What a lovely day!
The Rio Theatre‘s been absolutely inundated with requests for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD – a perfectly moody, cinematic accompaniment to the smokiness of the Lower Mainland. And since we’re here to oblige, we’re bringing George Miller’s latest addition to the iconic franchise to our screen on Thursday, September 6.
Australian director George Miller managed to reboot his own iconic MAD MAX franchise with the triumphant 2015 release of the universally acclaimed FURY ROAD, a commercial and critical hit that went on to win numerous accolades, including six Oscars. Tom Hardy stars as the titular Mad Max Rockatansky alongside Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, and Hugh Keays-Byrne in this wildly imaginative and visually stunning post-apocalyptic dystopian desert fantasy. Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside the desert fortress the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Theron) leads the despot’s five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Hardy), a loner and former captive. Fortified in the massive, armored truck the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord’s henchmen in a high-speed, deadly chase through the Wasteland.
