Mad Max Fury Road
« on: October 28, 2012, 10:50:13 AM »
A great movie series is continuing next year. Some good "Prepper Porn" as I've heard Jack call the like. :) The king of post-apocalyptic fiction as far as I'm concerned. I searched the forum and didn't see anyone had mentioned it, so I thought I would throw up this topic for any fans of the series to discuss. If I duplicated a previous topic, I apologize, I just didn't see it. Different actor in the lead role however...don't know how that will work.

Sit seems that Brit Actor Tom Hardy will play Max Rockatansky (aka Mad Max)......he's a great actor but I would have rathered an Aussie play the role given its an Australian movie series set in Australia.  Someone like Sam Worthington from Terminator Salvation & Clash of the Titans would have been a great choice.

Anyway it will be interesting to see where they will take the series with "Fury Road".  There was talk that the movies production was in trouble but things seem to be progressing with filming actualy commencing back in July in Namibia.

The title suggests it will be a return of those awesome high octane V8 interceptors and car scenes of the original movie....but if this is a sequal to Mad Max 3, I don't know how it will all work as I thought that gasoline (petrol) had all but disappeared.

Bring on 2013!

The original was an Australian movie taking place in Australia and Max was played by an American, so why does it matter?

I think you'll find that Mel Gibson whilst born in the US, migrated with his family to Australia when he was young.  He was raised and educated in Australia and I'm pretty certain still holds an Aussie Passport. Perhaps we can say that he is an Australian-American which still gives him more 'local' cred that the new guy playing Max.

At the end of the day it doesn't matter as you say, as long as the movie is great.

He has American and Irish citizenship.

But that is worth about as much as a blade of grass. As you have said, let's hope it's good.

I heard that initially they were filming in Silverton, NSW but there was so much rain there that year that it looked too green.  Finally it was slowing them down so much they went to Namibia.

I went to the Mad Max museum in Silverton in 2011, expensive and small but with a run down kitsch quality that made it worth every penny.  http://www.silverton.org.au/madmaxmuseum.html

That is really cool. That guy is definitely into Mad Max to go as far as he did with that museum! Was the Interceptor authentic?

no.  He clearly marks his artifacts as authentic (from the movies) or reproductions.  A few of the smaller vehicles from Beyond Thunderdome are in the museum and a few costumes.  He has some authentic scripts and a lot of official studio photographs (you know how the studio has a still photographer running around taking pics of the whole production process?  He only has a few artifacts from Road Warrior and Mad Max.  The Interceptor is a reproduction as I recall.

Cant wait. I saw road warrior like a dozen times in the theater back in the 80"s. I loved that opening scene with that blower humming and the V8 roaring.

It's a beautiful trailer, can't wait to see it!

Since Terminator IV's mess, I always worry about action series reboots turning out to be over-slick but ultimately storyless movies.  But hey, I'm good for at least one movie ticket, and if it turns out to be good I'm there three more times and standing in line for the blu-ray come Christmas time.  In the meantime...
Build it or buy it, start it up and try it, maybe even fry it.  Otherwise you'll never know if it works.

I swear, there are times it seems like "Baofeng" is Cantonese for "hot mess."
