Release dates for George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road and The Purge 2

11.21.2013

A couple of release dates for two upcoming films have been announced, and both are a little surprising.

The first one is for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and it comes from Deadline: the George Miller film will hit theaters on May 15th, 2015. Many assumed the movie would be in theaters sometime in 2014, but possibly because of the recent reshoots, it looks like we won't be seeing Tom Hardy as the titular character for another year and a half. Right now, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the only film being released on that date, but it will face some stiff competition with THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON out two weeks before on May 1st, and Brad Bird's TOMORROWLAND with George Clooney is scheduled to roll into theaters a week after on May 22nd.

A sequel to THE PURGE was announced almost immediately after its first weekend in theaters, and now we know when the next film will hit screens, thanks to The Wrap: June 20th, 2014. That's only seven months from now, but Universal still hasn't announced a cast for the film. The first movie was incredibly profitable for the studio, and I'm sure they want to release the sequel as soon as possible, but I hope the short time they have to work on the project doesn't impact the quality of the film.

ten bucks says universal is gonna copy the same formula from the first purge but with a new family. It's a shame because i have two ideas for this series that could be really interesting to watch and they're original

As bad as I want to see Fury Road, it will BOMB on that date. I have faith in Miller and the movie, but I just don't see it connecting in an already crowded summer. Way to go, Warner Bros!

meh

This movie had a lot of potential but fell short. I wanted to see what was going on with The Purge outside of 1 house. Hopefully they will expand the story much more to a larger scale next go round.

I enjoyed the purge and would like to see a sequel but this is rushing it. And I have been looking forward to the new Mad Max movie since I first heard about it. But releasing it in the already packed 2015 is not smart especially that close to Age of Ultron. It will be dwarfed. They should go for an August 2014 release.

To be honest, I saw The Purge the other day and enjoyed it. I went into it with low expectations and was satisfied. It didn't really try to be anything more than what the plot says it is and seemed fairly realistic given the situation. There's no timid person turned murder machine and the potential romantic subplot is ended in the first ten minutes.

As the purge turned into a terrible movie, I started thinking ab how much worse the sequel will be.

That's foolish, save it for the late Fall or Winter but before STAR WARS obviously.
