While a new Mad Max film is the making, scheduled for theatrical release in 2014, Warner Home Video has announced a Blu-Ray release of the Mad Max Trilogy for release in June, featuring all three of the beloved movies starring Mel Gibson.
The three films ”“ Mad Max (1979), Mad Max Road Warrior (1982) and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) ”“ are all set in the near-future in Australia. From the very first film, OscarÂ® winner George Miller proved a master at creating the gritty, bleak dystopian world and staging the incredible car stunts and crashes in the era when stuntmen, not computers, achieved the effects. All three movies starred Mel Gibson, virtually unknown until after the second film, as Max Rockatansky, a highway cop traveling through the Outback in a society descending into chaos. The films started Gibson on his road to international superstardom, led to his signature Lethal Weapon series, and later two Academy AwardsÂ® for his roles as producer and director of Braveheart (1995).
The “Mad Max Trilogy” will be released in a limited premium tin packaging and marks the first time “Beyond Thunderdome” will be available on Blu-Ray Disc. It will also be available as a single-disc release individually.
Mark June 4 in your calendars, as that is the date when “Mad Max Trilogy” will hit retail stores for $49.99.
