September 2, 2015It finally came!
- Mad Max Fury Road has been released basically everywhere on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download. My copy arrived today, bundled with the Mad Max game, and is the standard Blu-ray release. As per the news below for August 19, all the releases appear to be the same as far as the extras content, so it's really just a question of whether you need 3D, or if you can't do Blu-ray yet and need a DVD. I haven't checked through all the content yet, but the extras I've looked through so far are pretty exceptional - lots of cool behind the scenes stuff on the cars and stunts. Basically all the material everyone drops by the web site looking for from the original trilogy! The deleted scenes were interesting, but perhaps a little light on - we know from various interviews that there were other scenes shot, but I guess they were either deemed incomplete or not suitable to be put on the disc. That would be my only disappointment with the set, and realistically its a very small one, given the amount of other material that we've been given.
August 30, 2015Creating the Apocalypse
- The Sydney Opera House are presenting an event on the 11th of October, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD - CREATING THE APOCALYPSE - GEORGE MILLER, BRENDAN MCCARTHY & NICO LATHOURIS IN CONVERSATION. You can find further information at the web site here, be sure to check out the full festival schedule here, as you may also find some other sessions of interest, including a separate talk with Brendan McCarthy.
August 26, 2015Mad Max - Post Apocalypse Edition
- For all you gamers, don't forget the Mad Max game out on PS4, XBOXONE and PC next week. Here in Australia the release coincides with the DVD / Blu-ray release of the film, and EB Games have a pack available that includes both the game and the Blu-ray for $99.95, plus a bunch of extras. Quite a good deal, I've ordered mine there today. If anyone else is aware of any packs, bonus deals, etc, feel free to let me know.
August 19, 2015Fury Road with the Lot
- Fury Road is due out on Blu-ray, DVD, etc in only a couple of weeks now, on September 1st. Most countries seem to be getting pretty much the same content and release date, Amazon have listed a package which includes Mad Max Fury Road Blu-ray/3D/DVD/Digital here. If you don't need the 3D, the cheaper Blu-Ray (with DVD) is here, or the DVD only version is here.
- As mentioned, most countries are getting pretty much standard releases of the film as listed above, HOWEVER, in Germany they're releasing a limited collector's edition set, which also includes an Interceptor model.
