Back in July, we reported that director George Miller's long-awaited black and white version of Mad Mad Fury Road will finally see the light of day, and now we know exactly when it's arriving. The earlier report featured details about a German collector's edition, but today Warner Bros. confirmed that the "Black and Chrome" edition of Mad Max Fury Road will be part of a four-film collection that includes every Mad Max movie. This set will be available December 6.
Mad Max fans will have something to put atop their holiday gift lists with the Mad Max High Octane Collection, debuting December 6 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE). All four films from visionary director George Miller's blockbuster sci-fi franchise -- Mad Max (1979), Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981); Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985); and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), now with Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky -- are together in one collection. WBHE will also release a "two-film collection" Blu-ray, with the theatrical, color version of Mad Max: Fury Road and the "Black and Chrome" edition, which will be priced at $29.98 SRP.
The Mad Max High Octane Collection is available to own in both Blu-ray ($79.99 SRP) and DVD ($54.97 SRP) versions. Both collections include the four films and five hours of bonus content, including the visually stunning Mad Max: Fury Road "Black & Chrome" Edition. The Blu-ray collection will also include a 4K-Ultra HD version and a UV Digital Copy of Mad Max: Fury Road.
The High Octane Collection Special Features and Additions include the new Mad Max: Fury Road "Black & Chrome" Edition, where fans can witness the surreal black and white version of mastermind George Miller's Fury Road. There will also be a special introductory piece by George Miller describing his vision. There will also be a featurette dubbed Road War, which takes fans back to 1982, where the world was blindsided by George Miller's masterpiece of apocalyptic destruction: The Road Warrior. For the first time ever George Miller, Terry Hayes and star Mel Gibson tell the story of the car-crushing production that redefined action cinema forever.
The bonus features will also include Madness of Max, the previously released Mad Max (1979) feature-length documentary on the making of arguably the most influential movie of the past thirty years. With over forty cast-and-crew interviews, hundreds of behind-the-scenes photographs and never-before-seen film footage of the shoot, this is, without a doubt, the last word on Mad Max (1979). Interviews include: George Miller, Byron Kennedy, Mel Gibson, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Steve Bisley, Roger Ward, Joanne Samuel, David Eggby, Jon Dowding and many more. From the Producers to the Bike Designers to the Traffic Stoppers, this is the story of how Mad Max was made.
