If you were looking for a reason to double dip on anything Mad Max, the Mad Max High Octane Collection and the Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition should be a good enough reason. The High Octane collection will have all four movies in the series, including the highly anticipated black and white version of Fury Road. The Black & Chrome Edition is only the original Fury Road and this new black and white version.
This is something that fans of the franchise have been waiting for since director George Miller said, “the best version of this movie is black and white.” Of course, this falls a little bit short of the theatrical release that it deserves, but hey, we are still getting the version of the movie the way it was meant to be seen. More details on the two collections below.
Here are the bonus features that are included in the Mad Max High Octane Collection:
Fury Road “Black & Chrome” Edition – Witness the surreal black and white version of mastermind George Miller’s Fury Road.
George Miller Introduction to the Mad Max Fury Road: Black and Chrome Edition – Special introductory piece by George Miller describing his vision.
Road War – In 1982, the world was blindsided by George Miller’s masterpiece of apocalyptic destruction: The Road Warrior. For the first time ever George Miller, Terry Hayes and star Mel Gibson tell the story of the car-crushing production that redefined action cinema forever.
Madness of Max – The previously released Mad Max (1979) documentary is a feature-length documentary on the making of arguably the most influential movie of the past thirty years. With over forty cast-and-crew interviews, hundreds of behind-the-scenes photographs and never-before-seen film footage of the shoot, this is, without a doubt, the last word on Mad Max (1979). Interviews include: George Miller, Byron Kennedy, Mel Gibson, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Steve Bisley, Roger Ward, Joanne Samuel, David Eggby, Jon Dowding and many more. From the Producers to the Bike Designers to the Traffic Stoppers, this is the story of how Mad Max was made.
Now if you don’t want the High Octane Collection because you have the films already and just want to have the black and white film, then your best bet is to purchase the Black & Chrome Edition.
Mad Max High Octane Collection Blu-ray is priced at $79.99, while the DVD costs $54.97. Or you could purchase the separate Mad Max: Fury Road Black & Chrome Edition on Blu-ray for $29.98. The new releases will hit store shelves on December 6.
