Mad Max: Fury Road's Sequel Is Ready To Go

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Yeah, people monkeyed with superheroes and CGI this weekend at the San Diego Comic Con. But one dude just decided to nut up and bring it . George Miller's trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road turned Hall H into a barbeque, and his footage roasted weenies on top of everyone. Warner Bros. spent a lot of money and a couple of years making this movie, and the gamble that might pay off is a return trip to the wastelands of Australia. The question is, will you be prepared for Mad Max: Furiosa? In an interview with Film School Rejects during Comic Con, George Miller unveiled his plans for Mad Max: Furiosa, saying that they already have a script for the film, as well as a novelization of even more, unrelated Mad Max material. "In order to tell this story, we came up with two others. We.ve written »

George Miller Talks Mad Max: Fury Road At Comic-Con 2014

10 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It was a big year for Mad Max at Comic-Con. Gracing the cover of the Entertainment Weekly exclusive to the con, a Hall-h panel, and the release of the trailer all brought a noticeable buzz to patrons old enough to remember the originals and those seeing the character for the first time. With great pleasure, we attended an intimate press conference with Director/Writer George Miller and Producer Doug Mitchell, who discussed the challenges of bringing this movie to the big screen and teased additional adventures planned for Max beyond Fury Road.

It comes as no surprise, especially after the release of the trailer, that we are seeing a much younger Max in this film. We’ll be seeing a man closer to the recent wounds of losing his family, and that will be mirrored by the desert environments and the people that inhabit it.

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

George Miller Reveals Mad Max: Fury Road Sequel Script Already Written

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the movies that departed Comic-Con with the most wind in its sails this year was definitely Mad Max: Fury Road, which debuted a first trailer to widespread acclaim from fans of the dystopian franchise. And though we have a while to wait until the film, which stars Tom Hardy as Max and Charlize Theron as a new character named Furiosa, hits theaters next summer, recent comments by George Miller suggest that Fury Road will almost certainly lead in to even more Mad Max madness.

During the Comic-Con press conference, Miller revealed that he has already begun putting together sequels to Fury Road:

“In order to tell this story, we came up with two others. We’ve written the screenplay of one and the novelization of another, but it’s a very rough novel. We kept working on them while we were working on other things.”

The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Comic-Con Trailer Will Blow Your Mind (Video)

15 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

One of the highlights of this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con was the section of the Warner Bros panel dedicated to next summer's "Mad Max: Fury Road." The presentation lasted around 10 minutes and left everyone in Hall H to pick their jaws up off the floor. Thankfully, if you didn't make it to San Diego this weekend, we've got a sneak peek for you with a shorter trailer comprised of some of the same footage screened this weekend. It should do the trick.

The footage opens the same way the Comic Con reel did: with a two-headed lizard scurrying across the sun-bleached tundra. (Clearly, things in the future are positively radioactive.) The lizard darts towards Tom Hardy as Mad Max, taking over the iconic role from Mel Gibson, who essayed the character in three movies ("Mad Max," "The Road Warrior" and "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome"). Max steps on the lizard, which »

Behold! The New "Mad Max: Fury Road" Trailer

19 hours ago | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Director George Miller made us believe in a young Mel Gibson as "Mad Max" in 1979, heck he even made us believe that animals can talk in "Babe!" Now, the Australian director is making us believe that we need another hero in the form of Tom Hardy in the new "Mad Max: Fury Road."

The "Inception" star slides into Gibson's shoes in the sequel which had all of Comic-Con buzzing when the trailer premiered at the convention.

In the press conference at Comic-Con for the film, Miller said, "Of course it's based on the same character that they'll play, the lone warrior in the wasteland disengaged from the rest of the world."

Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also star. The franchise reboot will debut in theaters on May 15, 2015.

