Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that Mad Max: Fury Road is to join the 2015 blockbuster line-up, arriving in cinemas on May 15th, 2015, almost three years after director George Miller began shooting the latest instalment in the post-apocalyptic action franchise and thirty years after the release of the last movie, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
Mad Max: Fury Road sees Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) taking over the role of Max Rockatansky from Mel Gibson, while the supporting cast includes Charlize Theron (Prometheus), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max), Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian), Zoë Kravitz (X-Men: First Class), Riley Keough (Magic Mike), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Dark of the Moon), Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian), Josh Helman (Jack Reacher), Jennifer Hagan (Jack) and newcomers Abbey Lee Kershaw and Courtney Eaton. Here's the official synopsis...

Everyone’s favorite Australian post-apocalyptic franchise (that’s a thing, right?) is making a comeback, along with George Miller. Deadline reports that the rebooted Mad Max: Fury Road will be released May 15, 2015, with its original director at the helm. By then, it will have been 30 years since Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome was released — it was preceded by the original Mad Max in 1979 and The Road Warrior in 1981. Mel Gibson will also be back for the 3-D reunion, though not in the title role. That honor is going to none other than Tom Hardy, who we can only hope finds just as obscure an inspiration for his accent as he did for Bain. Nicholas Hoult and Charlize Theron round out the cast of exceedingly good looking non-Aussies. »

Warner Bros and Village Roadshow will bring the reboot to the big screen on May 15, 2015, 30 years after the last movie in the franchise Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

But, beyond Theron’s drastic hair change »

The fourth installment of the Mad Max franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road, is now officially set to open on May 15, 2015. That's almost exactly 30 years since the last film, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, graced the screens. (Feel old yet?) Franchise director George Miller returns for this iteration, which stars Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) as Max Rockatansky, along with Nicholas Hoult, Charlize Theron, Mel Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, and Riley Keough. No plot details are available at this time and there's no official statement as to the release date push back just yet. Summer 2015 is looking to be one of the biggest ever. This release date is otherwise unoccupied, but is just two week's after Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a week before Brad Bird's Tomorrowland and Paul Feig's Susan Cooper. »

Earlier this month, Tom Hardy described Mad Max: Fury Road's extensive reshoots as "building more Mad Max", but the movie - which started filming last July - may now finally be back on track. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow have today announced that the follow up to Mad Max, The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome will finally be released on May 15th, 2015. That's quite a wait, although they also confirmed that it will be in 3D, so that might...soften the blow? Are you guys looking forward to this release? Be sure to sound off below! »
In the history of indie film, sequels haven’t been very common. If we exclude horror movies, that is. And now documentaries. There’s Clerks II, S. Darko, John Duigan’s Flirting, Wayne Wang’s Blue in the Face, Lars von Trier’s Manderlay, What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? and I guess The Road Warrior (and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome). There tend to be weird circumstances and technicalities for a lot of them, too. One of the purest examples of an indie sequel is, of course, Before Midnight, which is even rarer for being a third part. It’s possibly the most beloved and critically acclaimed film of the year, and it could very well lead a new wave of follow ups to indie favorites and cult classics that aren’t necessarily easily banked genre flicks. Back in May we learned of another indie threequel in the works, Hal Hartley’s Ned Rifle. The »

Almost thirty years have passed since the release of George Miller’s sci-fi threequel Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, and that alone should be enough to tip even non-fans off to the fact that the fourth film in the series has had a little bit of trouble getting off the ground. Production on Mad Max: Fury Road has been plagued by a range of delays, and even with the movie apparently in the can it seems there is still work to be done.
The reasons behind the additional filming that’s planned for this month have so far been unclear, with some reports claiming that Miller was given ...

A distorted and autographed version of the above picture previously made the rounds, but now Ain't It Cool News has made available an official clean first look at Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky in Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth film in the Mad Max franchise in which Hardy takes on the role made famous by Mel Gibson, a hardened ex-cop in a future beset by gas shortages and marauding gangs. Fury Road is expected to hit theaters next year and has been in development and then production for one hell of a long time and it's not quite done yet as three more weeks of production will take place between now and the end of the year with casting for new characters reportedly taking place. Filming originally wrapped last December so who's to say what the end product will look like. That said, who knows what the story has »

While its certainly not the most popular of franchises, Vin Diesel’s shiny eyed mercenary has his cult following, and the new venture looks set to top whats come before. In the same way that Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome topped it’s the trilogy with higher production values, a more grizzled Mel Gibson and much sandier apocalyptic wastelands, Riddick looks to do the same with bigger aliens, sexier female counterparts and a higher level of violence. It’s worth getting on board for Battle Star Galactica’S Katee Sackhoff alone.
The film will also feature Karl Urban, Nolan Funk, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk, and Keri Hilson. With director and writer David Twohy once again at the helm.
Riddick is set to dig its R-rated fingers into the eyes of cinema-goers this September. Check out the the new featurette below, it »

