For many, “Mad Max: Fury Road” is considered an action masterpiece. The spin-off and prequel “Furiosa” is currently being filmed. First pictures provide an impression of the set.
30 years after “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome” director George Miller was able to join “Mad Max: Fury Road” finally make the post-apocalyptic action film he’s always wanted to make. The fast-paced chase through the desert with Tom Hardy (Max Rockatansky) and Charlize Theron (Furiosa) is one of the best representatives of the genre and is considered an action milestone of recent years. Miller had been planning a sequel for some time, but took it “Mad Max: Furiosa” only slowly taking shape.
