Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

Fury is born.

“You know, hope is a mistake. If you can’t fix what’s broken, you’ll, uh… you’ll go insane.”

Iconic Aussie filmmaker George Miller adds another chapter to his legendary franchise with FURIOSA: A MAD MAX SAGA, a fitting prequel to the triumphant 2015 series reboot, FURY ROAD. This is the first film in the franchise not focused on protagonist hero Max Rockatansky; instead we are given an origin story for FURY ROAD‘s memorable, one-armed heroine, Furiosa.

Snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers, young Furiosa falls into the hands of a great biker horde led by the warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel, presided over by the Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants fight for dominance, Furiosa soon finds herself in a nonstop battle to make her way home. With Anya Taylor Joy, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke.

“Director George Miller combines speed, grace and explosive violence, emulating Sam Peckinpah westerns and even, at times, the work of Charles Dickens – Furiosa is a bit like a young Artful Dodger, using her wits and courage to stay alive.” (The Independent)

“It’s hard to overstate how immaculately crafted Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is, both as a prequel to Max Max: Fury Road and as a stand-alone story of how the Wasteland created a powerful character.” (IGN)

“The chassis may look familiar but there is a very different engine driving Furiosa from that of Fury Road: it’s a rich, sprawling epic that only strengthens and deepens the Max-mythology. It shall ride eternal!” (Empire)
