'Mad Max': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Mel Gibson Classic

12 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"It's that rat circus out there, I'm beginning to enjoy it. Look, any longer out on that road and I'm one of them, a terminal psychotic, except that I've got this bronze badge that says that I'm one of the good guys."

And so we were introduced to the ticking time bomb of fury that is Mel Gibson, at least on screen, in "Mad Max."

Released 35 years ago this week (on April 12, 1979), George Miller's film about a near-future cop who turns vigilante when a biker gang kills his partner and his family, made an international star out of Gibson, made Miller an A-list director, and helped put the new wave of Australian cinema on the world map. It also launched a franchise that continues to this day; next year, Miller will finally release the long-gestating "Mad Max: Fury Road," with Tom Hardy taking over as Max.

Lorenzo's Oil

10 April 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Nick Nolte and an Oscar-nominated Susan Sarandon play the couple fighting to save their young son from a rare, degenerative brain disease in this fact-based drama. Peter Ustinov is among the many doctors who say there's no cure for Lorenzo, but that doesn't stop his parents from trying to find one. After Mad Max and The Witches of Eastwick, director George Miller shows his versatility with a heartfelt but clear-eyed telling of an extraordinary true tale. »

Photos From 2008 Justice League Movie That Never Happened

9 April 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Choreographer Greg Van Borssum posted a few photos of the cast for the $200 million "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros was developing back in 2007 with director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet). Check out the photos below. At the time, "Superman Returns" flopped in theaters, which is why the studio recast Superman with DJ Cotrona and hired Armie Hammer as Batman, despite the fact that Christian Bale was still playing the character in "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Other cast members included Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Not in the photos are Common as John Stewart (aka Green Lantern), Anton Yelchin as Wally West, Zoe Kazan as Iris West and Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth. The film obviously never happened and Warner Bros is now »

7 April 2014 10:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum has posted some interesting photos today - personal shots from back in 2007 of the cast of George Miller's adaptation of the "Justice League" property which was cancelled before production began.

Van Borssum posted the photos up on the blog Rust Belt Flicks. The cast and crew were in rehearsals in Australia for the film at the time of the photos.

Amongst those pictured in the shots are Armie Hammer (Batman), Adam Brody (The Flash), DJ Cotrona (Superman), Jay Baruchel (the villain Maxwell Lord), Santiago Cabrera (Aquaman), Teresa Palmer (Talia al Ghul), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman) and Hugh Keays-Byrne (Martian Manhunter).

Check Out the 'Justice League' Cast from Unmade George Miller Movie

7 April 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum is offering up a piece of 'what if' Hollywood history today, as he shares photos of the Justice League cast assembling for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's canceled adaptation.

Way back in 2007, after Superman Returns proved to be a disappointment, Warner Bros. planned to move forward on a Justice League movie that recast the Man of Steel with D.J. Cotrona and gave us a new Batman in Armie Hammer, even though Christian Bale was in the midst of his The Dark Knight trilogy at the same time. Also seen in the first photo are (from bottom) director George Miller, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. Next row finds Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, stuntman Greg van Borssum, and producer Barrie M. Osborne (The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers »

Justice League Cast Assembled... For George Miller's Cancelled Film (Bts Photos)

7 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »

10 directors who made belated returns to their franchises

3 April 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Ryan Lambie 4 Apr 2014 - 06:26

From Francis Ford Coppola to George Miller, we take a look at 10 directors who made belated returns to the franchises they created...

There's nothing new about directors returning to the stories and characters they first brought to the screen years before. Director Fritz Lang directed his first film featuring the mesmeric master of disguises Doctor Mabuse in 1922; he then returned to make The Testament Of Dr Mabuse in 1933, before heading back one final time for The Thousand Eyes Of Dr Mabuse in 1960 - the director's last film.

In recent years, however, it's become increasingly common for directors to return to the film series they began years earlier. It's an attempt, perhaps, to return to themes that still interest them, or to tell a new story in the same landscape as before, or maybe because of a Hollywood deal too lucrative to turn down. As the selection below proves, »

The big blockbusters of summer 2015

28 March 2014 4:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Simon Brew 31 Mar 2014 - 05:42

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup

Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.

But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.

We kick off at the start of April (although note that March has Kenneth Branagh’s live action Cinderella movie, »

Feature: Comic Book Movies That Almost Happened

22 March 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Today most fans would agree we are in the golden age comic book movies, or are about to set sail into the golden age. We are lucky enough to have comic book movies that not only respect the source material, but are enjoyable for everyone. Sadly, years ago we were not anywhere near where we were today. Let us reflect upon what unfortunately could have been. George Miller's Justice League: Mortal This mysterious yet well rumored catastrophe has been something fans have been wondering about for years. Warner Brothers hired screen writers Kieran and Michelle  Mulroney to pen the film, with George Miller directing. The infamous Writers Strike put the film on hold for a period of time but when the strike was over major changes were made. The (questionable) decision was then made to shoot the film in full motion capture (think Beowulf). But, problems started to occur and quickly at that. »

New look at Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road

21 March 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fourth installment in George Miller's post-apocalyptic Mad Max series has been a long time coming, but we've now got just over a year to wait before Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) steps into Mel Gibson's shoes for the long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road, and a new image has surfaced online giving us another look at Hardy as Max Rockatansky...

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Mad Max: Fury Road is set for release on May 15th 2015, with a cast that also includes Charlize Theron (Prometheus), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max), Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian »

New Image Of Tom Hardy In 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' Will Plot Fill The Gap Between 'Mad Max' & 'Road Warrior'?

