George Miller Promises More ‘Mad Max’; Reveals Next Title
  |  @   |  

The long-awaited Mad Max: Fury Road finally released last week, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. While critically successful the movie didn’t dominate at the box office, finishing in second place domestically behind Pitch Perfect 2 its first weekend. It also had to deal with the juggernaut Avengers: Age of Ultron, which finished third in its third weekend of release and brought its grand total to $1.1 billion worldwide.

Despite the big time competition, Fury Road has still managed a strong $110 million worldwide so far—$3 million more than Pitch Perfect 2 currently has made thanks to better numbers in foreign markets—on its $150 million budget, so naturally fans will wonder whether or not there will be a sequel.

According to director George Miller, there will indeed be more movies, and he’s even shared the title of the next one. You can see what he had to say below.

“Oh, what a day! What a lovely day!”

Mad Max: Fury Road is nothing short of a goddamn masterpiece. This is an epic of grease, gunpowder, and gasoline – a feminist, post-apocalyptic Western on wheels, all shiny and chrome. This is action cinema in its purest, most exhilarating form.

Co-written and directed by George Miller, Fury Road finds The Road Warrior himself, Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), pursued by Warboys, a bloodthirsty clan of marauders under the command of the tyrannical Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne). The leather-clad maniacs capture Max and haul him off to the Citadel, a massive stronghold where the warlord rules over the poor, sickly wretches of the wasteland.

Within the Citadel, Max becomes a blood bag for Nux (Nicholas Hoult), a wounded Warboy. Max hangs upside down, his blood draining into Nux, who wants nothing more than to die a glorious soldier’s death and be ushered into shiny, chrome-colored Valhalla.
