Why You Should Care About Mad Max: Fury Road
It’s been 30 years. Better late than never, right?
Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome came out in 1985, with the pending fourth installment of this franchise floating around in developmental hell until Fury Road was greenlit. Either way, don’t call it a…
Reboot, because it’s not exactly that.
Yes, Mel Gibson is nowhere to be seen in Fury Road (Tom Hardy takes over the iconic role). And yeah, three decades is a long time in between installments. But using the word “reboot” indicates a new creative vision, and since original director George Miller is in control of Fury Road, that won’t be happening here. This is a good thing, because…
It looks absolutely brutal.
With a reported budget of $150 million, Mad Max: Fury Road is the most expensive installment in this franchise to date. And based on the trailers, it looks as if the money was well spent–this movie looks absolutely ridiculous. Explosions? Check. Frenetic chasing? All over the place! Classic Mad Max carnage? It sure looks like it. Sci-fi action fans will line up for this one.
