WATCH: Six-minutes of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga are here for your pleasure

May 18th, 2024 by Marc Comments

Excited for Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga next weekend? Well, I have you covered!

Odeon Cinemas in the UK have just released a diesel-fuelled six minutes of the movie for your enjoyment and to get you stoked for the full experience in less than a week.

Interestingly, it has been revealed that star Taylor-Joy has less than 30 lines of dialogue in the movie, this is opposed to Tom Hardy as Max in Fury Road, who had 63 lines; on the lack of dialogue, director and creator George Miller said: “The problem with dialogue is that it tends to slow things down. Film is a medium often best enjoyed at high speed.”

While not true of all movies, obviously, it’s a great decision here as these movies don’t need quippy one-liners and jokes because Miller’s world and Max’s world, obviously, are one of minimal chat and maximum action and carnage.

Taylor-Joy stars in the title role, and along with Hemsworth, the film also stars Alyla Browne and Tom Burke.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga will be released in the UK on 24th May 2024.

Check out the footage here:

Miller penned the script with “Mad Max: Fury Road” co-writer Nico Lathouris. Miller’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes first assistant director PJ Voeten and second unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris, director of photography Simon Duggan (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “The Great Gatsby”), composer Tom Holkenborg, sound designer Robert Mackenzie, editor Eliot Knapman, visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson and colorist Eric Whipp. The team also includes other longtime collaborators: production designer Colin Gibson, editor Margaret Sixel, sound mixer Ben Osmo, costume designer Jenny Beavan and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt, each of whom won an Oscar for their work on “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
