BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Though it eventually wound up making a tidy sum, it took a while, and there was some doubt about Mad Max: Fury Road getting a sequel. Though it's moving forward, now it is with one big change.
Want to see Mel Gibson and Tom Hardy appear together in the same Mad Max film? That's a silly question, of course you do. Sadly George Miller doesn't want this to happen.
This past summerís Mad Max: Fury Road won over audiences and critics alike with itís non-stop action and refreshing characters like Charlize Theronís Furiosa. And according to the director, there's a very good reason why the hero had to be a woman.
Fandango surveyed more than a thousand film fans in October about which 2015 movie-inspired costumes theyíll be wearing this Halloween, and the results are in.
We could go on and on about Charlize Theronís scene-stealing ó actually, entire-movie-stealing ó role as Furiousa in Mad Max: Fury Road. But, sadly, here is not the place for that, because doing so would make the following update on the next Mad Max sequel too painful to bear.
From itís commitment to relying on practical effects to George Millerís brilliant construction of the apocalyptic wasteland, there are many great things to say about Mad Max: Fury Road. That does not mean it is not without sin, however.
The smart money was on Mad Max: Fury Road getting a sequel thanks to the way it performed this summer, and of course, it looks like that second trip is going to happen.
Bad news, George Miller probably isn't directing Man Of Steel 2 after all. Which suddenly means that the superhero follow-up has immediately lost some appeal.
Welcome, all, to the return of Awards Blend, CinemaBlendís weekly conversation surrounding all things Oscar.

Now that the summer has officially ended, movie fans are already amalgamating their best-of lists. And while the likes of Mission: Impossible Ė Rogue Nation, Inside Out, and The End Of The Tour each enthralled and wowed for a variety of reasons, nothing quite made the critical impact of Mad Max: Fury Road.
It may only be September, but one group of international critics has already awarded its best movie of the year, and it's George Miller's action opus Mad Max: Fury Road.
Mad Max: Fury Road was the surprise gem of the summer movie slate, thanks in large part to Charlize Theronís Furiosa, the incredible direction from George Miller, and, of course, those Warboys. To keep the momentum going and to celebrate the release of the new Mad Max video game, Warner Bros. partnered with Uber in Seattle to offer customers the post-apocalyptic car ride of their lives.

With the right budget and a proper greenlight, Charlize Theron could be shaving her head, slipping on the post-apocalyptic duds, and heading back into the deserts of North Africa before she knows it.
