Mad Max: Fury Road

(2015)

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

George Miller Is Not Leaving the ‘Mad Max’ Franchise

Mad Max: Fury Road originally took shape in the early 2000s, when Mel Gibson was still being eyed to come back as Max Rockatansky from the first three movies, Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. When the project was reworked with Tom Hardy as Max and Charlize Theron as Furiosa, it took a whopping three years to complete production. All of that hard work finally paid off this May, when it was released in theaters and became a commercial and critical smash hit.

Earlier today, Mad Max: Fury Road earned 10 Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture and another for George Miller as Best Director. It had the second most nominations of any movie this year, just behind The Revenant's 12 nominations. It still remains to be seen how this blockbuster will fare during Oscar season, but in a year like this where there are no front-runners for Best Picture, anything is possible.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Is Best Movie of 2015 Says National Board of Review

The National Board of Review's annual awards are often a barometer of what fans may expect during Oscar season. While we still have over a month and a half left until The Academy Awards nominations are announced, one of this year's biggest blockbusters has been given an awards season push, after The National Board of Review named Mad Max: Fury Road as their pick for the best movie of 2015. While Mad Max: Fury Road taking home this award is certainly a surprise to some, it remains to be seen how this win will affect the rest of the awards season.

The last movie to win both The National Board of Review's best picture and the Academy Award for Best Picture was Slumdog Millionaire back in 2008. Last year, the Board bestowed A Most Violent Year with their top pick, and it wasn't even nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. However, between 2001 and 2013, all of their top picks received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, although only No Country for Old Men and Slumdog Millionaire wound up taking home the top Oscar.
