What I really want is to play the game. Multi-player car death ride looks like a blast. The trailers to this movie look like fun too.
also, 1:31, is Mel doing a cameo?
Racist weirdo that he is (and I still loved Apocalypto after all of that) the wikipedia says that he lost interest in 2000. I don't think that's Mel, although it looks like Mel circa 1996 or so. Maybe it's CGI Mel and they're doing the Terminator Genysis thing?
No, it's an Australian actor named Richard Carter. Although it might be an attempt to remind people of Mel.

Holy shit. I've pretty worn out by the whole Apocalypse Dudes thing, but I'll be damned if the music didn't sell me.
Why have people in cars when you can have cg people in cg cars?
Always seems like regular people in CGI cars drive like this, while CGI people in CGI cars drive like shit! What's with these people?
I am a little saddened that they didn't use a CGI people at the end of the sandstorm clip though. That must really hurt!

I support any excuse to put Tom Hardy back in a Bane mask.
Let me just lube up my b-hole and bend over here. Hey T-Hards... wanna play croquet?

When did "See it in 2D or 3D" become a thing? It's kind of like "buy it now on Xbox 360 or Xbox One." The difference is you're dropping maybe half the cost of a bag of theatre popcorn for one experience over the other, whereas you're dropping half a paycheck to play the better looking version on a more advanced console. Unless you have motion sickness, there's no excuse not to see this in 3D, if it's your kind of thing.
Because a lot of bloggers with motion sickness whine about 3d
3d is a shitty gimmick that adds nothing to the experience except eye stain
Because, believe it or not, not everybody lives near a theater that's 3D capable. Some people live in small communities with just a local movie house that can't show 3D movies, and they want to remind those people that they can see the movie in 2D as well (as opposed to not seeing it at all).
Tough American Bouncer
Every 3D thing I have seen looks like 2d planes that have some space between them - that looks unrealistic and takes you away from the movie.
The best looking 3D movie I have seen is the 3D version of Jurassic Park, it actually looks as if they made it that way in the first place, and doesn't have flat planes.
Honorable mentions: Gravity, Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
What if you only have 1 eye, scumbags?? Fuck you and your headache inducing, shit looking 3D.
Seconding ashtar. Also, it adds a lot of pointless "let's poke things at the camera" kind of cinematography.
Fuck 3D movies. Fuck them so hard. I've seen like 3 movies that way, each time telling myself "maybe THIS one will look cool in 3D" and it never fucking does. It just hurts my eyes, and makes images at the edge of the screen have a weird ghosting effect.
It's a dumb fucking gimmick that I just wish would die. I hate how every movie now has to have a sequence where shit flies at the camera, or a sequence where the camera zips along almost in first-person, cause, OHHH! 3D!!!
I remember watching the last Hobbit movie and seeing CG gold coins flying at the screen, and thinking "That was weird, why did they do-- oh yeah... this movie came out in 3D too. BAAAARRRF".
Heh. And that's what I have to say about that.
You 2D dorks sound like my grandma, whining because the our last remaining local video store doesn't stock VHS tapes.
If you're going to be a caveman and actually go watch a movie in the theaters, instead of pirating it and watching it on your 60" television like a normal human being, then you might as go all in and watch the stupid thing in the most absurdly decadent manner possible. Yeah, you may miss some of the artistic nuances of Mad Max putting his fist through a midget's face-bone, but so what?
I find wearing 3D glasses over my regular glasses mildly annoying.
It's actually been difficult for me to find movies in 3D, and I live in a very central part of a fairly large town. I'm just surrounded by independently owned movie theatres that either can't afford or won't make the necessary changes to incorporate 3D projection because the film they show don't really need it. I'm willing to bet that someone who lives in a very small rural area probably has a metroplex closer to them than I do. To me it's the difference between attending the Symphony and listening to Classical Music on your computer. Dredd was the last one I saw in 3D, and the fact that it was also a great movie about my second favorite comic book character helped, but I downloaded it in 2D and, well I was left with a good movie. 3D's gimmicky for sure, it always has been. But it's a fun ride.
@mag I think I was typing that while you responded. I totally didn't consider people who might wear glasses, which is a lot of people.
I avoid 3D movies because of the hilariously inflated ticket price add-on and because I'm not paying that much for glasses to not fit properly over my normal glasses and give me a headache.
Too much CGI for a car movie
Jet Bin Fever
YES, I agree with you about something. Just get some fucking cars and film the fucking thing out in the outback.
Sexy Duck Cop
You literally just said that a movie famous for its extensive use of practical effects instead of CGI has too much CGI.
