If you loved watching “Mad Max: Fury Road” as much as critics do, then there’s good news coming your way! George Miller revealed that the sequel will be called, “Mad Max: The Wasteland.” The new title veers away from its initial title called, “Furiosa.” Will the story of the sequel also change following the change in the title? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Mad Max: Fury Road” has only been in theatres for nearly three weeks and yet people are already talking about a sequel. Much thanks to the film’s near perfect scores and positive reviews from critics, Warner Bros. is already planning on its sequel.
George Miller delivered the good news via Twitter and teased fans that, “there’s more Max to come.” Miller also revealed that the sequel will be titled, “Mad Max: The Wasteland.”
Forbes cited that a sequel to the movie has been expected even before the “Mad Max” franchise hit the theatres. As a matter of fact, the outlet noted that sequels to the franchise were also in plans back in 2010. According to the outlet, the sequel was initially titled, “Mad Max: Furiosa,” which is said to focus on Charlize Theron’s character.
With the change in the sequel’s title comes the question on whether or not Miller will decide to push through with the Theron storyline or if he will be creating an entirely new plot for the sequel.
Tom Hardy is expected to reprise his role as Max. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in September last year, Hardy said that he feels honored to be a part of the movie and hopes that there would be more “Mad Max” films in the future.
The sequel, however, heavily relies on the success of the first movie, “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The movie received a 98 percent rating on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the highest scoring films of all time. The $150 million budget movie also raked in over $109.4 million in its opening weekend, Business Wire reported.
