From George Miller comes Mad Max: Fury Road, an epic vision of a wasteland filled with exploding cars, killer electrical storms, ghastly mutants, and a guy playing guitar while standing on top of a speeding big rig and that guitar can also be used as a flamethrower. Please note that George Miller is not a fourteen-year old boy.

Mad Max: Fury Road — Posters and Comic-Con Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/mad-max-fury-road-posters-and-comic-con-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/mad-max-fury-road-posters-and-comic-con-trailer/#comments Sun, 27 Jul 2014 20:31:01 +0000 bgoldstein http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=gallery&p=263447 Director George Miller describes the fourth 'Mad Max' installment as a "105-minute chase scene through the wasteland." So yeah, this should be awesome.

Mad Max: Fury Road won’t hit theaters until May 2015, but Warner Brothers has started teasing it with some early posters (see above) and a first-look trailer that dropped at Comic-Con on Saturday. So far, we like what we see.

Although Fury Road looks noticeably slicker than the gritty, grimy Mad Max trilogy that preceded it — 1979′s Mad Max, 1981′s The Road Warror, and 1985′s Beyond Thunderdome, all directed by George Miller — it’s still packed with the kind of post-apocalyptic mayhem that we’ve come to expect. Miller describes the fourth installment as a “105-minute chase scene through the wasteland.”

Check out the trailer below. Also, I just made this photo my computer background image, and you should too.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Starts Shooting In January 2012 Or Maybe Not http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-starts-shooting-in-january-2012-or-maybe-not/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-starts-shooting-in-january-2012-or-maybe-not/#comments Fri, 04 Mar 2011 03:17:38 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=32823 Are you ready for more 'Mad Max'? Well, ask your local weatherman to make it happen.

Are you ready for more Mad Max? Well, ask your local weatherman to make it happen. He alone has the power to get the forth installment of this series underway, because Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is ready to shoot in January 2012… unless there’s rain.

“We will restart pre-production later this year and begin early next year—weather permitting,” Miller said acknowledging the year-long delay he and Warner Bros. had agreed on. “We’ve built the vehicles. We’ve designed the movie. The principal cast is locked in. The film is funded. It’s all ready to go. We just wait.”

This film has been in a pre-production post-apocalypse for years and years. I know everything’s in place, and that Tom Hardy (Inception) and Charlize Theron are locked in, though previously attached Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) is now driving away from this movie on her motorcycle. Still, somehow I get the feeling this is never gonna happen, especially if rain is gonna stop them. Would rain stop Max Rockatansky from road-battling Bubba and Toecutter? (The Playlist)

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Won’t Start Its Engine Until at Least Early 2012 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-wont-start-its-engine-until-at-least-early-2012/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-wont-start-its-engine-until-at-least-early-2012/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Yay, more Mad Max: Fury Road delay news. Just the other day we reported that Charlize Theron might shed her arm for the film, and now it seems production isn't anticipated to begin until February 2012. But how will I quench my insatiable Charlize amputee fetish?! George Miller is having worse luck with Mad Max than Terry Gilliam is with bringing a Don Quixote story to the screen. Some powerful force does not want these projects seen by the world. I'm aware of the curse on adapting Quixote, but the troubles with Mad Max's production are perplexing. All I can guess is that somewhere Mel Gibson is surrounded by candles and lamb's blood uttering satanic prayers over a picture of Tom Hardy. (/Film)

‘Mad Max’ Will Cost Charlize Theron One Arm http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-will-cost-charlize-theron-one-arm/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-will-cost-charlize-theron-one-arm/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This picture was created with the finest equipment 1987 had to offer... Normally when you think of a post-apocalyptic landscape, you don't think of women as hot as Charlize Theron running around. It seems that director George Miller took this into account after he cast Theron for the Mad Max reboot. Charlize won't quite be a 10 in this movie. Really more of a 9.8. ABC Australia has confirmed that Theron's character in Mad Max: Fury Road will be missing part of her arm (presumably the bottom), with one-armed swimmer Annabelle Williams working as her stunt double. Hmmm, strange that a one-armed swimmer would need to pick up outside work. (via Coming Soon)

Riley Keough Hitched To ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/riley-keough-hitched-to-mad-max-fury-road/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/riley-keough-hitched-to-mad-max-fury-road/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Elvis's hot granddaughter Riley Keough is in talks to join Mad Max: Fury Road. Should she end up in the role, she'll play one of the "Five Wives," a convoy of women that Tom Hardy must protect. Polygamy is sooo hot right now. Joining Keough in the spouse pile are Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer, and Adelaide Clemens. No word yet on who will say I do to playing the fifth wifey. Hey, it's a good thing Mel Gibson isn't part of this sequel, right? Because he and wives? You know? That whole thing that's happening. You know what I'm talking about. (THR)
