Whether you know it or not, you have probably watched South African stunt woman Olivia Jackson in the cinema or on tv. She doubled for Karen Gillian in Guardians of the Galaxy, drove trucks in Mad Max, and well there is also the matter of Resident Evil.
Failed to find any info on the author or the tattooed man, but still. Seems oddly appropriate. He is ex-KGB, he holds all the resources to himself, and he milks the hell out of his people.
What began as a riff on an image in this post has blossomed into a full-blown way for me to waste a little bit of time on a Saturday.
Here are your fantasy and sci-fi highlights from today’s Golden Globes nomination announcements. I think the announcers were thrilled to be there. America Ferrera is THRILLED. Feel free to add your own thought bubbles to these thrilled announcers’ flattering photo in the comments.
Max Rockatansky Tom Hardy and his stunt double have for months now been posting dubsmash* videos to a YouTube account, TomHardy dotorg.
Japanese artist Takumi recreated everything from Mad Max: Fury Road in an ancient Egyptian style, and while the movie has nothing to do with ancient Egypt, it still fits and looks really awesome with this art style.
LiveInternet-based fan group of Mad Max: Fury Road published a music video set to Rammstein’s hit Benzin, which is very fitting.
Conan O’Brien makes his way to the San Diego Comic-Con via the Fury Road, just north of La Jolla.
So, what happens when Mad Max and his friends and enemies finally run out of that precious and rare resource that they seem to have an unlimited supply of?
Like anyone who saw Mad Max, Caleb loved the Doof Warrior, but unlike anyone, Caleb is also a keen and skilled crafter, so on returning home from The Fury Road, he set about trying to recreate Doof’s signature axe but on at a slightly more manageable scale.
It would probably look something like this. Fun mashup of Buster Keaton’s The General with the Fury Road soundtrack. ETA: Now with direct embedded link from the creator (which was not credited on the old link.)
Mad Max: Fury Road is an undeniable triumph for humanity. But in case you needed even more reason to love and respect this visual masterpiece, we now have a series of comparisons showing some of the film’s original action sequence shots next to their post-visual-effects counterparts.
Obviously chock full of spoilers, this behind-the-scenes footage gives some detail of the camera cars, the stunts and just how minimally used the CGI really was - safety cables and harnesses removed in post, etc.
Guess what’s got my large intestine in a septic knot today, MANmerica? The extreme pussification and dude-slicing feminism that has taken Mad Max: Fury Road—a movie that should have been about two greased up male torsos in a UFC fight on the back of on a loud motorcycle—into a crotch-kicking misandrist fantasy…
This is a nice exercise in film editing, and in comparing the new Mad Max movie to its predecessors. Youtube user Mad Max Dedication uses footage from Mad Max II that matches footage in the Fury Road teaser from ComicCon to make a trailer for The Road Warrior that looks really great.
...it is that the 2015 Wasteland Weekend is going to be epic. For those of you who do not know, Wasteland Weekend is Mad Max inspired festival that takes place at the end of September every year in the Southern California desert. I like to think of it as Burning Man's nasty little cousin or what Comic Con would look…
Avalanche Studios, the developers of the Just Cause series, are making a Mad Max game. We don't know much about it, since only a short clip and logo was shown, but if you remember a few months back some blurry teaser images were shown which suggest the game is basically a post-apocalyptic Just Cause. With Australians.
