The Mad Max trilogy gets Blu-ray release

mmtrilogyWarner Home Video has announced the Blu-ray release of The MAD MAX Trilogy on June 4th.

The three films – Mad Max (1979), Mad Max Road Warrior (1982) and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) – are all set in the near-future in Australia. From the very first film, Oscar® winner George Miller (Happy Feet, 2006) proved a master at creating the gritty, bleak dystopian world and staging the incredible car stunts and crashes in the era when stuntmen, not computers, achieved the effects. All three movies starred Mel Gibson, virtually unknown until after the second film, as Max Rockatansky, a highway cop traveling through the Outback in a society descending into chaos. The films started Gibson on his road to international superstardom, led to his signature Lethal Weapon series, and later two Academy Awards® for his roles as producer and director of Braveheart (1995).

You can keep Thunderdome, but MM and The Road Warrior were awesome. At least, I remember them as being awesome. Truth be told, it has been over a decade since I saw any of these.

SRP is $49.99
