Many of you were surprised when it was announced Mad Max: Fury Road will be hitting theaters in 2015. Most assumed the movie would be released at some point next year, even with the recent additional filming. There have been rumors that production hasn’t gone smoothly (to say the least) for Mad Max: Fury Road, so how worried should we be about the film’s quality? In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, director George Miller says there hasn’t been any »

During his first interview about "Mad Max: Fury Road," director George Miller spoke about whether Mel Gibson, who starred as the original Mad Max, will have a cameo in the new movie. "It would have been nice somehow, but no, it's not true." He went on to say that despite delays, "Mad Max: Fury Road" has been testing very well with audiences. "Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy," he explained. "There has been a lot of doubt about it. [People saying] 'it took so long,' but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year (May 15th, 2015)." When asked if Max's Interceptor will appear in the movie, Miller replied: "Without giving too much away, there is one that appears." »
The star of the original films will not make an appearance in the reboot, as had previously been rumoured.
"It would have been nice somehow but, no, it's not true," director George Miller told The Sydney Morning Herald.
"Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,'' he added. ''We're very happy.
"There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.''
The film, which was recently delayed from a release next year to Summer 2015, was apparently put back to avoid a clash with the 2014 World Cup.
Mad Max: Fury Road will be released on »
"Mad Max: Fury Road," the long-gestating fourth installment of the apocalyptic action franchise, gained some steam last month when it received an official release date. Director George Miller is keeping positive about the project, revealing new details about the shoot and audience testing, and denying one major rumor about a certain Australian actor's cameo.
In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Miller discussed shooting what he called "bookend" scenes for "Fury Road," including one finished just last month involving a huge truck crash. Miller acknowledged that he'd spent a "crazy" amount of time on the production -- which was conceived in the early 2000s but was delayed first by 9/11, then by a series of weather disasters -- and that the long shoot (which began in July 2012) was necessary because "Fury Road" is "a really difficult movie" with "pretty constant action [on-screen]."
But Miller insisted that despite the drawn-out process, he was not filming any reshoots, »

George Miller has given an update on the much-delayed Mad Max: Fury Road, and sounds pretty positive about the state the film is currently in. “Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,” says Miller. “We're very happy. “There has been a lot of doubt about it, [with people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.” As to that delay, Miller goes on to explain that the decision to move the film away from 2014 was based on a desire...

Eyebrows were raised when Warner Bros finally announced a release date for the fourth Mad Max film, Mad Max: Fury Road, and it turned out that the movie was still well over a year away. In spite of the fact that the film finished its main block of shooting some time ago, we're not going to get to see it until May 15th 2015. However, chatting to the Sydney Morning Herald, director George Miller has now explained why.
"Our film. luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy", he said. "There has been a lot of doubt about it ... but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year".
That's not yhe only reason for the delay, »
"It would have been nice somehow but, no, it's not true" he tells The Sydney Morning Herald. Miller has spent the last few weeks doing a final bit of additional photography in Sydney, Australia on the film.
Miller says there has been "no reshoots at all," rather filming has been confined to scenes that bookend the movie as he always intended to film the start and finish of the movie in Australia. Some brief "augmenting shots" have also been done. Production will wrap on the Fox Studios lot within the next fortnight.
An early version of the movie has also already been test screened: "Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy. There »

It seems these days that any strong genre film spawns a wealth of imitators, but for some reason, the unique mix of post-apocalyptic scavenging and car combat introduced with the original Mad Max has seen few other entries. And in recent years, it seemed even George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would have trouble making it to completion.
Despite setbacks, the director revealed on set in Australia that as filming completes, the film is already testing ‘extremely well,’ even without a cameo from the original ‘Max.’
After reports of re-shoots first surfaced, skepticism continued to build, with the implication being that Fury Road may not have been testing as ...

Last week, director George Miller wrapped up reshoots on his long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road in Australia. In his first interview about the project, the filmmaker confirmed that original Mad Max star Mel Gibson is not making a cameo appearance.
"It would have been nice somehow but, no, it's not true."
The director also revealed that the film is testing very well with audiences.
"Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well. We're very happy. There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year."
It was also mentioned that Warner Bros. issued a May 2015 release date so it wouldn't be competing with the 2014 FIFA World Cup in several international markets. George Miller also praised his cast and crew for making it a very safe production.
"It's been a really difficult movie. »
We suppose there are two ways to look at Warner Brothers plans to release "Mad Max: Fury Road" during the summer of 2015 (which will essentially be three years after filming began): either the glass is half full or the glass is half empty. And for director George Miller, who is now in the midst of additional shooting on the picture, he's brimming with optimism about his movie, about WB's plans for it and even some of the early feedback he's been receiving. ''Our film, luckily, after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,'' the director told The Sydney Morning Herald. ''We're very happy. There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.'' It should also be noted that part of the studio's decision to hold the »

Having been in production for a long time, it was announced just recently that Mad Max: Fury Road will be seeing a release in the already quite loaded summer of 2015. With filming having begun in the summer of 2012, and additional photography having started up just a few weeks ago , it's been a hard road for Mad Max back to the big screen. Though when speaking with The Sydney Morning Herald (Via The Playlist ) director George Miller says the film is testing very well. "Our film, luckily after a ridiculous amount of work, is testing extremely well,'' Miller said. ''We're very happy. There has been a lot of doubt about it, [people saying] 'it took so long', but Warners have delayed it until 2015 to go into the top weekend of the year.'' The site also »

The action sequel/reboot will see brilliant British actor Tom Hardy taking on the lead role (that launched the career of Mel Gibson) of the nothing-to-lose post-apocalyptic ‘Road Warrior.’ Max Rockatansky.

We’ve a brand new behind-the-scenes image of Hardy on the set of those reshoots (oops). Early word is Miller and his cast really have knocked the film out of the park and the additional filming is to set it up for expected sequel Mad Max: Furiosa. Being such a huge fan of the original trilogy, »

This is a new photo that has surfaced from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road featuring Tom Hardy in the title role. This is only the second image we've seen of Hardy in the role, the first can be found here. The movie has completed shooting and is now in the post-production phase. So this photo was probably taken awhile ago. Hardy does look pretty badass in the role, but let's be honest... it's going to be hard to fill the shoes of Mel Gibson. Gibson was so awesome in those original films.
The long awaited Mad Max sequel is set to be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on »