21 March 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With production starting in 2012, reshoots taking place last fall, and a lengthy post-production process that won't see the movie released until next fall, as of right now there aren't many details about George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road." It's a return to the Aussie franchise with Tom Hardy now taking the name Max Rockatansky, but a new peek has arrived. A fresh image surfaced online in the past couple of days (via Reddit), with Tom Hardy looking appropriately gritty on top of a big rig. But what about the plot? What will this one actually be about? All we really know is that it might start a new trilogy, but where will it fit in the lineage of movies? Perhaps the following is a clue. Towards the end of 2013, some savvy fans noticed that the Wikipedia page for "Mad Max: Fury Road" had been updated with a pretty thorough plot description. »

Here's a New Image of Tom Hardy As Mad Max in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

21 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

No other upcoming movie is as tantalizing as Mad Max: Fury Road. Here's a film that's been in the works for years, suffering numerous setbacks, but somehow through thick and thin director George Miller finally managed to return to the character who launched his big-screen career all the way back in 1979. In fact, when Mad Max: Fury Road finally arrives on May 15, 2015, it will be 30 years since the last Mad Max movie was in theaters. That means fans of this franchise (the first two Mad Max movies are absolutely brilliant, by the way, and the third stars a maniacal Tina Turner) have been waiting three decades to welcome this postapocalyptic badass back to the big screen.  This time around Mel Gibson has been replaced by Tom Hardy, who you can see above in a new image...

Check Out Tom Hardy In New Mad Max: Fury Road Image

21 March 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been almost 30 years since Mel Gibson last stepped into the role of Mad Max in 1985′s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, so it’s honestly surprising that a Hollywood reboot of the post-apocalyptic action franchise took this long to come around. Next summer, The Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy will step into the iconic role for Mad Max: Fury Road, a remake that finds the character fleeing across the Wasteland (a devastated Australia) with a group of people in a vehicle called a War Rig, driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron).

That plot begs more questions than it answers, and our second look at Hardy in full uniform (above), like the first snap we got of the actor in character, doesn’t do anything to clarify story details. A slightly extended synopsis that’s been making the rounds online just further impresses the fact that newcomers to »

New Look at Tom Hardy in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

21 March 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has delayed and delayed and delayed George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, but the fact they've given the troubled production a May 2015 release date means they haven't given up on it as you don't start the summer movie season off with a film you think is a complete failure. However, with all the delays it has meant we haven't seen much of anything having to do with the film, but today we get one more taste. The above image was posted on Reddit, featuring Tom Hardy as he takes on the role made famous by Mel Gibson. Hardy stars in Fury Road as Max Rockatansky, a hardened ex-cop in a future beset by gas shortages and marauding gangs. The story picks up after 1985's Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and centers on Max and the "Five Wives," a group of women Max must protect from the bad guys. »

Mad Max: Fury Road - New Photo of Tom Hardy

20 March 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's been awhile since we've seen anything from George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, but thanks to The Film Stage we have a new photo to share with you. It features Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky. The movie has been in development for years, and we still have to wait until 2015 before we actually get to watch the damn thing. I'm, excited about it though! Enjoy the photo because who knows when we will see anything else for the movie.

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

The movie will be released in theaters on May 15th, 2015. »

Disney's Pixar announces plans for The Incredibles sequel

19 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Animation studio also to produce Cars 3 film, along with Finding Nemo follow-up, Finding Dory

Disney-owned animation studio Pixar is to produce a sequel to the Oscar-winning animation The Incredibles, more than a decade after Brad Bird's hugely popular tale of a family of retired superheroes first hit cinemas.

The new instalment was announced yesterday by Walt Disney's Bob Iger at a briefing for shareholders in Portland, Oregon. Iger also said Pixar would work on a second sequel to 2006's Cars.

The Incredibles is set in a world in which superheroes exist but have been banned from crime fighting. Mr Incredible (voiced by Craig T Nelson) has been living incognito as plain old Bob Parr when a mysterious offer gives him the chance to return to action. Soon he and his wife Helen (nee Elastigirl), along with their three children (who are developing superpowers of their own), are caught up »

Fantastic Four Recasting Rumors Debunked

14 March 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Fantastic Four reboot in development over at 20th Century Fox has had its fair share of delays, with Josh Trank coming on board the project all the way back in July 2012 and the release date getting pushed back from March 2015 to June 2015 last year, but you can.t believe every behind-the-scenes story you read about the production. Take, for example, the new rumor that has cropped up over at Bleeding Cool. While the site.s sources told them that all of the work that had been done of the project was being abandoned, we have confirmation from the studio that the report is 100% false. Dumping a major comic book movie even after it has cast its leads isn't completely unheard of - just ask those who were involved with George Miller's Justice League - but this rumor was pretty suspicious from the start. Fox is doing everything they »

Movies with perfect pace

2 March 2014 11:54 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Movies with perfect pace aren’t those that move quickly or slowly - they’re the ones that move at the right speed for the story being told and the style being used to tell them. There are lots of movies that I love which fail the pace test, including 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Superman (1978), Dawn Of The Dead (1979), Apocalypse Now (1979) and Taxi Driver (1976).

Consider in this list - and those aforementioned that didn’t make it to the finals - that pace is not the only thing a film needs to offer, and that it can still be a terrible film even if it is well-paced. So this is not a collection of ‘best’ movies - it’s a collection of movies with great…

...timing.

Psycho (1960)

What contrasts. What innovation. Hitch’s adaptation of Robert Bloch’s gory, Ed Gein-inspired shocker knows exactly when to speed you uncomfortably to an uncomfortable place, »
