Mad Max: Fury Road Rough Cut Screened!
By Dr. Know on October 20th, 2014
If I wasn’t over-the-moon-excited about Mad Max: Fury Road before (and I sure as hell was) I’m definitely salivating to see it now; Mad Max: Fury Road co- star Nicholous Hoult (Warm Bodies) has seen a rough cut of the film and he had nothing but good things to say!
“I’ve seen a rough cut,” Hoult told MTV News. “I was just sitting there, going like, ‘Whoa.’ ”
Hoult confirmed the rumor that there’s very little dialogue in Fury Road and that when he sat down to read the script for the first time, it was more like reading, “a 300-page comic book, technically.”
“You have the odd word, but the dialogue, it’s strange, the words they used,” he said. “They didn’t speak like I would speak, or like anybody would speak nowadays.”
As for George Miller – the mastermind behind the first three Mad Max movies, as well as this new take – Hoult had nothing but kind words.
“He’s so smart,” Hoult said of the writer-director. “The world he’s created, it just looks stunning.”
On the chance you haven’t been following the development of this one, here’s the official lowdown:
Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.
Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.
And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from Prometheus), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.
Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hugh Keays-Byrne (The Toecutter in the ’70s original), and Nathan Jones co-star.
George Miller returns to direct the world he created from a script he co-wrote with Brendan McCarthy and Nico Lathouris.
