The star of the original films will not make an appearance in the reboot, as had previously been rumoured.
"It would have been nice somehow but, no, it's not true," director George Miller told The Sydney Morning Herald.
"Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,'' he added. ''We're very happy.
"There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.''
The film, which was recently delayed from a release next year to Summer 2015, was apparently put back to avoid a clash with the 2014 World Cup.
Mad Max: Fury Road will be released on »
"Mad Max: Fury Road," the long-gestating fourth installment of the apocalyptic action franchise, gained some steam last month when it received an official release date. Director George Miller is keeping positive about the project, revealing new details about the shoot and audience testing, and denying one major rumor about a certain Australian actor's cameo.
In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Miller discussed shooting what he called "bookend" scenes for "Fury Road," including one finished just last month involving a huge truck crash. Miller acknowledged that he'd spent a "crazy" amount of time on the production -- which was conceived in the early 2000s but was delayed first by 9/11, then by a series of weather disasters -- and that the long shoot (which began in July 2012) was necessary because "Fury Road" is "a really difficult movie" with "pretty constant action [on-screen]."
But Miller insisted that despite the drawn-out process, he was not filming any reshoots, »

Eyebrows were raised when Warner Bros finally announced a release date for the fourth Mad Max film, Mad Max: Fury Road, and it turned out that the movie was still well over a year away. In spite of the fact that the film finished its main block of shooting some time ago, we're not going to get to see it until May 15th 2015. However, chatting to the Sydney Morning Herald, director George Miller has now explained why.
"Our film. luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy", he said. "There has been a lot of doubt about it ... but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year".
That's not yhe only reason for the delay, »

Last week, director George Miller wrapped up reshoots on his long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road in Australia. In his first interview about the project, the filmmaker confirmed that original Mad Max star Mel Gibson is not making a cameo appearance.
"It would have been nice somehow but, no, it's not true."
The director also revealed that the film is testing very well with audiences.
"Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy. There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year."
It was also mentioned that Warner Bros. issued a May 2015 release date so it wouldn't be competing with the 2014 FIFA World Cup in several international markets. George Miller also praised his cast and crew for making it a very safe production.

We can pretend there are holiday movies that compare to the classic 1965 holiday special A Charlie Brown Christmas, but that’d be dumb. All those other movies are grating kite-eating trees compared to the smooth, calming vibe of A Charlie Brown Christmas, which manages to pack a lot of personality, humor, and conscience — not to mention Charlie Brown’s legendary insufferableness — into a very short time.
Here’s why it may be the best holiday film ever – even though it predates the existence of my main girls Peppermint Patty and Marcie, my rough-and-tumble Birkenstock dames who only came along in 1966 and 1971, respectively.
1. Charlie Brown is miserable from beginning to end.
While Charlie Brown is the protagonist of this moody yuletide, it’s not like we’re rooting for his spiritual renaissance. In fact, he’s such a dick that it’s impossible to sympathize with him. The zigzag-shirted legend starts »

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.
Mizuki – 47 Ronin (2013 Dir. Carl Rinsch)

Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »

Despite completing principle photography over a year ago, additional shooting (don’t call them reshoots!) is currently underway in Australia for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. The action sequel/reboot will see brilliant British actor Tom Hardy taking on the lead role (that launched the career of Mel Gibson) of the nothing-to-lose post-apocalyptic ‘Road Warrior.’ Max Rockatansky. Having recently confirmed the film will be converted for a 3D release, Warner Bros and Village Roadshow also stated it will arrive summer of 2015 on the 15th May – over 3 years since commencing production in South Africa.
We’ve a brand new behind-the-scenes image of Hardy on the set of those reshoots (oops). Early word is Miller and his cast really have knocked the film out of the park and the additional filming is to set it up for expected sequel Mad Max: Furiosa. Being such a huge fan of the original trilogy, »

This is a new photo that has surfaced from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road featuring Tom Hardy in the title role. This is only the second image we've seen of Hardy in the role, the first can be found here. The movie has completed shooting and is now in the post-production phase. So this photo was probably taken awhile ago. Hardy does look pretty badass in the role, but let's be honest... it's going to be hard to fill the shoes of Mel Gibson. Gibson was so awesome in those original films.
The long awaited Mad Max sequel is set to be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015

The 40-50 pounds that Christian Bale packed on to play inveterate conman Irving Rosenfeld in David O. Russell’s upcoming “American Hustle” appears all the more shocking when juxtaposed with the actor’s reedthin crackhead Dicky Eklund in “The Fighter,” his previous collaboration with the director.
“I think he might win a prize,” Russell joked to Variety when reminded of Bale’s feat for “American Hustle,” which opens Dec. 13.
The Motion Picture Academy has certainly been impressed by this kind of complete physical immersion in the past, awarding Oscars to Robert De Niro, who gained 60 pounds to play Jake Lamotta in blustery decline in “Raging Bull,” and Charlize Theron, whose supermodel looks were concealed by makeup and abnormal girth as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster.” Renee Zellweger, too, earned the Academy’s respect after she plumped up considerably for “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” earning a nomination for her effort. »

A lot of focus is always put on how short men in Hollywood are. It’s like the ultimate optical illusion, right? They seem so larger-than-life on screen, but in real life they’re itty-bitty Lilliputs with lifts in their shoes (we’re looking at you, Tom Cruise). The awkward part of the equation? There are a ton of super-tall female stars in celebdom! Pairing Amazonian beauties with legs up to their chins with tiny guys only makes the dudes look smaller — and the women look enormous.
Seems unfair. Women should be able to flaunt their height for the sexy-as-hell asset that it is — Napoleon-esque dudes, be damned. From Liv Tyler to Ciara, these 10 lusciously leggy superstars do exactly that. »

If you saw Spring Breakers but were still not convinced Vanessa Hudgens was trying to shed her squeaky-clean Disney image, then feast your eyes on the trailer for Gimme Shelter. Hudgens sheds her long locks to play a pregnant teen on the run from her junkie mother (Rosario Dawson). After a pit stop at her wealthy father's (Brendan Fraser) house, she winds up on the streets. It looks pretty bleak until she meets a kindly hospital chaplain (James Earl Jones) and finds a shelter for teens where she finally feels safe and at home. Source: Roadside Attractions The usually glamorous Hudgens is going full Monster-style Charlize Theron for this role, and I'm very curious to see if the transition is worth it. Though her grungy look is the most interesting part of this trailer, I was really excited to see Fraser pop up as her dad. The movie is out Jan. »
