273 days ago

removed_image_slice

Filming on the long-delayed Mad Max: Fury Road finally wrapped several weeks ago, and now we might have our first look at the eponymous road-warrior.  In the new movie, Mad Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy) gets caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron).  Although George Miller, who directed the previous Mad Max movies, has returned for the fourth installment, we don’t know if the new film is a sequel or a reboot.  The leather outfit may be considered a little outdated (although this set photo from Bleeding Cool showed Hardy rocking the leather pants), so perhaps this is Mad Max for the 21st century?

Official Synopsis and Character Names for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron

by     Posted 2 years, 34 days ago

mad_max_logo_slice

Filming on the fourth Mad Max film, Mad Max: Fury Road, has been underway for a couple months now, but Kennedy Miller Mitchell Productions have now released an announcement that principal photography has begun.  These production start announcements usually don’t mean much except they usually contain the first synopsis for the movie, and this press release is no different.  We’ll also give the release a pass since Mad Max: Fury Road looked like it might never happen since it was constantly delayed, and the production hit a serious snag when their original location was hit with flooding and turned into an oasis, which doesn’t really lend itself to a post-apocalyptic wasteland.  Shooting is now taking place in Africa.

Hit the jump for the press release, which contains the synopsis along with the names of all the major roles (and there are some great character names).  Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy as the new Mad Max, and also stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne, and Nathan Jones.

Charlize Theron Says MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Starts Filming June 2

by     Posted 2 years, 119 days ago

charlize_theron_slice_01

Director George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road has been a long time coming.  The film was planned as a reboot of sorts for Miller’s Mad Max series that launched Mel Gibson’s career.  Pre-production began in 2009 with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron set to star, and when filming was finally gearing up to commence in late 2010 on the ambitious, large-scale project, Miller announced that they would have to postpone production until 2012.  Torrential rains flooded the area in Australia where Miller was planning to shoot, so he decided to wait until the landscape returned to its desert-like nature.  Hit the jump for more.

Mel Gibson Interview; Talks MAD MAX 4 and He’s Using Old Norse in His Viking Movie With Leonardo DiCaprio

by     Posted 4 years, 247 days ago

slice_mel_gibson_vikings_leonardo_dicaprio_01.jpg

Earlier today I attended a press conference with Mel Gibson as he’s out promoting his new film Edge of Darkness (which I really liked).  During the Q&A, he talked about his involvement in Mad Max 4 and he gave us some new details on his Viking movie.

Regarding Mad Max 4, Gibson said, “At one point I was involved and it fell to bits and then this and that…so now it’s probably gone through a lot of changes and I can’t wait to see it.”  Does that mean he’s definitely not in it?  Hard to say.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he still does a cameo of some kind.

But the big news came when he was talking about his Viking movie.  While we reported about a month ago that he was developing a Viking film with screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed) and it was going to star Leonardo DiCaprio, what we didn’t know is that he’s going for absolute realism!  When we asked what language would be used in the film, Gibson told us:

“I think it’s going to be English – the English that would have been spoken back then – and Old Norse.  Whatever the 9th century had to offer.  I’m going to give you real.”

The New MAD MAX Film, FURY ROAD Rumored to Be in 3D and Combine Live Action and Animation

by     Posted 4 years, 248 days ago

Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy Mad Max.jpg

Director George Miller is moving ahead with the fourth installment in the Mad Max franchise, Fury RoadThey’ve got they’re lead actors with Tom Hardy (Bronson) taking over the role of ‘Mad’ Max Rockatansky from “Mad” Mel Gibson; Charlize Theron is also attached to co-star.  Filming began last October and they’re reportedly going to shoot for 30 weeks and may cost $100 million.  To put that in perspective, a mid-size film takes about four to six weeks.  This extended shoot may lend credence to at least one of the rumors about the film that surfaced today [via /Film].

Translating this page with the help of technology, Tout Le Cine says that the film will blend live action with animation.  I can see how setting up shots to make sure the two blend together could require more time.  Then again, it’s difficult for me to comprehend what director needs 30 weeks of filming for just one movie.  On a separate note, /Film reports that sources have told them the film will be in 3D as a result of “The Avatar Effect”.  I find this one more difficult to accept since filming has already been going on for over two months now and it seems a little late in the game to have Avatar re-define Miller’s film, especially if Miller didn’t have 3D in mind in the first place.  It’s possible he could create the effect in post, but that would sadly seem like bandwagon-hopping.  Then again, that’s The Avatar Effect: 3D makes everything “better” even though James Cameron always intended his film to be in 3D, rather than making that decision in post-production.

Fury Road is set to hit theaters some time in 2011.
