BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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. The season officially is underway, launching each year as the triumphant trio of September film festivals Ė Venice, Telluride and Toronto Ė kick-start a bevy of campaigns that will position films, performers and behind-the-scenes talents for potential Oscar glory.
Tom Hardy took over the Mad Max franchise after Mel Gibson gave it a whirl, but what would have the summerís hidden gem have looked like with the original headliner in the lead role? See Fury Road re-envisioned with Gibson as our post-apocalyptic hero in the video below.
Weíre going to talk about the end of Mad Max: Fury Road, which will obviously contain SPOILERS for the film in question. If you havenít seen it yet, you should do so at the earliest convenience, itís awesome, but maybe go read one of our other articles in the meantime.
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.
The internet is full of video of people beating up terrible movies. The thing is, thatís incredibly easy to do. Itís much harder to make quality jokes at the expense of a good movie. It can actually be even funnier since you donít hear those jokes nearly as often.
Before you set your DVRís for all of the big fall premieres, do yourself a favor and check out whatís headed into homes during the month of September. We doubt youíll regret it.†
If you're one of the people who haven't seen Mad Max: Fury Road yet, you're about to run out of excuses. It hits Blu-ray soon, and to celebrate, we have a new deleted scene for you to check out.
Are you ready to cap off your night with some high octane action? Strap in, shift down, prepare yourself for the chase compilation to end all chase compilations.
Watch the enclosed clip. I think it will help you better understand how CG can and should be used to enhance practical effects, and that the dismissal of CG as a viable tool is shortsighted.
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.
Just before Fall TV premieres, we often get a bunch of DVD and Blu-ray releases for TV dramas and comedies. As such, itís not surprising that there are a ton of TV releases coming out this month.
As San Diego Comic-Con rolled on, the cosplayers came out in full force. Part of the fun of walking the floor comes with running into life-size versions of the characters that we love from the screen and the page.
Both Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy were both quite stressed out during the production of George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, with the environment and isolation both taking its toll on the two actors. As bad as it was, however, they actually left the set on good terms - partially in thanks to a self-portrait that Hardy painted and gave to his co-star as a wrap gift.
Iím sure we all have our issues with the Academy, whether itís how seemingly deserving films and directors get snubbed or how motion capture isnít a recognized Oscar category. But Jack Gill has been fighting for years to get his fellow stuntmen the recognition they deserve from the Academy, and now he has more backing from high-profile celebrities than ever before.
The CinemaBlend staff saw a lot of movies during the first six months of 2015, and we tracked all of our scores to come up with a collective average of the 10 best movies that have reached theaters.
We all know how tough it is to meet people. Sometimes however, you meet people in the last place you expect, like the middle of an apocalyptic wasteland surrounded by murderous zealots trying to kill you.
