Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just released info that has made me extremely happy. One of my favorite sci-fi franchises of all time, ‘Mad Max,’ is coming to Blu-ray on June 4th. The set will include all three films that made Aussie Mel Gibson a household name during the 80’s and be released in a limited edtion tin case for $49.99. (This is the first time that Beyond Thunderdome has come to Blu-ray.)
In related news, written and directed by George Miller, the upcoming ‘Mad Max’ reboot, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ is set for a 2014 release. (Easily one of my most anticipated movies.) ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ brilliantly stars Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky; Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Zoe Kravitz,Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Here is how George Miller describes the new post-apocalyptic flick. “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 the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.”
