Mad Max: Fury Road came charging into theaters with heart-stopping chrome action, guns blazing, and a beautiful rocking soundtrack. Since its release, the film has been earning huge praise from fans and critics alike, it leads the Critics Choice Awards with 13 nominations, and has been nominated for two Golden Globes.
While Fury Road has been released on home entertainment platforms, those itching to see it in a theatrical format may get their chance, as there are talks of getting the film back into theaters, but with one very exciting catch. According to director George Miller, there is a chance that the film could be seen in black and white. Check out what Miller had to say below.
Following Mad Max: Fury Road crushing the box office with a resounding global $374.7 million, Warner Bros. was not surprisingly quick to announce that a sequel was on its way. It’s a normal reaction to a giant success such as Fury Road, but it’s going to get better as director George Miller has confirmed that there will not be one, but two Mad Max sequels in the near future. More on the story below.
Last week brought news that Mad Max: Fury Road‘s George Miller was rumored to be in talks to direct Man of Steel 2. Of course given how close the filmmaker was to directing a Justice League film back in the in the late 2000s, it was long overdue. And perhaps Fury Road‘s success convinced WB that the director deserved such an honor. However, there was no mention of a sequel during SDCC, and the film isn’t officially scheduled for a release, tentative or otherwise. Still Warner Bros. may be waiting to see how successful Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are before they confirm anything, which makes sense.
However, there is a new report saying that WB may actually be putting Man of Steel 2 on a permanent hold. More on the story below.
Warner Bros. is proceeding carefully with their plans for a shared cinematic universe based around their DC Comics properties (a lot of which rides on next March’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) to compete with the unassailable Marvel Studios. They had originally planned a sequel to 2013’s Superman reboot Man of Steel to kick off the summer of 2018, but the tentatively-titled Man of Steel 2 was taken off the roster as James Wan’s Aquaman moved into position as Warner/DC’s big 2018 summer tentpole release. Meanwhile, a solo Batman reboot starring Ben Affleck has been dated for November of that year.
Unlike Marvel Studios’ blockbuster line-ups, which are usually set in stone but remain subject to the occasional alteration, the DC Comics Shared Cinematic Universe release schedule appears to be in constant flux. Even though Man of Steel 2 is not in active development at Warner Bros. for the moment, that can always change, and fast.
George Miller‘s long-overdue (as in three decades overdue) post-apocalyptic adventure sequel Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the best movies of the summer, if not the year (read Adam Frazier’s review here). After raking in over $360 million in grosses at the global box office, the relentless chase thriller starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron is coming to home video in less than two months from now.
On September 1, 2015, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Fury Road is separate 2D Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD editions. DVD copies will also be included with both Blu-ray sets, and all editions will come with bonus Ultraviolent download codes.
