"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."
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.

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, »

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.
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 »

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. »

At the end of civilization, zombies greatly outnumber people and every day is a fight to see tomorrow. Just when he is about to give up this fight, rugged wanderer John Knox winds up being saved by a ragtag group of survivors. After initial suspicion, Knox proves his worth and slips into his new family in the wasteland. However when a war party of maniacal raiders assaults the camp they kidnap Sarah, Knox’s love interest and it’s up to Knox and the few who escaped the attack to gather what resources they can (including zombies!) to launch an all-or-nothing rescue mission on the raiders’ home fortress.
Seeing it as another low-budget zombie flick, I had little hope for Zombie Horde – however despite some flaws, »
