The Mad Max Trilogy Heading to Blu-ray

Posted February 25, 2013 05:35 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that it will release on Blu-ray The Mad Max Trilogy. The must-own collection, which will arrive in limited premium tin packaging, will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on June 4th.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, which is making its Blu-ray debut, will also be available as a single along with Mad Max Road Warrior.

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, Oscar-winner George Miller (Happy Feet, 2006) 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 Awards for his roles as producer and director of Braveheart (1995).

Mad Max (1979)

George Miller's first entry in the trilogy, Mad Max packs brutal action and insane stunts as it follows the inevitable downfall of relentless cop Max Rockatansky (Gibson) in a world gone mad. Living on the edge of an apocalypse, Max is ready to run far away from it all with his family. But when he experiences an unfortunate encounter with a motorcycle gang and its menacing leader, the Toecutter, his retreat from the madness of the world is now a race to save his family's life.

Mad Max Road Warrior (1982)

The sequel to Mad Max, Mad Max Road Warrior provides action-packed, "automotive" entertainment, telling the story of a selfish-turned-selfless hero and his efforts to protect a small camp of desert survivors and defend an oil refinery under siege from a ferocious marauding horde that plunders the land for gasoline.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)

Mel Gibson returns for his third go-round as the title hero who takes on the barbarians of the post-nuclear future - and this time becomes the savior of a tribe of lost children. Music superstar Tina Turner co-stars as Aunty Entity, a power-mad dominatrix determined to use Max to tighten her stranglehold on Bartertown, where fresh water, clean food and gasoline are worth more than gold.

I'm torn between getting this now or waiting for a set with the fourth one coming out. If the new one was meant to be a reboot or something, I'd get this trilogy by itself. But because it will be a sequel/continuation, I might wait till the entire series together in one nice set. At the same time though, different lead actors....

Listen all! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now! Busted up, and everyone talking about hard rain! But we've learned, by the dust of them all... Bartertown learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens here! And it finishes here! Two men enter; one man leaves.

I already have Mad Max and The Road Warrior. So cheers to Warner Bros. for also releasing Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome as an individual release, for those of us who aren't interested in the limited edition and just want to complete the trilogy.

I wonder if the statement "... will also be available as a single along with Mad Max Road Warrior" means a new Road Warrior single release with lossless audio, as others have speculated. If so, I'll double-dip.

My understanding was that the second movie was originally titled Mad Max 2, IMDB now has it as Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, the original Blu-ray just uses The Road Warrior, and here they're calling it Mad Max Road Warrior.

Well, I'll be passing on the set, as there is 0% chance of me ever owning "Beyond Thunderdome" after watching it on DVD recently and being reminded just how poor of a film it really is compared to the first two. And since I already own the excellent MGM Blu-ray of the original "Mad Max," the only thing I'm interested in is possibly rebuying "Mad Max 2" (The Road Warrior), as I felt the original Warner Blu-ray release, while not at all terrible, was a little lackluster (not just in terms of the lossy audio, but also regarding the color-timing, which looked pale and dull to my eyes). I'd also like to see the North American theatrical "The Road Warrior" title card at the beginning of the film instead of the Australian "Mad Max 2."

Not sure whether or not Warner will be remastering either "Mad Max" or "The Road Warrior" for the upcoming set, but if they've struck a deal with MGM for the first film, they don't need to do anything to the first film, so they should pretty much focus on fixing "Mad Max 2." As for "Thunderdome," my guess is that most fans couldn't care less what they do regarding that one...

I'd say there's probably a good chance that what we'll see in the set is the currently existing MGM disc of "Mad Max," the currently existing (though now OOP in the U.S.) Warner disc of "The Road Warrior," and a so-so first time release of "Thunderdome" (for those select few who even care).

@MetalMike666: The Warner Blu-ray release of "The Road Warrior" is labeled as such on the Blu-ray cover and disc art, but during playback of the film, it is in fact titled "Mad Max 2," and is the original uncut Australian version which contains some brief snippets of additional violent footage not included in the U.S. theatrical cut of the film (titled "The Road Warrior").

@ Caesu

Knowing Warner Brothers, Road Warrior won't have lossless audio. In the past, Warner Brothers just repackages with current blu-ray releases into their trilogies, and other multiple packs. So if Road Warrior not going to be remastered with the inclusion of lossless audio, I wouldn't be surprised. Most likely it won't!

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior was named, when the movie was released theatrically in Australia. For the U.S release, it was renamed on: The Road Warrior.

Mad Max is OK but a bit over the top with the frantic bad guys. The Road Warrior is an awesome movie and few action movies come close to it. Thunderdome is The Empire Strikes Back of the group with Tina Turner and the cute kids. As it is just #2 for me thanks.
