FX series Taboo starring Tom Hardy releases new trailer

23 September 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Who doesn't love Tom Hardy? The man is an acting machine. From his breakout role in Bronson, to his recent role as Mad Max in Fury Road, where he not only filled the shoes of Mel Gibson, but he (arguably) even wore them better, Hardy always brings it. Hell, I'll be the first to admit I didn't like his Bane voice in The Dark Knight Rises, but damn if...

Interview: ‘Lethal Weapon’ Producers on Toilet Bombs and Sh*t We’re Too Old For

21 September 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon paired Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the first of four buddy cop films. It made Gibson a star, proving he was more than just Mad Max, and Glover made “I’m too old for this shit” a catch phrase that has lasted the decades. For 2016, Fox introduces a […]

Mad Max: Fury Road Prequel Movie Reportedly Circling Pre-Production, George Miller To Direct

19 September 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Imperator Furiosa is a character that resonated so much with moviegoers that many considered Charlize Theron’s one-armed badass to be the actual protagonist of last year’s action masterpiece, Mad Max: Fury Road.

It’s hardly surprising, then, that Furiosa has been the center of some back-and-forth reports regarding a potential sequel to George Miller’s white-knuckle ride, but after mustering a relatively soft $378 million at the worldwide box office, it’s fair to say that talk of a Fury Road follow-up hasn’t produced any tangible results – at least, results that we know of.

More News From The Web

A new report hailing from Herald Sun, however, claims that a Mad Max: Fury Road continuation is indeed circling pre-production Down Under, welcoming back the core trio of Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Miller himself. Said to be a prequel movie as opposed to a traditional sequel, the outlet »

The rumour has it that the film, a prequel, would focus on Charlize Theron’s character Furiosa. Theron’s character in Fury Road was undoubtedly part of the film’s huge […]

Mad Max: Fury Road prequel rumoured to shoot this year

18 September 2016 10:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 19, 2016

Mad Max: The Wasteland could be shooting by the end of the year, claims a new report...

George Miller was, even as the excellent Mad Mad: Fury Road garnered award nominations and hard cash, working on the idea of another Mad Max film (in fact, it was reportedly on his mind even as he was developing his acclaimed sequel). And according to a new article from Australia, the project he’s settled on is a prequel to the Fury Road story.

The Herald-Sun in Australia has broken the story, that’s neither been confirmed by Warner Bros or Miller. It reckons, though, that filming on the next Mad Max film will take place in and around the Broken Hill area of the country. The report also adds that production could even begin before the end of the year.

Furthermore, it also reports that Tom Hardy – who didn »

Mad Max: Fury Road prequel rumoured to be in pre-production in Australia

18 September 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller revealed that he was developing a further two instalments of the post-apocalyptic action franchise, and would be looking to move ahead with the next, Mad Max: The Wasteland, as soon as possible.

Since then, we’ve heard little in the way of movement with regards to the next film, but if – and this is a Major if – a report from Australia’s The Herald Sun is to be believed, pre-production is now underway on a Fury Road prequel at New South Wales’ Broken Hill Studios, and shooting could start before the end of the year.

The report goes on to state that both Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are slated to return, and the script will focus on the backstory of Theron’s character, Furiosa.

‘Mad Max: The Wasteland’: Prequel Starring Charlize Theron’s Furiosa Starts Pre-Production: Report

18 September 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Charlize Theron’s Furiosa was such a vital part of “Mad Max: Fury Road” that many considered her the film’s actual protagonist. This naturally led to speculation about a new installment in the series centering around her, rather than Tom Hardy’s Max, and Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper is now reporting that the supposed prequel is already in development.

A few details cast doubt on the report, namely that director George Miller will once again be returning to the helm of his post-apocalyptic franchise; the Aussie filmmaker has stated in interviews that, should he direct another “Mad Max” movie, it won’t be until he’s done something else first. The Herald Sun is saying that the untitled prequel “will be filmed in and around Broken Hill,” an area in New South Wales, »

Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition set for release in December

17 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has announced that audiences will soon be able to get their hands on George Miller’s much-discussed black-and-white cut of last year’s Mad Max: Fury Road, with the ‘Black & Chrome Edition’ set for release on DVD and Blu-ray from December 6th in the States.

The Black & Chrome Edition will also be included as a bonus feature on the new box set release Mad Max High Octane Collection, which includes Fury Road alongside the three original Mel Gibson films, Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

Miller has previously spoken about discovering the black and white version of the movie, which he described as “the best version”, stating that: “[It was] what we called a ‘slash dupe’: a cheap, black-and-white version of the movie for the composer. Something about it seemed more authentic and elemental. »

Mad Max: Fury Road Prequel Starts Pre-Production in Australia?

16 September 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready to return to Valhalla, because it looks like the next installment of the Mad Max franchise may very well already be underway. Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the best movies of 2015 and one of the biggest surprises both at the box office and during awards season. It makes sense that Warner Bros. would want to make a follow-up, but we hadn't heard anything about the movie getting underway. Until now.

Don't get too excited, given that nobody involved with the movie has officially said anything definitive, nor has Warner Bros., but a new report claims the movie is already well underway. According to the Herald Sun, a prequel movie with the working title of Mad Max: The Wasteland is currently gearing up for pre-production in Broken Hill, Australia. The tabloid has cited a "highly placed onset source" in regards to the rumor, for whatever that may be worth. »

Witness! Warner Bros. has finally – finally – locked down plans to unveil the monochromatic cut of George Miller’s scintillating action opus, Mad Max: Fury Road. And it’s releasing sooner than you may think.

It’s a version that has seemingly been kicking around for months now, and has surely been one of the most requested cuts of Fury Road following its release. That, and a behind-the-scenes peek at the painstaking work that went in to creating those jaw-dropping action sequences.

If you’re a fan of the film, then you’re in luck, because today also heralds the arrival of what is arguably the best effects showcase of Mad Max: Fury Road to date, shedding light on the ways in which George Miller and his crack team of stunt coordinators orchestrated apocalyptic chaos out on that Fury Road.
