The first cut of Mad Max: Fury Road was over three hours long; plus new pics

03.13.2015

During the production of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, rumors abounded about the film going over budget, Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy not getting along, and even Warner Bros losing confidence in director George Miller's control of the film. Then, we all saw the trailer and our collective jaws hit the floor. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD looks f*cking insane.

Now, with exactly two months until it hits theaters, we are hearing some new details that shed light on just how epic this movie is going to be. Collider sat down with Junkie XL to discuss his work scoring RUN ALL NIGHT, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and more when the topic turned to MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. The musician explained going to Sydney to meet George Miller and saw a cut of the movie that was three hours long.

“At that point, the movie had no beginning, and it had no ending. The first and last acts weren’t there, the second act was there, and that was three hours. So, the reason why it looks beautiful is that he built very, very massive scenes in Namibia...there is not a lot of CGI in there.”

Junkie XL goes on to say there are a couple of scenes with a lot of CGI, but the majority of the movie was shot with hundreds (close to a thousand) of people on the African set. George Miller has always done a lot with small budgets like he did with the original MAD MAX movies and even BABE. With the HAPPY FEET movies, the entirety of the film was computer generated, so learning that he went back to practical effects for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is exciting and mind-boggling. It is no wonder the film went over budget and freaked out the producers.

Still, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD looks like it is going to be something spectacular. You can see in the new images above and below that this movie is going to be gritty and rough, but that is exactly what MAD MAX needs to be.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD opens on May 15th.

You know it's strange that the movie is called Mad Max but the focus seem to be mainly on Charlize Theron's character. Which is fine, really, but I still don't know what the heck this movie is going to be about (besides the obvious car chase and crashes).

Tom Hardy is no Mel Gibson...

But i am looking forward to this movie and i'm pretty sure Hardy will do just fine.
What would be really cool is if we find out during the movie that mad max is considered a legend and nobody has seen him in years, nevertheless knows what he looks like, and that Hardy has taken his identity and lets people think he's mad max(for whatever reason) until he comes across the real mad max, enter Mel Gibson(who now looks ripped and still looks like he can kick everone's ass) Maybe they eventually

This way it wont be a reboot and Gibson is still the real deal.

The other option being Hardy is Max 's son who somehow survived what happened to him in part 1 and has been looking for his father for years, this way he can be referred to as mad max jr

Great to see the rebirth of a franchise that people are actually looking forward to. This is my most anticipated movie for the year - can't wait.

look, mostly everyone (myself included) is beyond excited for age of ultron, but mad max might very well end up being the movie of the summer. the movie looks unreal.

I've always preferred a practical action effect to an massively overblown CGI one. Practicals are almost a testament to the craft of the techs, planners and stunt people that make CGI stunts look sort of flaccid by comparison.

We've been waiting 30 years for a new reincarnation of Max. 3 hours if mayhem suits me just fine.
