George Miller started the Mad Max franchise, and launched his career, almost 35 years ago, but has come back to the series with Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy. Fury Road started filming over a year ago but finally received an official release date this week.

May 15, 2015 is the date slated for Mad Max to return to theaters across America and it has also been confirmed that it will be in 3D. Even though filming began in July 2012, Tom Hardy has confirmed that the extensive reshoots to take place are for “building more Mad Max.” Hopefully with the announcement of reshoots the production team will be shooting in stereoscopic instead waiting to convert the whole film to 3D in post-production.

Are you excited for a new Mad Max film? Does the delayed release schedule with combined reshoots, make you wary of what will be released? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

  1. Nope. I am not enthusiastic about this. “Beyond Thunderdome” cured me of any lingering love I had for the Mad Max franchise… like disco balls, white polyester pants suits and extra wide lapels, Mad Max was a product of its time that deserves to be allowed to molder away in its grave peacefully… of course, it might well be a perfectly good movie – rewrites, delays and reshoots don’t necessarily mean a bad movie, but I suspect that Casablanca is the exception that proves the rule. A Mad Max movie without Mel Gibson is a lot like a Terminator movie without Arnie. Sure, it CAN work – the Star Trek reboot has hit two out of the park in a row (something the original franchise was never able to do) but then again, George Miller is no J. J. Abrams.

  2. I was about to say “Pass” before realizing that would be a pun. You know, car movie.

    Still, I’m not interested. The look, feel, and music of the first two Mad Max movies made those movies. It cannot be repeated.

    Even if they crank up the violence and gore, all you really wind with is the remake of Death Race.