Jesus, it's like....at this point I'm in awe of your ability to be wrong in every conceivable field of human thought.
|Innocent Bystander |
Looking awesome, yes, but I hope they remember that Mad Max is about other stuff too.
Looks cool, but god how I am sick of the jump-cut school of trailer editing.
I imagine a couple of teenage lads cackling over the fact that everyone will have to watch their trailer while constantly hitting the space bar over and over
I am so down for this. You have no idea.
|Hugo Gorilla |
I like the part with the car wrecks.
sure let's re-make some more old shit. have it look like a video game for 14 year olds, see if i care
|Yellow Lantern |
"Beyond Thunderdome" is the only Mad Max film I have ever seen
I find that deeply offensive for some reason. Fuck you, buddy.
I don't hate Beyond Thunderdome, but watch the second one.
America, Land of the Remake
...financing a movie by an Australian director, starring a British man and a South African woman
but yeah, sure, AMERICA
And the original writer/director of the first 3 movies. But yeah...a remake.
From the director of Happy Feet, Happy Feet Two and Babe 2: Pig in the City comes "an apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life."
Yeah I'll watch it.
Remakes have been an integral part of movie making since the beginning.
The Great Train Robbery, which is arguably the first film to tell a story, was remade (shot-for-shot, with the exact same title) seven fucking months later:
Anyway, this shit looks good - look like it's not a 'gritty reboot', and doesn't seem to take itself seriously which I think is very much in the spirit of Mad Max.
At least we only do movies. The French are on their 5th republic or something. Lame. Get some new ideas already, France.
All the people crying "WAHHHHH CG" have clearly gotten to the point where they can no longer differentiate reality from computer effects. The reason this film took so fucking long to make is because George Miller wanted most of it to be done practically, or else Mad Max 4 would have been in the can almost a decade ago. The cars were built for real, the stunts were for real, the film is highly physical despite the introduction of new effects-driven stuff. Getting the time and resources and location together to have a dozen or so hot rods tear-assing around in the desert doing tons of practical stunts is virtually impossible these days.
The problem for me is that gratuitous use of full CG car doubles, even if it "looks" real (but your mind knows it's fake), is that you then think some of the incredible real stunts are fake too.
Is the sand tornado thing really needed? Because it made me doubt the authenticity of a lot of other shots.
This looks like a Judas Priest album cover come to life. I can't wait.
Also, they brought back the goddamn Toe Cutter in the form of an albino gas mask wearing wasteland mutant. How can you not love that?
|Old People |
Meh. I always liked the first one because it was a believable look at a civilization guttering out. This shit, on the other hand, seems pretty generic.
I always thought the first one was kinda boring, like Evil Dead vs. Evil Dead 2. That coupled with the horrible Mel American dub, which is the only one I've seen. I should re-watch the original, but I think I preferred all the over-the-top action that came after.
It's a little slow, sure, but the scenes of the decaying police department, and what happens when a biker gang realizes that the cops have effectively abandoned outlying towns, their predictable escalation from pranks and bullying to outright rape and murder, are unsettlingly realistic and make it worth watching.
Plus, the Pursuit Special. GodDAMN that is a cool car.
That is a badass car. I think I might have been a little bit too young to get most of that plot stuff. I remember when we got Grindhouse at our theatre, I was one of the few people who stood up for Death Proof over Planet Terror. Nothing much action-wise happens for 80 or so minutes, but the payoff was outstanding.
I hear you- the original is definitely underappreciated- but it's easy for something to look "generic" when it more or less created a genre.
in a world full of cheeto dust.
Goddamnit.. thanks to poeTV I will now see "Furry" every time I see the title, and now "cheeto dust." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I was excited about this movie until I watched this preview. Way too much CGI for a movie about dudes beefing it through the desert in beat up old cars. The cars look really stupid too. Whereas the original seemed like they were just old cars that they took and modified out of necessity, these are just silly.
I dunno.. assuming I have this correct and this is 15 years after the first Mad Max, it's like this Wal Mart bike that I bought purely for practical and financial reasons when I was 18. Now that I'm 32, that shit's tricked the fuck out. As far as the CGI goes, sandstorm's pretty obvious but the rest of it has this cartoonish feeling that Sin City's CGI had, which I really kinda like.
Wouldn't everyone be driving Priuses instead of dune buggies that shoot flames out of their exhaust pipes?
|Mister Yuck |
This was a perfect movie, except for exactly one shot.