I can't wait to see Tom Hardy in the role of Mad Max! »

Updated: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Trailer Comes Crashing In [With Posters]

23 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mad Max: Fury Road is the long awaited 4th instalment in the popular dystopian franchise. It sees Tom Hardy take on the role of Max from Mel Gibson, who may not be the best leader of a franchise these days. The trailer shows Hardy in captivity for the most of it, while Charlize Theron leads a band of women through the hellish landscape. This is an astonishingly action packed trailer filled with the kind of excessive car chasing and smashing we would expect. Granted, the inclusion of CGI effects is commonplace these days, but when an older franchise is brought back without a reliance on practical effects, it does take some getting used to.

George Miller, the man behind Happy Feet, directs, and I suppose it’s worth mentioning the versatile Aussie was also responsible for the original Mad Max trilogy. This will hopefully lend a lot of consistency to »

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Cast Is Creepy and Crazy In New Posters

27 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tom Hardy is your new Max Rockatansky, while Charlize Theron is a cyborg arm.

Fans have been waiting for almost 30 years for a new installment in the cult classic Mad Max franchise, and Warner Bros. is finally releasing several new glimpses at the long-awaited film. In addition to the trailer (Watch), they put out a series of four new posters that show some of the insane costumes and vehicles that will populate Max's post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Mad Max: Fury Road stars Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, a road warrior scraping by a meager existence out in the wastelands of a desolated world. Aided by only a shotgun in his struggle to survive, Max's world "is fire and blood," according to the recent trailer that debuted at Comic-Con.

Seems the Long Wait for 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Might Have Been Worth It

27 July 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

For starters, it's nice to see something promoted at Comic Con that a) I didn't have to fly to San Diego to stand in line to watch and b) actually looks and sounds as if it could be something worth watching out for. When I first read director George Miller didn't have a script for Mad Max: Fury Road, instead using 3,500 storyboards to write the film and map it out visually, that got my attention. And then this trailer dropped today and sort of made me stand back and say, "Damn, maybe this long wait was worth it." The first time I actually wrote about the film, at least as far as I can tell, was October 2009 when Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron were attached to project. Filming, however, didn't begin until July 2012, wrapped December 2012 and reshoots then took place in November 2013. The release date has been all over the »

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Trailer Delivers Insane Rush of Action

27 July 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mad Max: Fury Road has been a long time in coming. Writer and director George Miller began the dystopian action franchise with the original Mel Gibson installment in 1979, followed closely by Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981 and Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome in 1985. He reportedly hit a wall while trying to concoct the fourth chapter, but finally found his bearings on the story a decade ago and began shooting all the way back in 2012.

Mad Max: Fury Road Kills it with a Trailer

Don't delay! Just have your eyes melt with this first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road!

I don't need to tell faithful Qe readers about the importance and influence of George Miller's Mad Max trilogy. For most of us, these were the films that turned us on to the post apocalyptic genre in the first place. Sure, they were, as Miller is so fond of putting it, "westerns on wheels," but you can see the mark of his punk rock vision of the future wasteland on almost every Pa film that's followed.

And so here we are: looking down the barrel of a Mad Max prequel (reboot? We can argue about that, I suppose). Of all the reboots and sequels we've gotten over the past 10 years, this one had got to rank up there with Prometheus in terms of anticipation.

Comic-Con: Experience the Insanity of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

27 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

After over a decade of trying, director George Miller finally got to make another entry in the Mad Max series…almost two years ago. The film began shooting all the way back in the fall of 2012, but it wasn’t until this year’s Comic-Con that anyone saw a lick of footage from Mad Max: Fury Road. The action-packed trailer impressed those in Hall H, thanks to plenty of practical stunts, muscular action, and a promising glimpse of a return to one of the coolest worlds and character ever put to film. Max is now played by Tom Hardy, who is of course a beast of a man that’s well-suited for the character once played by Mel Gibson. Will Hardy’s performance reflect Gibson’s iconic work as Max or is Hardy and Miller going in a different direction? That’s a question director George Miller answered in the press conference for Mad Max: Fury Road, a »
