'Mad Max: Fury Road' Is Now A Film Festival Award Winner, Beats Arthouse Faves For Grand Prix At San Sebastian While Warner Bros. has "Black Mass," "Our Brand Is Crisis," and "Creed" on their awards season slate, it must be noted that if they haven't been figuring out a game plan for "Mad Max: Fury Road," maybe now is the time. Critics and audiences have been vocal supporters of the picture, but now it has added a film festival laurel to it shelf. George Miller's movie has picked up the FIPRESCI Grand Prix award at The San Sebastian Film Festival.

Robert Rodriguez’s latest guest on El Rey Network Presents: The Director’s Chair is Australian auteur George Miller who, we are promised, will be discussing pretty much his entire career as director, writer, and producer when the show airs Aug. 30. That may well be, but we’re going to bet...

Last month, Entertainment Weekly interviewed Tom Holkenborg, a.k.a. Junkie XL, the composer who scored George Miller’s totally bonkers Mad Max: Fury Road. “The wasteland George created and the caricature of the dictator Immortan Joe, the look of the war boys, the cars—it’s so over the top...

George Miller Was Thinking About a Female Mad Max in 1985 Imperator Furiosa was the break-out character in Mad Max: Fury Road, with Max himself at times taking a back-seat to Charlize Theron’s one-armed warrior. And in a 30-year-old interview that has been published for the first time today, it seems writer-director George Miller was trying to figure out how to work such a character into the universe back in 1985.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Gets an ’80s Makeover in New Grindhouse-Style Trailer (Video) The Playback Collective has released a grindhouse-style trailer for George Miller‘s “Mad Max: Fury Road” that features hallmarks of all the great ’80s action movies. The retro trailer opens with old logos for Warner Bros. and the Cannon Group before a sick synth score plays over grainy, desaturated footage from “Fury Road,” which still looks good even with an ’80s makeover. The Playback Collective uses “Vengeance” by Power Glove to hammer home the unique feel.

Because of its many strong female characters and the fact that Charlize Theron's Furiosa pretty much takes center stage from Tom Hardy's titular Road Warrior, George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is being hailed as a "feminist blockbuster". This hasn't gone down too well with MRAs (lol), and has led to quite a few idiotic questions during the movie's press circuit. One such question was aimed at Tom Hardy earlier this month at Cannes. Skip to the 9:45 mark to hear it, and Hardy's response. Peter Howell: I have a question for Tom Hardy.

‘Avengers 2′ & ‘Mad Max: Fury Road': Making Those Big Stunts and Battle Scenes There’s something interesting about how the summer 2015 movie season is rolling out, so far. Things’s started off with the biggest superhero sequel ever, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and after a week’s break came Mad Max: Fury Road from director George Miller – a film already being called ‘one of the best action films in years.’However, what’s interesting about having Avengers 2 and Mad Max 4 in such close proximity is how different they are in terms of cinematic construction.