Hello fellow Domesters! It’s me again, your number one top DomeWatcher, a genuine human being who is definitely not just a Dome in disguise. Last night’s episode of Under the Dome was filled with a hefty dose of deep-dive mythology. Angie finally proved that she’s good for something besides being held captive and wearing shirts intended for second graders. The most attractive meatbag had a hot new theory about the Dome, which I’ll refer to as the “Planetarium” theory. You ever hear that old joke about the Planetarium? Me neither! Dome! And on that note, it »

Amazon is having another pretty great sale on a couple of beloved movie franchises with deals on the Blu-ray editions of the Mad Max Trilogy and the Terminator Anthology for low prices. First off, something that will serve as a nice primer for next year's Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy, the Mad Max Trilogy includes Mad Max, The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and features Mel Gibson in what is arguably his most iconic role, as Max Rockatansky. Gibson will finally begin seeing a little more screen time soon with appearances in Machete Kills and The Expendables 3 coming up. It will be interesting to see if he can shed the negative public persona he's been carrying with him for several years now. To pick up the Mad Max Trilogy for only $27.99 click here. Next is another franchise that has a new installment on the horizon in Terminator 5. »

★★★★☆ At long last, the Mad Max trilogy finds a welcome home on Blu-ray via a decent transfer that retains the grain of the original film prints. This hugely popular series was able transcend its Antipodean setting to because a world-wide phenomenon, making a huge star of Mel Gibson and setting the blueprint for subsequent films from the action genre to follow. Of the three, 1979's Mad Max feels like the clearest distillation of so-called Ozploitation. From its raw, unpolished stunt work, to the larger-than-life, rough around the edges performances - a large part of its charm - the film still packs a powerfully visceral punch.
Made on a shoestring budget, the frenetic car chases and outrageous collisions are infinitely more thrilling as any modern CGI comparisons. Gibson's Eastwood-like poise was a huge factor in the success of the film. Allegedly turning up for his audition sporting a freshly mashed-up mug »

Mad Max Trilogy
Mad Max was an attempt to make a Us-style exploitation revenge movie in Australia during a time when the Aussie film industry was more geared towards costume dramas than action flicks. They ended up beating the Americans at their own game with this brutal tale of a cop hunting down the psycho-biker gang who killed his family. Things get even better with Mad Max 2: here we move into a post-apocalyptic world as Max hooks up with some survivors who're defending their oil refinery from marauding bandits. With no backstory or romance to derail the relentless pacing, it's a lean (Max only speaks about 16 lines of dialogue), mean (many main characters die) action classic. It looks stunning and authentic, with punishing pre-cgi stunts where you can actually see stuntmen get injured; many »

★★☆☆☆ Polish director Michal Marczak's awkwardly titillating documentary F*ck for Forest (2012) is extraordinary viewing. Dressed like a Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome flashmob, a troupe of capricious Berlin-based eccentrics film themselves having sex with each other and semi-willing volunteers. The videos are then made available by subscription via their website. The price for our perversions, we are told, is invested in environment protection and supporting the company's ecological cause. Yet, while a subject-matter so bizarrely seductive is bewitching to behold, F*ck for Forest shows potential without a point.
The blinding narcissism at the heart of this band of sexual liberals rapidly deconstructs the political message (if any) they intend to promote. Twirling and gyrating around in their semen-stained rags, the group approach bemused foreigners under the pretence of 'spreading the love' in the name of ecological activism. What Marczak captures instead is almost disheartening. A shrewd crew of very »

As fans we’ve seen wrestling go to some extreme measures that led to some epic encounters over the years. From Hell in a Cell to Last Man Standing, there have been many stipulations over the years that push the boundaries of brutality and the human anatomy. But there was only one match that went beyond… The War Games.
No matter where it was placed in schedule, the signature two cage spectacular was always the big draw for WCW. Strange alliances would be made and WrestleWars along with fall brawls would be forged in a team battleground of steel and blood . No Pinfalls. No Disqualifications. It’s just Submission or Surrender.
In the latest WWE DVD release: “War Games: WCW’s Most Notorious Matches” they look back at what happens when there are no other options and wrestling has go to war. I have to admit I was very »

Mel Gibson.s Mad Max is back and looking better than ever on Blu-ray in the Mad Max Trilogy . which collects 1979.s Mad Max, 1982.s Mad Max: Road Warrior, and 1985.s Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (making its Blu-ray debut) in a tin box. The three films are a cornerstone of the post-apocalyptic action genre and deliver in your face violence through incredible action sequence . despite being made for very modest budgets. Directed by George Miller and staring a then virtually unknown Gibson (at least until after the second film), the Mad Max franchise is set in the future in a burned out Australia and follow former highway cop Max Rockatansky as he journeys the Outback.
