It's been 45 years since the collapse of civilization, and resources such as water, food and oil are scarce. Survivors cling to life at the Citadel, a fortress controlled by the tyrannical Immortan Joe. When Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads a band of rebels on a daring escape through the Wasteland, she forges an alliance with haunted loner Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy). Together, they embark on a high-speed race through the desert, pursued relentlessly by the gangs of the apocalypse.

Mad Max is back! In your face, non-stop action that will blow your mind. Sure the story is paper thin but the amazing production design, gorgeous cinematography and relentless sequences makes it a must see.

Director: George Miller
Running time: 120 minutes
Released: 2015

After much teasing of it, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have finally announced the “Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition” for release on home video on December 6th. The two film collection includes the theatrical version of the film, and a specially remastered black and white with an introduction by George Miller describing his vision.

At the same time WBHE will release the “Mad Max High Octane Collection,” a four film box-set for Blu-ray and DVD containing all the Mad Max films in one-collection along with the aforementioned Black & Chrome edition of ‘Fury Road’, and for the Blu-ray set the 4K-Ultra HD version and UV Digital Copy version of the regular ‘Fury Road’ chucked in as well.

The collection will also include the new featurette “Road War” which talks about the production of “The Road Warrior,” and the previously released feature length documentary “Madness of Max”.

George Miller’s “Mad Max Fury Road” may be one of the most acclaimed blockbusters of the decade, but there’s no question that the production was an exhausting, very long and slightly troubled one.

Shot out in the remote deserts of Namibia over at least half a year, it was a huge and incredibly difficult to mount production. On top of that, Miller’s style is one where his vision isn’t something that’s fully clear until the final product is assembled and so actors can feel like cogs in the machine at times.

Actress Zoe Kravitz stopped by “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” recently and spoke about one of the most talked about elements – the feud between stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy. Kravitz attributes some of that friction to the working conditions on the set:

“Yeah…They didn’t get along. We were also in the desert for so long. I think everyone was tired and confused and homesick and we saw nothing but sand for six months. It’s just, you go crazy, you do. I actually don’t know if it was one issue. I just think they weren’t vibing.”

Hardy previously conceded he was a ‘d-ck’ during production and apologised to Miller at Cannes for being ‘frustrated’ during the film’s making. Theron at one point said: “From what I hear, he’s not like that on every movie – I hear he’s had good experiences.”

Over two years after its release, “Mad Max: Fury Road” director George Miller is suing Warner Bros. Pictures over unpaid earnings, a dispute that is a potential reason for Miller being hesitant to get to work on more “Mad Max” movies.

Miller famously overcame nearly two decades of setbacks to make the fourth movie in the action series which received near unanimous critical acclaim, six Oscars and took in $378 million at the box-office. According to SMH, the dispute is between Miller’s production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell and Warner Bros. Pictures and is over two key things.

The first is it included a condition that Kennedy Miller Mitchell would receive a $US7 million bonus if “the final net cost” of the movie was not more than $US157 million after certain costs were excluded from calculations. The second is that if Warner Bros. Pictures intended to seek another co-financier, it would first offer Kennedy Miller Mitchell the chance to provide finance. Justice Hammerschlag of the Australian Supreme Court of NSW says:

“On [Warner Bros’] calculations, Mad Max went over budget. If these calculations are right, [Kennedy Miller Mitchell] does not get a bonus. [But the production company] claims [Warner Bros] made a series of decisions which caused substantial changes and delays to Mad Max, which led to additional costs and expenses and that [the studio] wrongly took them into account in its over-budget calculation. If those costs are left out of account [Kennedy Miller Mitchell] says that Mad Max came in under budget.”

The production company’s claim against Warners is also for “misleading and deceptive conduct” for not informing it that additional costs due to the studio’s changes and delays would be included in budget calculations. The production company also claims Warner Bros entered into a co-financing agreement with RatPac Entertainment for 12.5% of the movie’s funding – breaching the agreement to give Kennedy Miller Mitchell first offer. In a statement, Miller and Mitchell tell the paper:

“[We are disappointed that] after all the hard work and success of the film, the studio failed to honour its obligations. Simply put, we are owed substantial earnings for diligent and painstaking work which spanned over 10 years in development of the script and preparation and three years in production of the movie,” they said. “That hard work resulted in a picture which found wide acclaim globally. We would much prefer to be making movies with Warner Bros than litigating with them but, after trying for over a year, we were unable to reach a satisfactory resolution and have now had to resort to a law suit to sort things out.”

Warner Bros responded with a short statement saying: “We disagree and will vigorously defend against these claims.” Warners lost a ruling this week that the dispute should be arbitrated in New South Wales (Kennedy Miller Mitchell’s home base) rather than in California (Warners home base).
