Hey everyone, so Comic-Con happened this past weekend, and it was pretty cool. I thought I would take some time to review some of the major highlights of this year’s Comic-Con.
George Miller showed up to the Mad Max: Fury Road panel this weekend, director of the original trilogy returns to his most important franchise with a new installment starring Tom Hardy as the titular character (replacing Mel Gibson) and Charlize Theron. Here’s the trailer:
Miller also spoke up about his intended plans for Fury Road to be the first in a new trilogy, with a script for Mad Max 5 already have been written by him.
I love hearing this news to be honest. When I heard about a new Mad Max film, I immediately thought to myself “oh great. Another disappointingly underwhelming remake on the way” but I am proud of George Miller for trying to tell a new installment. A sequel has the potential to be stronger than a remake, as a remake has too many rules to follow.
So what do you think about Mad Max: Fury Road’s news? Are you fans of sequels over remakes, or do you pine for something original in the world?
