  • Can't wait for this. I used to be in the "No Mel, No Max" camp but Hardy is a great actor.

  • Funny I wasn't all that impressed those movies anyway and damned sure not interested in redos.

    Besides Tina Turner's breasts are finally to old.

    Can't anyone in hollywood write new scripts?

  • Tina Turner was in Thunderdome. I believe this is the remake of the original, "The Road Warrior".

    Thanks Taz I understood. But you know if 10 people go to see this they will remake all of them.

    As I recall The Road Warrior was the second wasn't it? Forgive me I was underwhelmed with most of them. Didn't get interested in Mel Gibson until the Danny Glover days.

  • Road Warrior was the first film, the Mad Max films came after.

    Though, I agree that some films shouldn't be remade. But, if you didn't care for it the first time, what's not to say you wouldn't like the remake? Take Judge Dredd for instance. The remake (or addition?) was much better.

    EDIT:
    I stand corrected. After checking IMDB, Mad Max was the original. I'm getting old.

  • Hmmm looks interesting. I will definitely check it out. I am a big fan of the series. Mad Max, Road Warrior, and Beyond Thunderdome. The Max character is pretty bad ass. The Humungus is one of my fav bad guys of all time.

    Stop remaking movies and come up with something new. What's going to be remade next? Planet of the Apes?

  • FYI, this is not a remake or a reboot, it's being treated as a sequel.

    I was thinking the Road Warrior one ended with him walking away from the decoy tanker filled with sand while the real fuel tanker got away.

  • Quit whining Dom, or change your name to Radish.

    This isn't a remake, its a sequel. Original director, who has taken 2 years just to make the cars for this film. No pussy CGI.

    I once broke up with a girl because she had never seen or heard of the Road Warrior series. I asked "so, you just think Mel is from Bird on a Wire, bitch?".

    I CAN'T WAIT.

    Thank you. Yeah, it's not a remake. I should have said that in the initial post for all the assuming numbskulls.

    Mel was offered the role FWIW but said a younger guy should take over. He said it would have been "Fat Max" had he stayed attached.

    That's a awesome about the girlfriend prerequisite.

    Sorry to say that ends our relationship, Zeb. It's been fun, I really appreciated your commitment to our relationship (kegels), but I just cant. We all have to have parameters in our life.

  • The first popular one in the states was the second one - The Road Warrior. So people always get them mixed up. I know I did. I saw Mad Max 2 aka The Road Warrior first and then saw Mad Max second. It made so much more sense when I saw the first one and finally figured out what he was so pissed about. But this was when I was like 12 or 13 years old, so I may be a bit mixed up.

    The Road Warrior is where he is out in the desert and they are fighting over gasoline. I think in the first one he was a cop and you see why he gets into the situation he is in out in the Outback in the second film. To many non-junkies of the series, they didn't know there was one made before the Road Warrior, because I believe it was the only one to get wide theatrical release here and was an early hit on video once tapes started becoming all the rage. Then of course everybody saw Thunderdome, because it actually had a budget.

    I for one loved the Road Warrior. It seems like Tom Hardy is the "it" guy right now and they are squeezing him in a lot of movies. At least he's not Dane Cook though, and actually has some talent. For those of you who chuckled at that, then I assume you understand the way hollywood works and how they start attaching a guy's name to every project. Sort of like Seth Rogen about 2 years ago. It became nauseating. Same with Ben Stiller for a streak of about 5 years there. I love Ben Stiller. Was a big fan of his since he was a teenager doing standup, but it was like they were throwing every script at him and he was saying, "Why not?"

  • From the picture in the OP, I'm guessing the plot revolves around Mad Max finding the missing sleeve to his jacket.

  • The only Tom Hardy movie I've seen is Lawless, which I really liked, I think he'll make a great Max. I really don't mind remakes (I know this is a "sequel.") I mean every movie these days is rehashed from something done years ago anyway, might as well cut the shit and just tell us what movie they stole the idea from right out of the gate. Plus I've kind of always liked seeing old movies from my youth (or my parents youth) redone with new ideas and updated quality.



    Also, Batman was broke already. Heath Ledger fixed it, and then it broke again when he died.

  • Shark Hawk nailed it.

    I think Mad Max was Mel's first movie,

    Road Warrior is among the best (80's cold war) Post Apocalyptic films, I believe there is a part in the chase scene where a stunt man dies, and its still in the final cut.

    Thunder dome was kinda like Temple of Doom, it tried too hard to keep the magic going and ends up Hokey.


    I like this knid of Re-boot, not re-make.

  • Here's a lil bit o production shots from filming, highlighting some of the vehicles built. It took about two years to begin filming, because they had to fabricate the cars. This is why the movie will rule, George Miller isn't going to go the CGI/effect route.

    Seriously, I'm not sure how any male could NOT dig shit like this.

  • Thank you for posting this.

    Another comment. I hope this sucker is a hard "R" rating. Not a Prometheus "we'll change it to an 'R' for marketing but it's actually PG-13". I want a dystopic, nasty, violent Max moviel.

  • To whomever said 'The Road Warrior' was the first MadMax movie...

    You are off. Way off. Off by 2 years and a continent or 2.

    The original Mad Max was an Australian film released in 1979. It is badass.

    The best thing about the decent sequel (Road Warrior) was Max's dog.

    And anyone who wants to see what Tom Hardy brings to the table needs to watch this movie:

    I know it's not a popcorn, summer blockbuster so its hard for you to relate. Isn't there a thread about the new Total Recall or something you can post in? I still dont know HOW you can be a Colin Farrell fan and have never seen In Bruges.
