Back in 2015, George Miller introduced us to the post-apocalyptic futuristic world of Mad Max. The role of Max Rockatansky was played by none other than Tom Hardy while Charlize Theron played Furiosa.
How was Mad Max: Fury Road?
The movie was a huge commercial and blockbuster success and went on to win six Oscars. It managed to secure 10 Academy Award nominations, some of which included Best Picture and Best Director for Miller.
Internationally, it grossed a net of $400 million and almost every movie critique praised the action-packed franchise.
Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer rated it at 97%, making it one of the highest-rated movies to date. Mad Max: Fury Road scores an impressive 8.1 out of 10 on IMDB as well.
Where is the damn sequel?
This is the question everyone is asking for the last four years. In a recent chat with Indiewire, George Miller talked about his plans on making quite a few sequels to Mad Max: Fury Road.
There are two stories, both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story.It seems to be pretty clear that it’s going to happen.
Miller got into a legal battle with Warner Bros. after the film was released. One of the reasons why Miller sued the production giant was because of unpaid earnings.
The matter heated up so much that Australia’s Supreme Court had to step in. This was the reason why the future of the entire Mad Max franchise was dangling by a thread.
Hopefully, the legal battle will soon be resolved and it seems like Max and Furiosa will be back on their journey on the Fury Road soon! It is very much possible that we will be getting THREE sequels.
