"Mad Max: Fury Road" - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

22 July 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new cover at from the upcoming "Mad Max: Fury Road" Blu-ray release, plus take another look @ the film, from the movie review site "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca,:

Michael Stevens For 'The Good':

"'Mad Max: Fury Road', director George Miller's sardonic $150 million budgeted 3D demented demolition derby of a movie, throws everything to the wind and cuts to the chase for an insanely wild 2 hour ride...

"...in a ferociously adrenalized crash 'n burn', petrol-pumped speed-demon of a movie that leaves his previous "Mad Max" trilogy in the dust...

"The new film gets into gear early on, revved-up by grotesque, dystopian death cult-followers, scrambling like vile Rat Patrols through the Namibian desert...

"...accompanied by explosive set pieces, broken CG bodies and scattered car debris.

"Like a cranked-up 'Cirque Du Soleil', led by a pounding dirge and amplified death-metal rock music ...

"...Miller drops »

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?

19 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Now we've passed the halfway point of the year and summer blockbuster season is beginning to wind down, what better time to deliver our half-term report on 2015 so far?

From Oscar contenders like Selma and Foxcatcher to blockbusters Mad Max: Fury Road and Jurassic World, it's been a strong year for cinema. Read on to find out our rankings then comment below with your favourites...

15. Fast & Furious 7

The Fast & Furious saga's latest instalment carried with it all the insane action sequences and stunts we've come to expect, but few could have predicted just how emotionally affecting the film turned out to be.

The death of Paul Walker in November 2013 meant that production had to be called off while the filmmakers figured out how to complete the movie without him, and they gave him (and character Brian O'Connor) the perfect send off. Sometimes life presents a fork in the road »

Mad Max: Fury Road UK Blu-ray release won't include George Miller's black-and-white cut

17 July 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We might not see that silent black-and-white version of Mad Max: Fury Road after all.

When director George Miller recently confirmed that he had created an alternative monochrome version of the movie, Digital Spy decided to create a black-and-white cut of the trailer to see just what Miller's preferred version of the film might look like.

However, despite the fact the blockbuster works surprisingly well without dialogue, it looks like Miller's requests for the cut to be included on the Blu-ray went unheard, as it was not mentioned at all in the details for the UK Blu-ray release of the film.

The list of special features on the UK Blu-ray are as follows:

- Maximum Fury: Filming Fury Road Featurette

- Mad Max: Fury on Four Wheels Featurette

- The Road Warriors: Max and Furiosa Featurette

- The Tools of the Wasteland Featurette

- The Five Wives: So Shiny, »

Strangerland Review

17 July 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Australian Outback is a favorite crucible for filmmakers – its sun-scorched expanses are like a skeleton of stone and dust, an angry terrain, devoid of life or any of the resources necessary to sustain it. Its barren hostility has served as the backdrop for many an immersive production, from David Michod’s relentlessly grim The Rover to George Miller’s post-apocalyptic Mad Max trilogy. Without fail, its sprawl and mystique have imbued films set around or in it with a natural dread, a sense of powerlessness against ancient, inhuman elements.

And Strangerland, Kim Farrant’s charged but deeply flawed drama about parents in crisis, makes effective use of it too. Here, the Outback functions as a creeping fever, lurking and slowly advancing, threatening to overwhelm the European outsiders who don’t belong there. And Catherine and Matthew Parker (Nicole Kidman and Joseph Fiennes) can feel it hot against the back »

Watch: Filmmaker Creates Goofy Trailer for Mashup 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Max Fury Road'

16 July 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Watch: How Did 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Pull Off Its Mind-Blowing Stunts? Other than plenty of cars and the liberal use of the word 'mad,' George Miller's action epic "Mad Max: Fury Road" and Stanley Kramer's classic comedy "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" have little in common. Nevertheless, Ezequiel López used his editing skills to create a bizarre yet extremely entertaining trailer for the mashup of the two: "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Max Fury Road." Using audio from a "Max" trailer and footage from "World," López was able to match the disparate works impressively. Audio and visuals line up in hysterical fashion, making for what would be a strange yet engrossing feature length film. One can only hope that in the world of desert wastelands and comic rat races Valhalla lay just down the road, all shiny and chrome. Watch the video above, »

Watch Conan O'Brien's incredible Mad Max-inspired Comic-Con entrance

9 July 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Conan O'Brien is making a bid to be the king of this year's Comic-Con with four special episodes of his late night talk show broadcasting straight from the geek gathering in San Diego.

Not only that, but the TV host is moderating the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, the cast's last ever appearance together at Comic-Con.

Conan needed to arrive in San Diego in some style - and he did just that, suiting up to play the flamethrowier guitarist from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Not only that, but Jimmy Vivino and the Basic Cable Band dressed up as the War Boys and sidekick Andy Richter filled the role of Immortan Joe.

We might be missing a Furiosa, but this is anything but mediocre.

The Ten Coolest Cars in Movie History

8 July 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Cars have been a staple of motion pictures since the earliest Keystone Kops two-reel comedies a century ago, usually providing fodder for chase scenes and general mayhem. Whether they’re breaking land-speed records, flying through the air defying laws of aerodynamics, or driven by intrepid heroes pursuing bad guys, cars and movies go together like…well, like movies and popcorn.Like movies and tickets. Like cars and tickets. Wait…let’s just get on with the list, shall we?

Here are the ten coolest cars in movie history, in no particular order:

1. Rendezvous: 1976 Mercedes-Benz 450Sel 6.9

Director Claude Lelouch mounted a camera on his 1976 Mercedes and tore through the early morning streets of Paris at breakneck speeds, cheating only slightly in post-production by overdubbing the sound of a Ferrari 275 Gtb engine with that of his Benz’s. Three people were in the car, with Lelouch at the wheel, »

The Conversation: 2015’s Top 10 Theatrical Releases So Far…

6 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the first half of 2015 officially coming to a close, it’s time for our mid-year list of best theatrical releases. As seems to be the trend, a bulk of these titles were selections premiering in the late fall circuit of 2014, a move sometimes granting offbeat art-house selections a bit more breathing room (though not always). Here’s a glance at what represents the best of the year thus far, including two directorial debuts, one posthumous work, and one studio feature:

10. The Salt of the Earth – Dir. Wim Wenders & Juliano Ribeiro Salgado

Premiering at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, German auteur Wim Wenders explores the prolific career of Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado, here with the help of his son, Juliano Ribeiro Salgado serving as co-director. Known for capturing catastrophic events in striking fashion, the documentary finds the artist in search of something positive after decades documenting human nature at its worst. »

The highs and lows of the soft movie reboot

2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This summer has seen Mad Max, Jurassic World and Terminator movies hit cinemas. Ryan looks at what’s good and bad about the soft reboot...

This piece contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road and Terminator: Genisys

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.

Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »

Mel Gibson: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

30 June 2015 1:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

Mel Gibson, whom I interviewed for Venice Magazine in late 2000, was my first real childhood hero I sat down with. If you were a Gen-x male, Mel Gibson was the closest thing we had to Paul Newman, Steve McQueen and Sean Connery: a guy's guy whom guys wanted to emulate and women wanted to copulate. If you were a guy who liked girls, the math in the previous equation was pretty simple: be like Mel. Sadly, Gibson's life has taken a very public turn for the worse in the last decade, since his personal legal and troubles stemming from a 2006 DUI arrest in Malibu were made public, one from which his image has yet to fully recover. It was an unfortunate fall from grace for a guy who literally had Hollywood, and the world, in the palm of his hand after sweeping the 1995 Oscars with his box office smash "Braveheart. »
